Word Up

What do you get when you blend out loud laughs and outrageous antics with genuine information and trivia?

Word Up is a fresh a quiz show with a difference. Airs Thursdays at 9.30pm on TV One.

Each show starts with the dramatic reveal of one key word which serves as the inspiration for a panel of much loved kiwi comics.

Our heroes are given just a few days to find themselves a side kick to help them win the quiz using just the solitary word they've been given.

They could go with a celebrity, a member of the public or an academic expert-whoever they think will give them the edge. The teams will be tested physically in the art of role play; they will be challenged mentally with rapid fire questions; there will be images to decipher, video to analyse and props to use inappropriately. There will be a winner. But most importantly, there will be LOLs.
