About the Show
Big Fat Quiz of the Year is designed to work like a pub quiz – every panel is presented with a lot of questions about the year and they have to write down their answers with the results being revealed at the end of the year.
Since its release back in 2004, there has been one every year as well as numerous spin offs of the actual show. It has also been hosted by Jimmy Carr from the start.
Every show the panelists are different and they come up with their team like, just like you would in a pub quiz. Previous guests on the show have been Simon Pegg, Jonathan Ross, Russell Brand, David Mitchell, Alan Carr, Richard Ayoade and Noel Felding just to name a few.
