Can you name three things that Alanis Morissette thought were ironic? That’s the kind of pop-culture question we can expect from tonight’s new twist on C4’s long-running celebri-quiz. It used to be an annual festive treat looking back on the year gone by, but now Jimmy Carr has widened his brief to take in “100,000 years of human history”. Firing up their laughter-burners will be panelists including Mel Giedroyc, David Mitchell, Bob Mortimer and Claudia Winkleman.


Following on from a one-off in January, Jimmy Carr returns to asks questions on art, literature, television, music, geography, politics, science and celebrity from the last 100,000 years of human history. The first edition see Jonathan Ross, Mel Giedroyc, Kristen Schaal, David Mitchell, Bob Mortimer and Claudia Winkleman battling it out to, with First Dates' Fred Sirieix popping in for a swig of champagne and Strictly Come Dancing's Karen and Kevin Clifton giving the panellists a much-needed dance lesson.
