Press Clippings

Last in the series of Alistair McGowan and Ronni Ancona's topical comedy. "Satire" wouldn't be the right word for the quickfire overdubs of the week's news footage, since the gags rely on loose puns and casual stereotypes more than swingeing critique. This week, expect an excess of Harry Kane and Gareth Southgate.

Despite the escalating absurdity of current public life, there hasn't really been a satire capable of responding to it. The latest to try its luck is this Alistair McGowan and Ronni Ancona vehicle, which will revoice real-life footage of celebrities and politicians, and presumably struggle to come up with anything more ridiculous.
