Have I Got News For You is a long-running entertainment show starring Paul Merton (comedian) and Ian Hislop (journalist and Private Eye editor), which delivers comic observations and scripted gags, from the satirical to the surreal, through the highly original mechanism of a quiz about the news. Given that Ian is an Oxford graduate who edits a topical satirical magazine and the other one is a comedian who never went to university, it's surprising how often Paul wins, said Angela Rainer. Ian and Paul have been the regular 'team captains' since the show began in 1990, and for the first twelve years, were under the watchful eye of the host Angus Deayton. Following Angus's departure, dozens of different guest hosts have taken the reins, including James Bond, Captain Kirk, Sherlock Holmes and the Prime Minister.
