Synopsis

Comedians, all familiar faces to the Dave audience, are invited in by Josh Widdicombe. Co-host James Acaster puts forward an unlikely situation. The comedian's task is to engage in flights of fantasy and improvise their way into a sensible answer.

In the first half of the show, two of the panel fly solo with answers to the idea. The other two do battle against each other. There's a pairs round, where the couples confer on their answer, and James Acaster lives out the hypothetical in real life. The final round features a guest celebrity, who has been asked about certain scenarios, and given an answer: the panel's task is to match them.

James and Josh.

How is this a game? James awards points on a completely arbitrary basis, based on his feelings about the answer, and a winning team is declared.

Hypothetical divided opinion: for every viewer who loved it, there was another who found it dull.
