"For the English tenor, see John Mitchinson (tenor).""For the Bishop, see John Mitchinson (bishop)."

John Mitchinson is the head of research for the British television panel game "QI", and co-author of "The Book of General Ignorance" with "QI's" creator John Lloyd. He is also the managing director of Quite Interesting Limited.

Mitchinson and Lloyd, often referred to as "The Two Johns" are seen as the main controllers of "QI", as they do most of the research of the show. Mitchinson also acted as an associate producer for the first series. However, he is just a researcher, and is mentioned in the shows credits as a "Question Wrangler".

Before working on "QI", Mitchinson worked as the marketing manager of Waterstone's. As a result, he is also in charge of the "QI" website's online book shop.
