Looking back on what has been a notably depressing year, it might seem a near-impossible task to pick out moments worthy of levity. Thankfully, that is the job of Jimmy Carr and regular team captains Jon Richardson and Sean Lock, old hands at refashioning the awfulness of the real world into digestible chunks of frippery. Panellists Isy Suttie, Richard Osman, Joey Essex and Romesh Ranganathan assist them, while elsewhere games and surprises are promised.
