Richard Ayoade, Roisin Conaty, Armando Iannucci Summary
Actor and comedian Richard Ayoade hosts the satirical quiz, inviting comedian Roisin Conaty and writer and director Armando Iannucci to join regular team leaders Ian Hislop and Paul Merton as they poke fun at the week's events.
Have I Got News for You is a British television panel show produced by Hat Trick Productions for the BBC. It is based loosely on the BBC Radio 4 show The News Quiz, and has been regularly broadcast since 1990. The show has cultivated a reputation for sailing close to the wind in matters of libel with its topical and satirical remit.
Have I Got News for You is often cited as beginning the increasing domination of panel shows in British TV comedy, and remains one of the genre's key standard-bearers.
Angus Deayton was the presenter for episodes 1 to 198. He was sacked and from 199 onwards the guest presenter varies each episode.
