Argumental with Marcus Brigstocke and John Sergeant
The likes of Jimmy Carr, Phill Jupitus, Dara O'Briain and Johnny Vegas join team captains Rufus Hound and Marcus Brigstocke and host John Sergeant for a brand new and exclusive panel show that celebrates the art of the argument.
In each episode, John oversees a lively cauldron of debate as guests and team captains are asked to argue against received wisdom, as well as defend comments that any self-respecting person would find just pain wrong.
In the classic debate round, teams will be animatedly discussing such pearls of wisdom as: London should not host the Olympics in 2012; the credit crunch is no bad thing; recycling is a waste of time; and the Royal Family serve no purpose. The teams will then move on to a visual aids round and alternative 'flip-flop' round, where contestants have to argue against themselves, changing their argument around every time the bell sounds.
With plenty of lively debate, some quick thinking and some sneaky point scoring, Argumental takes all the most topical and contentious issues of the day and rips them to shreds.
