29 Minutes of Fame is a British satirical celebrity quiz series which aired on BBC One on Fridays in early 2005. The show was presented by comedian Bob Mortimer. The show's two team captains were Jo Brand and Alistair McGowan, they were also joined by a regular panelist Sean Lock.


The format of the show was similar to another BBC quiz program, Have I Got News for You, but without the politics. Each week three celebrities joined the regular cast on the two panels. The questions were based around comical elements of other celebrity figures of the time.
