Never Mind the Buzzcocks (UK)

Never Mind the Buzzcocks (UK)



Never Mind the Buzzcocks was the quiz show where musicians tried to be funny and comedians tried to be musical. Two teams of celebrities answered questions about pop music, guess songs after hearing their teammates sing the intros, and tried to find the former popstar hidden in a lineup of look-alikes.

Guests on the show were frequently the targets for pointed jokes about their careers or public personas. Both longtime hosts Mark Lamarr and Simon Amstell fostered an atmosphere of playful hostility (although Amstell was criticized for taking this too far). After the show moved to a format with a new guest host every week, much of the mocking came in the form of the host's jokes at his own expense.
