Press Clippings

Mash hits: these bite-size packages from the enthusiastic but scattershot news spoof seem suspiciously like filler to push sombre 9/11 drama The Looming Tower round to the hour. But they are also a useful reminder of the comedic chops of newsdesk pairing Ellie Taylor and Steve N Allen.

For those moments when you feel yourself growing a new bile duct while flicking between Twitter and Question Time, here's something of a palliative. Nish Kumar and his correspondents are back with a new series, taking apart the week's fresh outrages with a pneumatic drill and a smile.

Ali Catterall, The Guardian, 26th October 2018

Probably the closest thing the UK has to a Daily Show/Last Week Tonight, the Nish Kumar-fronted topical comedy show returns for a new series of satirical snarking. Perfect timing, just as the US gears up for the midterms and Brexit reaches its frothing, farcical climax (Lord help us all).
