There’s No Such Thing As A Fish to tour the UK in 2018

The minds behind QI kick off their tour on the 1 March 2018.

No Such Thing As A Fish, a podcast developed by the researchers behind the long-running BBC comedy quiz QI, will be taking their show on the road in the spring of 2018.

Dan Schreiber, Andrew Hunter Murray, Anna Ptaszynski and James Harkin have become household names in themselves since branching out from behind the scenes on the TV show, originally hosted by Stephen Fry who handed over to current host Sandi Toksvig in 2016.

No Such Thing As A Fish sees the foursome serve up their pick of the most bizarre, extraordinary, and hilarious facts known to man.

The award winning podcast celebrates 1.2 million downloads a week, having recently been transformed into the spin-off BBC Two TV series, No Such Thing As The News.

The title of the show comes from an episode in season eight of QI, known as “Series H”, where the panelists (including permanent fixture Alan Davies) were told of biologist Stephen Jay Gould who concluded after much research that there was indeed no such thing as a fish.

Each episode of the podcast sees a presenter take it in turn to offer their favourite fact they have discovered that week.

The live show will kick off in Brighton on the 1 March 2018, and run through until the 29 March 2018 at Liverpool’s Philharmonic Hall.
