NSTAAF is a weekly podcast produced and presented by the researchers from the hit BBC comedy panel quiz show, QI - Dan Schreiber, James Harkin, Anna Ptaszynski and Andrew Hunter Murray. In each episode they share the most bizarre, extraordinary and hilarious facts they’ve found out over the last seven days.
Since its launch in March 2014, No Such Thing As A Fish has released nearly 200 episodes, racked up more than 55 million downloads, won numerous awards including two Chortle Awards, and iTunes’ Best New Podcast 2014, been named by iTunes UK as one of its top 10 most downloaded podcasts of 2016, earned a spot in the iTunes Best of 2016 list, released a special episode on vinyl and been adapted for BBC2 into two hit series of No Such Thing As The News. Their 2015/16 tour was a runaway success, selling out the 1,000-seat Lyric theatre in London’s West End and a dozen other venues across the UK and Europe.
Now the NSTAAF team are taking to the road again, this time headed for Australia. The live incarnation of the podcast will include a live recording - as well as a first half featuring the most astonishing facts the team have found from the year’s news.
Co-host Dan Schreiber says, “This is massively exciting for us. We started as four dorks sitting around a single microphone trying to make each other laugh. Things have changed a bit since we started – we now have four microphones – but it’s a thrill to know there are hundreds of thousands of other people who love the same wild and hilarious facts that we do.”
