I’m going to be doing another game show on Saturday! But this one is a bit different…

Some of you may have heard of a German game show that I have been part of a UK commentary team for called “Schlag Den Raab”, meaning “Beat the Raab” (Stefan Raab is a German entertainer). It’s a show that takes place 6 times a year, is live, and lasts about 6 hours with millions of euros of prize money up for grabs. When it takes place, myself and three other game show experts provide a UK commentary for it over YouTube.

Anyway, David Bodycombe is organising “Beat The Brig”, where Brig is one of the other commentators, and the challenger contestant is… ME! It is going to take place this SATURDAY from 8pm, and will consist of 15 head to head games of me vs. Brig. It will be broadcast on YouTube, and I hope that you will be able to watch it!

As a sense of how amazing this is going to be, both Brig and myself have been mailed a parcel of props for the evening, which we can’t open until instructed on the night. David Bodycombe is a Big Cheese of the game show world, he has been the main Question Editor for Only Connect and has devised challenges for The Mole and The Crystal Maze, amongst other works. So this is a big deal.

I hope you’re able to watch from 8PM, THIS SATURDAY. It is likely (but not certain) that it will remain on YouTube afterwards. But trust me, you’re going to want to watch this!

All the details, including the YouTube link (which will appear on the day), are at . I hope you can join me on the night!
