"Welcome to the only BBC Radio 4 panel show featuring exclusively people of colour! But how in an age of entertainment tokenism has this been made possible? This is audio. No-one knows we're not white."

Desiree Burch hosts BAMESHOW, a new format that parodies traditional game shows that have too often overlooked comics of colour. Poking fun at tokenism, unconscious bias and just plain old racism, Desiree and the cast go bravely (and mischievously) where others fear to tread.
