Live at the Apollo

Each episode features a different host with the likes of Sarah Millican, Jason Manford, Frankie Boyle, Jon Richardson, Hal Cruttenden and Danny Bhoy, who perform a special set before introducing some of the finest comedians on today´s circuit.
Joining them on stage is talent in the fine forms of Joe Lycett, Doc Brown, Sara Pascoe, Justin Moorhouse and Miles Jupp among others.
Hosted by Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman, Pointless is a game show in which teams of two contestants have to score as few points as possible by finding obscure but correct answers to questions.
Before the show, each question has already been posed to 100 people who have 100 seconds to give as many correct answers as they can think of.
The less commonly known answers are the ones the contestants are looking for as they are worth the least points, whereas incorrect answers are awarded the full 100 points. An eponymous "Pointless" answer is one which none of the 100 people gave.
The couple that makes it through to the third and final round has the chance to win the jackpot of £1 000, which rolls over each episode if the finalists don’t find a pointless answer.
Catch Pointless starting in Tuesday, 1 September at 18:00.
