Show Summary
Mock The Week and The Apprentice: You’re Fired star Dara O Briain goes on a journey into the realms of pure logic in this brand new and exclusive series.

The brainbox Irish comedian and broadcaster studied maths and theoretical physics at University College, Dublin and now he’s on a mission to use all his knowledge and intuition to solve some very tasty real-world brainteasers and conundrums. But instead of pure guesswork, he uses maths, physics, chemistry, logic and all those hidden mechanics of the world we don’t see or are too distracted by football to notice to solve his Dave-like problems.

Each episode in this eight-parter is themed and Dara, along with comedy guests like Alex Horne, Simon Evans and Jason Byrne, dissect each conundrum and find out guaranteed ways to solve them. Want to know how best to save a drowning man? Dara works out the optimum angle to jump into the river and pull them to safety. Want to deduce which door to pass through if the choices are one leading to an exit and one leading to certain death, with each door guard blatantly lying about the contents of each room? Dara finds an answer. Want to find out the most slices you can get out of a pizza if you’re only allowed to cut it three times? Dara to the rescue!

How do you solve a problem like Dara? He’s got an answer for that too.
