Have I Got News For You

Based on the week's news, the series is fronted by guest hosts and features two regular team captains, Paul Merton and Ian Hislop.

Each week the show invites two guests to cast a jaundiced eye over the week's news, resulting in a fast flow of anarchic, spontaneous and hugely entertaining wit and humour.

Guests typically represent the world of politics, comedy, show-business and journalism, and are often themselves particularly newsworthy participants. The final touches of 'Have I Got News For You' are put together only hours before recording, allowing guests to comment on the late-breaking news stories of the day.

Series 60 & 61. Shows recorded during lockdown are streamed live to 200 virtual audience members who watch in their homes. The reactions of the virtual audience recorded on the night are mixed with audience reactions from shows previously recorded.
