Question Team sets out to re-write the panel show rule book by making its comic players set the questions.
Produced by Interstellar, the first series of Question Team was one of the top-performing commissions on Dave in 2021, and each episode sees three comedians join the Question Team. But they’re not there to just answer the questions; they are the self-quizzing collective.
Each guest must bring a unique round of questions, inspired by their own interests, for Richard Ayoade and the others to play. The sole stipulation is that their questions have proper answers, otherwise what goes down during their game is entirely up to them.
Guests in series one saw the likes of James Acaster, Bob Mortimer, Nish Kumar, Kerry Godliman and Desiree Burch come up with their unique rounds.
Speaking about the return of Question Team, Richard Ayoade said "I am beyond thrilled to be providing a quote pantomiming genuine excitement w/r/t whatever I’m meant to be promoting."
To which Creative Director at Interstellar, Jamie Ormerod added "We’re thrilled to head back into the studio for more trivia-based nonsense with Richard Ayoade and eight new Question Teams, each equipped with original games for this ever-changing format. Series one featured comedians jumping out of planes, high stakes lawn bowls and identifying crisps from the sound of their crunch. Series two promises rounds that go higher, with more jeopardy and even more crunch."
UKTV's Head of Comedy Entertainment, Iain Coyle, who commissioned the show said "What’s great about this show, is that you’ve literally no idea what is going to be in it, week to week, as every round is unique. It’s quite something to pull off for the producers and Richard is an extraordinary host for an extraordinary show."
To which Channel Director for Dave, Cherie Cunningham added "We love this show and seeing what unusual interests and inventive games the guests can bring to their rounds. It’s wonderfully silly and full of fun which is pretty infectious. The response from Dave viewers for series one was phenomenal, and we can’t wait to give them more later this year."
Question Team will return later this year on Dave
