I'm a full time skeptic and i hate being decieved. If there's something i hate a lot, it's being fooled. It may take the fun out of some things, but i cant help it
I shall look into that when I'm not dying of tiredness

I remember reading somewhere that the comedians on Mock the Week are told the topics that they are meant to make jokes about beforehand, despite the fact that they're not suppose to know and it's meant to be spontaneous.

They're also supposed to, you know, watch and read the news. Obviously that's to be expected. A show like that isn't so much about improv as it is about witticism. A lot of people draw from their own standup routines and things during certain parts of the show. I love Russell Howard but almost everything that comes out of his mouth comes from his standup or his show. Milton Jones's one liners are often repeats as well but they're damn funny so who cares? At least they're their own jokes and not things written by writers for the show or something.

Sometimes it just feels like something has been scripted. It doesnt feel like.. Say, Whose Line. I only watch QI for interesting tidbits of information

I understand. I feel that way too... but I think part of what you need to take into account is that a lot of people are comedians and are quite witty. And then they also get people who are experts on certain topics like Brian Cox... But you know what, I could be wrong. I am easily fooled. I just really want it to be genuine and brilliant because I really like most of the panelists and Stephen and Alan.
If you like Whose Line you should watch Mock the Week. It's brilliant.
