Much as the title suggests, this is a comedy quiz about the year just gone - mainly to ensure Jimmy Carr has no day off. Ever. Six questions are asked about two months of the year in turn, with answers scribbled down using electronic pens. The answers are then revealed and scored. Guests come on at various points to liven up the proceedings.

Quite good knockabout fun, even if the swearing will make our Mum blush like a beetroot. Incidentally, we thought we were anal until we found the Wikipedia entry for this show. Hooray for Internet-addicted teenagers!

In September 2012, Channel 4 broadcast three specials, with the questions in each episode focusing on a particular decade - the 1980s, the 1990s, and the first decade of the 21st Century, commonly referred to as the Noughties. A second edition of The Big Fat Quiz of the 80s was broadcast in September 2013 as part of a special weekend of 1980s themed programming. For no adequately explained reason, a week later, a second edition of The Big Fat Quiz of the 90s was also broadcast.

Guests come on at various points to liven up the proceedings.

Quite good knockabout fun, even if the swearing will make our Mum blush like a beetroot.

Specials

As part of the celebrations to mark 25 years since Channel 4 began broadcasting, The Big Fat Anniversary Quiz, featuring questions about Channel 4's programming over the previous two decades was aired in November 2007. A second Big Fat Anniversary Quiz was aired in January 2015 to mark ten years of the format, featuring questions from the previous decade.

In September 2012, Channel 4 broadcast three specials, with the questions in each episode focusing on a particular decade - the 1980s, the 1990s, and the first decade of the 21st Century, commonly referred to as the Noughties. A second edition of The Big Fat Quiz of the 80s was broadcast in September 2013 as part of a special weekend of 1980s themed programming. For no adequately explained reason, a week later, a second edition of The Big Fat Quiz of the 90s was also broadcast. The Big Fat Quiz of Everything had an ambitious remit, the entirety of human evolution; it went out opposite a Celebrity Big Brother launch in January 2016.
