A fast-turnaround topical comedy that puts a subversive twist on the week's events.

The show comes from writers/producers Mother's Best Child. In a world where nothing is shocking, this is The News gone wrong with bells on, where footage is mashed and the reports are satirical sketches featuring a raft of great new comic voices
