Alan Davies had no expectations for 'QI' being successful.
The comedian is a regular panelist on the comedy quiz show - which is hosted by Stephen Fry - and admits he is often bemused as to why it is a hit.
He said: "I don't think any of us had any expectations for it. In effect, it's a bunch of people talking about very obscure stuff,
all presided over by a ridiculously clever man who makes fun of us ... but it seems to work."
Alan loves working on the show because it makes him laugh so much, but he and the rest of the panelists once forced filming to be stopped because they couldn't compose themselves.
Speaking to the new issue of Reader's Digest magazine - which is released next week - he said: "My favourite shows are the ones where I end up laughing even more than the audience. There was one where Julian Clary was telling a story about needing the loo when he met the queen that had
me in stitches. At one point, it got so bad that we had to stop the cameras!"
