Series 15 - Christmas Special

Dara O Briain presents the now traditional Mock The Week Christmas special, filled with all the usual festive irreverence and inappropriateness. Joined, as ever, by a host of top comedy performers, Dara and Hugh tackle a fiendish quiz, try some seasonal food, open presents and throw in much loved rounds such as Newsreel, Scenes We'd Like to See and If This is the Answer. There'll also be some out-takes and best bits from the year gone by.
