It seems we're living in an interesting time seeing stand-up comedians expand their arsenal as game show hosts. Some recent tv shows in this space include Jay Pharoah hosting The Quiz with Balls & David Spade hosting Snake Oil.

And now we have the Emmy & Grammy winning comedian Patton Oswalt joining the ranks of comedians hosting game shows with his newly announced gig as the host of The 1% Club.

What to know about Patton Oswalt's "The 1% Club."

Produced by BBC Studios, this internationally renowned show has had major ratings success in Europe and has expanded its global rise with previous launches in Netherlands, Australia, Germany, France, Israel, Spain and Turkey. Now expanding in the US in partnership with Prime Video & FOX (who holds the exclusive broadcast debut).

The 1% Club is a unique, compelling and funny entertainment show that tests the nation’s intelligence, based on a scientific survey, a chance to test how your brain works through a series of questions that all have a right answer but can also lead to a series of entertaining wrong answers along the way. Whether you’re a contestant vying for the cash prize or a viewer playing with your friends and family on the app, answer enough questions correctly, and you could earn yourself a place in the 1% Club: an elite group of people who can honestly say they’ve outwitted 99% of the population.

“Patton exudes all attributes of an iconic host, and we are thrilled he has joined us for the first ever game show on Prime Video,” says Lauren Anderson, head of AVOD Originals, unscripted and targeted programming, Amazon MGM Studios. “Patton’s distinct combination of warmth and wit made him the ideal person to bring this addictive format to life for North American Prime Video customers and Fox’s linear audience. In addition to our creative passion for the series, The 1% Club marks a strategic business growth opportunity, expanding our ad-friendly content portfolio and allowing us to explore unique dual premiere strategies. Thanks to FOX, BBC Studios, Patton, Andy, and Dean for being such great partners as we break new ground.”

“As a proud member of the 90%, it’s a privilege to host this show,” says Oswalt.
