Publisher's Summary

Sandi Toksvig chairs four sparkling episodes of the ever-popular topical comedy show The News Quiz, 'the finest topical comedy panel game known to radio', has been providing headlines and punchlines since it first aired in 1977.

In these four episodes, long-standing panellists including Jeremy Hardy, Fred MacAulay, Mark Steel and David Mitchell take a wry look at the news in all its larger-than-life glory.

With guest players including Bob Mills, Sarah Pascoe, Samira Ahmed, Justin Moorhouse, Elis James and Lucy Porter, they tackle issues as diverse as Scottish Independence, commuter train standards, Russian activities in Crimea, dietary health scares, passport delays and black cab strikes.

Also included is a special Sport Relief interlude in which the players answer questions whilst clocking up miles on an exercise bike - with a special guest appearance by Duncan Goodhew!

Sandi Toksvig chairs proceedings, while Neil Sleat, Kathy Clugston and Diana Speed read a selection of humorous cuttings.

    "100% Fun (& Educational)"

    I'm a fan of the BBC's Comedy News Quiz and was very happy to know that it was available on Audible.

    I think anyone who appreciates informative stand-up comedians from the UK will enjoy this compilation.

    I only wish there were more episodes available in this "book"; but repeated listenings let me rediscover great jokes & performances.

    Even though the subject is current events, I can listen to this over and over again.
