Gash is the new nightly political comedy show for Channel 4, presented by Armando Iannucci (Friday Night Armistice, writer/producer of I'm Alan Partridge and The Day Today), with guests from the world of comedy, news and the media being funny about everything that's ever happened today, such as the Iraq war.

Gash - editor's slang for any bits of cut-up tape - will try and compress twenty-four hours of the day's events into twenty-four minutes of talk, jokes, bits, VT footage, more jokes, blindingly well-informed opinion, jokes, utter lack of balance, jokes and Armando Iannucci. One or more of these things could happen at the same time.
