After 17 years in the making, Mock The Week has been axed

After 17 years in the running, the service has been canceled.

The much-loved comedy panel show, which has over 200 episodes and first appeared in 2005, will feature 21 episodes.

Dara O Briain, a comedian and presenter, was the long-term host of the show, which combined stand-up skills and launched a variety of comedy roles such as Michael McIntyre, Sarah Millican, John Bishop, Kevin Bridges, and others.

Regular panellists Hugh Dennis, Russell Howard, Rory Bremner, Frankie Boyle, and Chris Addison, along with guest actors, helped Dara understand how to deal with current affairs and world events.

"That''s it, folks, the UK has finally died." Global pandemics were becoming more crazier and crazier, but Europe''s crisis was now over, and new short-term prime ministers were all ablaze. It''s impossible to keep the news going.

"We are closing the doors on Dara and Hugh''s Academy for Baby Comedians, and we can''t be more wacky than the news was.

"Most of our guests have expressed their gratitude over the years, many of whom persevered in delivering massive successes of their own, never writing or calling. It was a pleasure."

"The next series of will be the last, we are really pleased of the show," the BBC said, but after 21 episodes, we have taken the difficult decision in order to accommodate new shows.

"We would like to thank Angst Productions, host Dara O Briain, panellist Hugh Dennis, and all of the guest comedians involved in the 21 series."

James Acaster, Jo Brand, Greg Davies, David Mitchell, Diane Morgan, Sue Perkins, Sandi Toksvig, and Romesh Ranganathan have all appeared on the show over the years.

This autumn, the final episodes of BBC Two and BBC iPlayer will air.
