* A long-running British panel show is ''Series/NeverMindTheBuzzcocks'', which is based around music and generally features pop and rock stars as well as comedians. After most of the original cast started having other commitments, the show bounced back with a very successful format of rotating guest hosts and temporary team captains. Phill Jupitus has appeared in every episode but one, making him pretty much the face of the show. The show is currently hosted by Rhod Gilbert, and the other team captain is [[TheMightyBoosh Noel Fielding]].

The celebrity contestants are usually paid an appearance fee, but there is rarely a prize as an incentive to win, although the contestants may still be highly competitive. [[PlayedForLaughs The focus is on comedy]]; ThePointsMeanNothing, and some shows feature a joke prize that is mundane (''HaveIGotNewsForYou''), bizarre (''Series/ShootingStars''), or non-existent (''Radio/ImSorryIHaventAClue'').

* Another mainstay of British panel games is ''[[Series/HaveIGotNewsForYou Have I Got News For You]]'', a political and satirical panel game that generally attracts politicians, journalists, and businessmen as its panelists, as well as more politically-minded comedians.

* ''Radio/TheNewsQuiz'', something of a radio counterpart to ''HaveIGotNewsForYou'' (which it predates by thirteen years). In its early years, it was a relatively straight panel game about the week's news, with the panel largely comprising journalists and politicians, but since around the mid-1990s there has been more emphasis on comedy.

* The one that is most familiar to American viewers is ''WhoseLineIsItAnyway'', which had four comedians who would perform improv comedy to win points from host Clive Anderson (later replaced by Drew Carey for the somewhat-louder American version).

** There have been two ''Never Mind the Buzzcocks''-alikes. {{SBS}}'s ''{{Rockwiz}}'' is considered the more musically credible; it has the feel of a stage show that just happens to be on TV, being filmed in an actual pub and with the scores displayed on cardboard placards. It is trumped in popularity by [[TheABC ABC]]'s ''SpicksAndSpecks'', which is closer to ''Buzzcocks'' in format but (being hosted by Adam Hills) with a more positive attitude and less likely to go OffTheRails.
