They Think It's All Over - Netflix

They Think It's All Over is a British comedy panel game with a sporting theme.

The show's name is taken from Kenneth Wolstenholme's famous 1966 World Cup commentary quotation, "they think it's all over...it is now!" and the show used the phrase to sign off each episode. In 2006 the show was axed after 11 years on-air.

Lee Hurst (born 16 October 1962) is an English comedian. Hurst was a regular panellist on the comedy sports quiz They Think It's All Over from 1995 to 1998. He is a fervent supporter of Brexit and an outspoken critic of Islam. In 2003, he was considering standing as a candidate in the 2004 London mayoral election. One of the factors behind his decision was a proposed redevelopment, which would have seen his comedy club demolished.

Hurst got a break when he became the warm-up act for Have I Got News for You: producer Harry Thompson gave Hurst the opportunity to appear on the show as a guest. Hurst first became known to television viewers as a regular team member on the BBC Two comedy sports quiz They Think It's All Over. He appeared alongside David Gower in 42 episodes over the first six series, from the first episode on 14 September 1995 until 1998. He reduced his TV appearances to allow more time for running his comedy club, Lee Hurst's Backyard Comedy Club. He has returned for two appearances as a guest on They Think It's All Over towards the end of its run for series 17 in 2004, and for the 2011 Comic Relief 24 Hour Panel People.
