This thesis studies the humour of Croatian National Television’s host in three game shows: Kviskoteka, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? and The Weakest Link. Taxonomy for the analysis of humour in the mentioned shows has been based on the previous research of the topic. The thesis analyses the type of the host’s verbal humour in each game show, together with the part of the game show in which host makes humorous comments, and the type of humour to which the audience (and sometimes the contestant) reacts with spontaneous laughter. The results show different dominant types of humour in each of the game shows, the parts of the game show in which the humorous remarks are made and the funniest parts of each game show based on the audience reaction. In the end, the methodological approach is carried out with the potential hosts of the three game shows, based on the way and appropriate time for the humour realisation in each of the three analysed game shows.
