In 2017, this comedy news roundup has remained - in the face of ever more bewildering world events - the sanest response on television. It is sharp and righteous, but also humble and inclusive, always punching up, never falling into the trap of seeming to be part of the establishment. For its festive farewell, Adam Hills, Alex Brooker and Josh Widdicombe welcome guests including the very funny Stephen Merchant.
