Event description

Description

Prompted by the political turmoil of the last year and the renaissance of American television satire, there has been much debate lately about the apparent lack of British topical comedy on TV.

But why are we looking for it now? Do we believe that satire can turn the tide of what, to many, feels like the crumbling of liberal democracy? Or do we simply need funny people to break the tension created by Brexit, the refugee crisis and Trump?

In this session, some of the brightest minds in political comedy including Rory Bremner (Bremner, Bird and Fortune), Jolyon Rubinstein (The Revolution Will Be Televised), Nish Kumar (The Mash Report) and Matt Forde (Unspun) will ask the question, Satire! What is it good for?
