Chris Moyles' Quiz Night is a British television comedy panel game show, presented by Chris Moyles.

The show was originally shown on Channel 4 at 10 p.m. on Sundays and repeated on Mondays at 11 p.m. It included three rounds in which he took on three celebrity contestants in a quiz where the prize was an item from his own home. As he was also competing (in order to keep the prize), the questions were asked by a celebrity quiz master. The series has an all-female house band present in the studio who played the title music.
