One Brexit positive? It may make HIGNFY watchable again

The panel show hasn't been funny since at least 2012. But the sheer stupidity and self-destructiveness of our politics may just help it rediscover its bite.

Stuart Heritage, The Guardian, 5th April 2019

Series we've lost count (it's 57, if you must ask) of the panel show begins with David Dimbleby in the host's chair. Joining Merton and Hislop, meanwhile, are the doc-maker, Stacey Dooley and the German comic Henning Wehn, who is sure to land some digs at his adopted country's omni-Brexit-shambles.

Danny Dyer hosts Have I Got News for You, review

"I forgot how highbrow this f***ing show is." So said guest host Danny Dyer on Have I Got News For You (BBC One). The EastEnders star's industrial language and nimble natural wit made for an uproarious installment of the hoary old satirical quiz.

Michael Hogan, The Telegraph, 7th December 2018

National treasure and succinct David Cameron biographer Danny Dyer lands in the host's chair for that increasingly rare thing: a must-see episode of the game old panel show. Ian Hislop and Paul Merton will patronise him at their peril. In the other guest slots are comic Sara Pascoe and Judy Murray.
