Donald Trump and Theresa May: A Special Announcement

Donald Trump and Theresa May want you to watch incredible impressions of famous people at 21:30 on BBC One... only on Fox News...

Featuring: Tracey Ullman & Anthony Atamanuik (Donald Trump).

Trump says Theresa May is not hot

President Donald Trump meets with Prime Minister Theresa May to talk trade deals, witch hunts, North Korea summits, Black Panther, church, Brexit, golf, threatening nuclear war and what else to do on the weekend.

Featuring: Tracey Ullman, Laurence Howarth & Anthony Atamanuik (Donald Trump).

It's never awkward being Jeremy Corbyn

Jeremy Corbyn loves the adoration of his fellow airport arrivals travellers, but has some rather awkward encounters, actually, when he keeps seeing ghosts from his past.

Featuring: Tracey Ullman, Jason Forbes, Liam Hourican, Ben Ashenden, Steve Furst & Chris Ryman.


Comedians, mock our Supreme Leader at your peril*

A Corbynista responds to Tracey Ullman's vile blasphemy.

Jack Schwartz, Spiked, 5th June 2018

A new series of the sketch show lands, with Tracey Ullman mercilessly skewering Theresa May, Nicola Sturgeon and, in a new turn, environment secretary Michael Gove. Also in line for a roasting are Jeremy Corbyn, Angela Merkel and Rupert Murdoch. Ben Miller also makes an appearance.

Ben Arnold, The Guardian, 1st June 2018
