Publisher's Summary

David Mitchell hosts the hilarious panel show which turns honest men into lying cheats. In this devious and delightfully funny competition, four comedians have the audacity to lie through their teeth for victory.

They compete against each other with lies, untruths and dishonesty. Tall tales, white lies, blatant bluffs and misdirection rule. Can they smuggle the truth past each other or will they be caught in the act of lying?

Listen in, play along and try to separate fact from fiction in the ultimate lying game.

Love it!

Given that I watch "wilty" it's probably lacking only one thing..... Video! Still entertaining, and great for a laugh.

Not a single bad episode

Wish they had more. 22 seasons of six episodes isn’t enough. I’m getting better at spotting the truths but the lies are why it’s so funny.

These Are A Real Treasure!

This is the third series of these that I have listened too and it's great to see that there are so many more available, especially as the ones from Series 14 onwards are free too. They have high-quality panels and luckily for me they have people like Graeme Garden, Jack Dee and Henning Wehn, all of whom I really like, on regularly. It's light-hearted, mostly, though not entirely, family friendly, episodes are easy to dip into and out of between the panellists' lectures and most of all it's bloody funny!

A Down Time Treat

A perfect opportunity to kick off your shoes, sit back and be entertained by British comedians. It's Friday night TV for your ears at your finger tips. Ideal for time out, commutes and distraction from high street crowds.

This is my all time favourite comedy show on the radio...

It is dependent on the comedic prowess and intellectual power of the invited guest panelists. Fortunately they are all usually on top form as star comedy performers and they do appear to really enjoy the experience and entertainment too. I enjoy listening to them all, and best of all I am in a state of near comedic bliss with the host David Mitchell and his sharp wit and clever observations. Deep joy, gratitude and appreciation from me. PS I am still trying to collect the complete Series from 1 to +20...

Excellent BBC Radio comedy quiz from 2018

David Mitchell excels as quizmaster for this very funny quiz featuring British comedians. The very British orientation both in content and humour had me laughing out loud.
