Show Synopsis

QI is the world’s most impossible quiz.

On the face of it, QI (short for Quite Interesting) is a TV comedy panel game like any other. It has a chairperson and four contestants, who are asked questions and get points for their answers. But there the resemblance ends.

The questions on QI are so difficult that the panellists almost never get one right. So the chairperson only gives points for interesting answers, regardless of whether they are correct, or even relevant.
