Informationen zum Autor Have I Got News For You is a long-running entertainment show starring Paul Merton and Ian Hislop, which delivers comic observations and scripted gags, from the satirical to the surreal, through the highly original mechanism of a quiz about the news. Given that Ian is an Oxford graduate who edits a topical satirical magazine and the other one is a comedian who never went to university, it's surprising how often Paul wins, said Angela Rainer. Ian and Paul have been the regular 'team captains' since the show began in 1990, and for the first twelve years, were under the watchful eye of the host Angus Deayton. Following Angus's departure, dozens of different guest hosts have taken the reins, including James Bond, Captain Kirk, Sherlock Holmes and the Prime Minister. Klappentext Whatever word you'd care to apply to 2022, no one can deny it's been eventful. Russia invaded Ukraine, Boris Johnson resigned, the Queen passed the baton to Charles after a 70-year reign, heat records were broken, food and energy bills went through the roof, fading celebrities discovered that libel laws are a great way to generate publicity, Liz Truss spent more money in her first week as PM than anyone since the war, and - as usual - most of the biggest stories broke while HIGNFY was off the air. What better way, then, to commemorate a year most of us probably want to forget than with over 1,000 quiz questions about it? There's the Missing Words Round, the Odd One Out Round, loads of rounds that we've nicked from other puzzle books, and for any insomniacs out there, there's even one on the Labour Party. Featuring plenty of gags and with questions on everything from politics to pop culture, Have I Got News For You: The Quiz of 2022 promises hours of entertainment (albeit probably by candlelight) and will serve as a timeless souvenir of a rollercoaster year. Vorwort The first quiz book in a brand-new collectible series from one of the longest-running comedy shows on television, featuring over a thousand questions on 2022's current affairs (which thankfully therefore excludes Matt Hancock's).
