Further details

Join host Dara O'Briain and regulars Hugh Dennis, Frankie Boyle, Andy Parsons and Russell Howard, with newcomers to the show Greg Davies and Danielle Ward.

The show starts with the headliners round, and the panel coming up with suggestions for the initials B.G.I.D. Then follows discussion about the Ministry Of Defence losing laptop computers, and thoughts on Dwaine Chambers. The 24-hour-binge-joking-epidemic round features stand-up material from Andy, Greg, Frankie and Russell. Then the comedians try to figure out what is the question if the answer is 'cheese, wine and rubbish', and the show ends with unlikely lines from a superhero movie and unlikely letters for an agony aunt to receive.
