With the onset of Brexit, Trump and indeed the dab, we are in the midst of the most unprecedented political and world events in recent history.

Luckily, comedian Nish Kumar is on hand with The Mash Report - a lightning-quick, satirical and surreal news show that will keep audiences informed on everything that has happened - or not happened - that week. All with the writers from The Daily Mash.

In front of a live studio audience and with the help of his news team including brilliant comedic talent Ellie Taylor, Steve N Allen and Rachel Parris, they will analyse the week's news stories, brilliantly lampooning everything from hard news to showbiz and zeitgeist cultural phenomena.

Roving reporters will deliver special reports giving robust and up to the minute analysis of the headlines that really matter - Lib Dems To Get Website; Luxury Watch Successfully Impresses Fellow Bell-ends; There Is No Ball, Admit Table Tennis Players - giving a fascinating insight in to this post-truth world we live in.

Nish Kumar says: "After a year of political shocks, perhaps the biggest and most alarming is that I will be hosting a topical comedy show on BBC Two. My sincere hope is that by the time the show starts the UK will have formed a government for us to satirise."

The first four episodes will air from July on BBC Two with the remaining six airing in November.
