Ask… is an original new take on primetime entertainment that sees a comedian getting to grips with a series of burning questions posed by well-known personalities and members of the public. Ranging from the sublime, “Who would win in a race, Usain Bolt or a grizzly bear?” to the ridiculous, “Can dogs blow?”. The series builds a database of answers to intriguing questions.
The host, along with two trusty side-kicks aims to provide all the answers. They are joined in their quest by a Guest Comic, a Well-Known Showbiz Personality and a very special guest ‘Authenticator’ whose job is to grease the wheels en route to enlightenment.
The journey to each answer opens a mine of comical, surprising and sometime bizarre material, often involving studio demonstrations, experiments, archive clips, internet distractions, live phone calls and visual link-ups from home and around the world.
2nd series commissioned for BBC One
