Love it !

Hilarious panel show with loads of brillant panellists. And it’s really fun going to a live recording too so that you can be part of the “hive mind”

Great Show :)

I love Global Pillage! What a fantastic concept and I love the highlighting that is done of some less well-known comedians who should should be heard more of. I now look out for people that I first heard of in Series One.

I’ll be going to my fifth live recording in December - al aye fantastic!

Wonderful panel show

I love a good panel show and it's great to hear one where women are allowed to outnumber men more than once a series. Global Pillage is informative and amusing, and like all good panel shows, occasionally devolves into flagrant innuendo.
I always enjoyed the QI episodes where the audience got to play, Global Pillage formalises this approach by having the audience make up a third team - The Hive Mind.
The questions are all based on customs and beliefs around the world and are delivered in a humorous but not disrespectful way. A lot of the panellists are from different countries and backgrounds which adds to the international theme especially in the Teams Round where the teams each ask the other teams a question specific to their own backgrounds.
