* 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.

** Ironic, considering that Charlie Brooker is credited as a joke writer on some episodes of ''8 Out Of 10 Cats'', and has been a panelist on ''HaveIGotNewsForYou'' and ''Series/WouldILieToYou'' twice...

* 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.

* Also Australian is ''TalkinBoutYourGeneration'', hosted by [[CloudCuckooLander Shaun Micallef]] and featuring comedians Baby Boomer [[DeadpanSnarker Amanda Keller]], Generation X [[TallDarkAndSnarky Charlie Pickering]], Generation Y [[ButtMonkey Josh Thomas]], and their celebrity guests, in an attempt to determine the superior generation.

* ''ComedyWorldCup'', hosted by Creator/DavidTennant, which ran for only 7 episodes. In a twist of the normal formal, there were no regulars but four different teams that consisted of the same comedians. The teams were pitted against each other to answer questions regarding comedy history and trivia, and the winner would advance to the next level.

* American example: {{NPR}}'s ''Radio/WaitWaitDontTellMe''. Not a pure panel game, as it also features segments in which listeners play to win an actual prize, but as the prize is an answering machine greeting from newscaster Carl Kasell, these are played for laughs as much as the ones with only the panelists.

* In 2013, Creator/ComedyCentral introduced ''Series/AtMidnight'', a panel game hosted by Chris Hardwick which is themed around internet culture and social media. While its format closer resembles a competitive quiz show, it still gets all the hallmarks down.

** There are two ''Never Mind the Buzzcocks''-alikes, the SBS's musically credible ''{{Rockwiz}}'', trumped in popularity by the Adam-Hills-hosted ''SpicksAndSpecks'' which is noteworthy for the fact that of the four non-regular panelists, two are generally musicians, the other two being comedians who don't know the first thing about music. Doesn't stop them from being funny.

** ''GoodNewsWeek'' was originally a carbon copy of ''Have I Got News For You'', but its political satire didn't survive the move to commercial television. After a ten year hiatus, the rebooted show focuses more on oddball stories, celebrity news and musical guests.
