Osman started his career as an executive producer on British game programs like the satirical comedy 10 O’Clock Live and the Channel 4 comic panel game 8 Out of 10 Cats. When Pointless debuted in 2009, he and his former university classmate Alexander Armstrong served as the show’s co-presenters. He was the creative director at the TV production business Endemol UK when he pitched the show’s concept to the BBC.

He established the program where he is jokingly referred to as Armstrong’s “pointless friend”.

Osman started presenting Richard Osman’s House of Games in 2017. Every workday, four panelists participate in fun activities that test their general knowledge.  In 2020, Osman made the announcement that he was quitting Pointless on April 8, 2022, after 1,300 episodes spanning 30 series.
