You may be sick of Zoom quizzes, but a much funnier version is on the telly tonight in the form of The Big Fat Quiz of Everything 2021.
Following The Big Fat Quiz of the Year 2020 which aired on Boxing Day, Jimmy Carr is back to quiz a panel of celebrities on… well, everything.
No topic is off limits as over two hours, Jimmy will test the celebs’ general knowledge before crowning one of three teams champions.
When is the Big Fat Quiz of Everything on?
The show airs at 9pm on Thursday January 7, on Channel 4.
If you miss it, it will be available later on All4.
Who is on the Big Fat Quiz of Everything?
The Big Fat Quiz always attracts a stellar line-up, and this 2021 edition is no different as comedians and stars team up to put their heads together.
Asides from Oti, the other panellists are pros – Roisin appeared on the Big Fat Quiz in 2017 and 2019, while her teammate Rob Beckett tried his hand at the Big Fat Quiz of Everything in 2016.
Katherine Ryan was in both editions in 2017 and the Everything special in 2019, wile her teammate Nish Kumar was quizzed on everything in 2018 and appeared on the Big Fat Quiz of the Decade last January.
Rob Brydon, who is paired with Oti, was one of the original Big Fat Quiz stars, starring on the show in every series between 2004 and 2007 and returning in 2009 and 2015.
Of course, there’ll be pre-taped segments from Jon Snow and Charles Dance to give hints for some of the questions, and the students of Mitchell Brook Primary School will be acting out major events.
What questions will the teams be asked?
While the stars of the 2020 quiz were asked about the weird and not-so-wonderful events of the year, the remit of the Big Fat Quiz of Everything is much broader.
Channel 4 teased that questions will be on everything from Only Fools and Horses to Johnny Cash, with a statement reading: ‘What was a ‘bag o’mystery’ in Victorian slang? What could you buy down Del Boy’s Hooky Street? Who did Johnny Cash have a fight with in 1981? And what American attraction once went by the name ‘Rebel Railroad’? All of these questions and more will be answered in the biggest quiz of them all.’
The Big Fat Quiz of Everything is on at 9pm on Channel 4.
