Who is the narrator of The Chasers Road Trip?
Comedian and TV presenter Rob Brydon narrates the series.
In the first episode he was heard calmly talking about scenes where Mark Labbett’s driving was, quite frankly, worrying.
We see Mark struggle to get his huge brain to drive a huge van in the US.
In one scene, Mark gets caught in a kind of pickle while maneuvering himself, Anna and Shaun through town.
Rob’s voice-over says, “While it may seem a simple task, driving is one of the most complex challenges your brain can handle.”
Mark then slams into a curb and yells: “What on earth was that ?!”
Rob continues calmly, “The brain processes 11 million pieces of information per second, balancing coordination and spatial awareness to create a seamless journey.
“Well, that’s the theory anyway …”
It’s Rob’s cheeky side comments, tongue-in-cheek, that help make the series as compelling as it is.
What is the show about?

How to check your own IQ
A person’s IQ can be calculated through an intelligence test.
The average IQ is by definition 100.
If you get a score above 100, you have done better than the average person.
Generally, IQ tests are done one at a time with a trained psychologist.

The three-part series follows the “three titans of trivia” on their journey around the world to compete with child geniuses, great apes and the latest AI and robot technology.
