I am John Lloyd, TV and Radio Producer (Blackadder, Spitting Image, QI etc...). AMA.
Hello, I am John Lloyd, the British TV and Radio producer behind Blackadder, Spitting Image, Not The Nine O'Clock News, The News Quiz, The Museum of Curiosity and QI. I am here with a couple of QI Elves to answer any questions.
Over the summer, aged 61, I made my stand-up debut at the Edinburgh Fringe performing my show Liff of QI to promote Afterliff, the new dictionary of things there should be words for but aren’t – sequel to The Meaning of Liff which I wrote with Douglas Adams in 1983.
The most recent QI book is 1,339 Facts to Make Your Jaw Drop
edit: Thanks for all the questions and incredibly nice comments. If you have any more 'technical' questions about QI, /u/TheQIElves will be back to answer anything else you have. I'm keeping the question about the chemical composition of a carrot to myself.
