Insert Name Here

Series 1 - Episode 1



Sue Perkins is stepping out without comedy partner Mel Giedroyc to host a new comedy panel show. And no, we haven’t become terrible writers who forget to tell you what the show is called – Insert Name Here is, in fact, a name game. Perkins picks a name – let’s say Paul, or even Mary, for example – and two teams captained by Richard Osman and Josh Widdicombe battle it out with as much wit and wisdom about that name, and the famous people who’ve shared it. Our money's on Team Osman – he has already proven he's a font of Pointless information.


Comedy panel game in which host Sue Perkins asks two teams to decide who is the greatest of the many people who share a particular name. In the first edition, captains Richard Osman and Josh Widdicombe are joined by comedians Rob Beckett and Roisin Conaty, actor Stephen Mangan and historian Kate Williams to answer questions, while anecdotes abound and irreverent points are made, as the panellists jump between highbrow and popular culture.
