Never Mind The Buzzcocks

Never Mind The Buzzcocks is a surreal comedy panel game show with a pop and rock music theme produced for the BBC, and usually aired on BBC TWO. The title is a play on the title of the Sex Pistols Never Mind The Bollocks album and the band The Buzzcocks. In the show celebrities, usually comedians and musicians, are given tasks such as guessing what song their team mates are attempting to recreate (with no instruments or props) and guessing which of three implausible stories about a popular musician are true. The show has been running since 1996, presented by Mark Lamarr and featuring regular team captains Phill Jupitus, Sean Hughes (1996-2002) and Bill Bailey (2002-).
