This series brings corruption, greed and hypocrisy to the fore and drags it to the court of public opinion.

The Revolution Will Be Televised's bite-sized comedy hits - from fictionalised characters to ballsy stunt-led sketches - have already been grabbing the headlines. George Osborne being handed that GCSE maths book? Cheryl Cole 'storming out' of a BBC TV interview? What the hell has been going on?

In the great tradition of mischief-makers like Michael Moore, Mark Thomas and Dom Joly, Heydon Prowse and Jolyon Rubinstein bash a variety of arrogant, puffed-up people over the head with an inflated pig's bladder, on behalf of anyone who has stared open-mouthed at the arrogance, hypocrisy, corruption and greed of the various politicians, avaricious multinationals and tax-shy billionaires who have been taking the piss out of the British public for years. Now it's their turn to be outraged, deceived, inconvenienced and humiliated.

Series 1's bite-sized comedy hits - from fictionalised characters to ballsy stunt-led sketches - grabbed the headlines. In Series 2, their targets are every bit as varied and every bit as flummoxed by the boys' sheer chutzpah. The EDL, David Cameron, Google, the BBC, George Clooney, Cara Delevingne, Nike, Bell Pottinger, the Saudi Embassy, betting shops, Ed Miliband, Katie Price, Nigel Farage, the G8 Summit, Amazon, Ryan Air, GCHQ, the International Criminal Court (ICC), Network Rail, Boris Johnson and much, much more... all are confronted in a very public arena often with surprising results.
