The Big Fat Quiz Of The Year 2019 is coming to SBS and SBS Viceland to save you from having to talk to your family for two hours. You’re welcome!

The now traditional yearly special, Big Fat Quiz of the Year 2019 will see Jimmy Carr return to celebrate the dawn of another year, by recapping the one that was.

What did Donald Trump serve a visiting University Football team at the White House? What did rapper Cardi B attempt - and fail, to trademark? Which world leader got stuck in a lift and how did Jennifer Aniston break the internet in 2019?

All of these questions and more will be answered in 2019’s biggest, fattest, quiz of the year. Question master Jimmy Carr will be joined by a panel of celebrity guests including Richard Ayoade, Noel Fielding, Roisin Conaty and Maya Jama  as they battle it out to see who recalls most about the past twelve months. 

Actor Charles Dance reads from a blockbusting autobiography, newsreader Jon Snow turns a top song into a news story, the children of Mitchell Brook Primary School uniquely interpret one of the major events of the year and a whole host of guest question-setters pop up to pose questions on all the stories we really cared about. 

Big Fat Quiz of the Year 2019 will screen on SBS Saturday 28 December at 8:30pm, and again on SBS Viceland on New Year's Eve, December 31st at 9:30pm.
