No Such Thing As A Fish, the award-winning podcast from the team behind QI, is set to host a live-streamed one-off special in aid of Comic Relief from 12th to 13th March 2021.
“The QI team has really out done themselves with this brilliant idea – 35 guests to mark 35 years of Comic Relief is an extraordinary feat to pull off. I’m nervous to be part of such a clever line-up and will spend the next week dusting off my Comic Relief trivia.” – Richard Curtis
To mark Comic Relief’s 35th year, the No Such Thing As A Fish team will be hosting 35 guests for 35 minutes each – a whopping 1,225 minutes of live broadcast, and over 20 hours of non-stop fun-fact chit-chat.
The guest list includes Michael Palin, Sally Phillips, Tim Minchin, Rhys Darby, Shappi Khorsandi, John Lloyd, Richard Osman, Sue Perkins, Ian Hislop, Eddie Izzard, Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock, Gemma Whelan, Stephen Fry, and Comic Relief co-founder, Richard Curtis.
“It’s going to be a lot of fun and I hope will help raise lots of money for Red Nose Day along the way. I want to say a huge thanks to the QI team for their herculean efforts in bringing us all 20 hours of non-stop fund-raising entertainment. They have some amazing guests, and I am sure a ridiculous amount of interesting facts to enjoy from home.” – Richard Curtis
No Such Thing As A Fish is one of the world’s most listened to podcasts, with over 300 million listens and an average of 1 million listeners per week.
Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day is back on Friday 19 March 2021.
