Monday 13th November
Don't Say It, Bring It! is the most fun, outrageous game show ever recorded on the unforgiving streets of Britain. Excitement, intrigue, tension, adventure and the chance to win big cash prizes, up to £1000. Presenter, quiz host and agent-provocateur Jason Byrne drums up contestants in each new town the series visits. Played in real time on the street; contestants are given three minutes to provide a non-verbal answer to a simple quiz question. The answers are all objects, people and actions which can be sourced from the immediate environment but only if the contestant has the wit, charm and tenacity to acquire it. In short; you don't SAY the answer... you BRING IT!
It's so simple, it's impossible.
In tonight's episodes, Jason Byrne takes his game show to Belfast, where friends Aoife and Maeve are ready to wipe the floor with the game to win cash. Will a brave trio from Edinburgh coerce locals to hand over some precious items, including hand cream and a sock? And in Whitby, Tracy and Peter twerk hard for the money and face a tricky decision when to call it a day.
Next up, Jason continues his shenanigans in Belfast, where a local chef and amateur dancer is tasked to find a waitress, a watch and an elusive baby garment; running against the clock and facing a tough decision about when to call it a day... In Bristol, a smart, gentleman's accessory leads to a race against time and some creative problem-solving. Then a multi-talented Geordie newbie hunts for a tear-jerking vegetable in Newcastle. And in Glasgow; an operatic prodigy calls upon the city's helpful, well-dressed locals to achieve his cash-ambition.
Don't Say It, Bring It! starts tonight at 7pm on Dave and is double billed, Monday to Friday for two weeks.

Dave's had a haircut and shave in recent years as it grows from awkward teenager to fully-fledged commissioner of new and original shows. And it's not just comedy these days but entertainment and even some knock-out live sport. Hit UKTV Original commissions include Taskmaster, Dave Gorman Modern Life is Goodish, Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled, Dara O Briain's Go 8 Bit and Crackanory, all laden with the biggest names in British comedy. Dave enjoyed critical success with two series of Hoff the Record, a mockumentary ensemble comedy led by the living legend David Hasselhoff.
As well as home-grown delights Dave also goes stateside, cherry-picking cult US Shows including the sharp-witted and sharp-suited Suits and much-loved Parks and Recreation along with Emmy-nominated The Last Man on Earth. This all contributed to Dave's award win at the 2016 Broadcast Digital Awards for Best Entertainment Channel.
