David St John is a professional comedy entertainer, with a lifetime of appearing on stages across the UK and overseas, who decided to try his luck on a TV quiz show in 1982. Having won 'The Sale of the Century', he then followed up with some 34 appearances over the next thirty years, on many top-rated shows. In July 2014, David was validated by the Guinness Book of World Records, with the most TV quiz show appearances. This book offers an insight to how to apply, audition and take part in a show, along with detailed chapters on each of his individual programmes. Read about the celebrity presenters and fellow contestants, with the experience of being in a television studio, being watched by millions of viewers as David battles against the many odds. Enjoy the amusing stories, along with many jokes that relate to each show title, with contributions from some well-known names, including Gyles Brandreth, Daphne 'Egghead' Fowler and other 'Quizlings', including this well-known TV and radio quiz host:
"Quiz shows and panel games are very popular in Britain and a book about their development and style, and those who present them, is what the public will enjoy reading."
Very best wishes.
