Quite Interesting Indeed!


Series 1, Episode 1 Part 1/3 [YouTube]

Neatorama reader cuimnhe tuned us in to QI (which stands for Quite Interesting), a very funny British quiz show hosted by comedian Stephen Fry.

For us Yanks, who don't get the show here in the States, the quiz is particularly neat because points are awarded not necessarily for the correct answer, but for an interesting one (and by the same twisted logic, points are deducted for the right, but boring obvious but wrong answer).

Here are clips from the Series 1, Episode 1 Part 1, 2 and 3 [All YouTube clips]. Also check out their website: Link (with a neat "QI Fact of the Day" feature) - Thanks cuimhne!

Update 8/23/07: Here's the "unaired" pilot of QI: Link [YouTube] - Thanks Myleti!

This is why BBC America's programmers need to be fired. I would much rather watch this than reruns of Benny Hill. Why isn't it offered here?

It's really funny to see the first episode, Alan Davies's hair is so short... you should see him now!
If you want to see a funny episode search for one with Vic Reeves. He seems to know loads of really obscure facts and he's really funny too.
I think this show is probably the most nerdy thing since University Challenge... but that doesn't stop me constantly watching it on UKTV gold!

Linda Smith has been on the show a couple of times (and quite hilarious she was) The episodes are on youtube, you could probably find them with a quick search.

Great stuff! A mix of the The News Quiz and the Brain of Britain. (I only wish Linda Smith she were still alive to be on it.)

If the Beeb won't keep it going, drop the posh sets and keep this one going straight to the net. Fry, you've done it again.

Kudos!
