Richard Ayoade pilots new game show

Players write the questions in Who's Asking?

Richard Ayoade is piloting a new comedy game show in which the players write the questions.

The show is being developed under the title Who’s Asking? – although that may change as Chortle understands that a separate game show with that title, based on an Israeli format, is also being piloted.

It has not been revealed which broadcasters, if any, the projects are being developed for.

Crystal Maze host Ayoade is taping his pilot in front of an audience at the Lyric Hammersmith in West London on March 19. Free audience tickets are available here.

Producers say: ‘Join Richard as he invites three comedians to take part in a quiz like no other. On Who’s Asking? it’s up to the players to write the questions. Expect some healthy competition, inventive rounds and plenty of laughs.’

In the separate Israeli format of the same name, contestants must pick a questioner from three members of the public shown to them on stage. Formatzone has the UK rights to this show and it's not connected to the Ayoade pilot, other than sharing a title.
