Award-winning comedian Al Murray returns to screens with a new comedy quiz show on factual channel Quest.
Al Murray’s Great British Pub Quiz sees the UK’s most passionate pub teams compete against each other for a cash prize and the prestigious golden tankard.
Joined by a special celebrity guest each episode, Murray will test the pub team’s knowledge with brain teasers, picture rounds, mystery objects and classic pub style questions on a variety of topics.
Filmed in front of a live studio audience, the studio will have all the features of a working pub, with actor Shaun Williamson (Extras) keeping score as resident barman.
Williamson is also a three-time Celebrity Pointless winner, Celebrity Mastermind winner, The Chase winner and a Celebrity Eggheads winner.
“It’s very exciting to be putting the Quest into Question with the Great British Pub Quiz” said Al Murray. “You’re going to see some of the finest quizzing minds in the country duking it out as well as the most knowledgeable barman on the planet, Shaun Williamson, do his quizzing thing.”
Produced by Avalon, Al Murray’s Great British Pub Quiz marks Quest’s first venture into comedy entertainment, joining their informative programming including news series of Scrap Kings, Outback Opal Hunters and Aussie Gold Hunters to air on Quest in 2019.
