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, topical comedy series that comments on everything that has happened - or not happened - in the past week, created by the writers of website The Daily Mash.

With the help of his news team - including Ellie Taylor, Steve N Allen and Rachel Parris - he analyses the week's news stories from an unashamedly left-wing standpoint, lampooning everything from hard news to showbiz and zeitgeist cultural phenomena.

Roving reporters 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 into the post-truth world we live in.
