Alan Davies is the regular panellist on QI. He is notorious for answering questions incorrectly and often with the klaxon answers. He is also the panellist who always receives the funniest, bizarrest and most embarassing buzzer, and consequentially always reveals it last.


Alan always recieves the silliest buzzers. Examples include:

  • Forfeit Klaxon - Alan started the show on -10 points after revealing his buzzer.
  • My Old Man's a Dustman - His buzzer in F1, with which the audience clapped along. This led to a comment by David Mitchell: "They just want a knees-up. They don't want information-based panel shows, they just want a knees-up."
