Brilliant.

Comedian and actor Shaun Micallef examines the latest news...and then mocks it in clever and hilarious fashion.

If you know Shaun Micallef's previous work - The Micallef Program/Programme/Pogram, Newstopia plus his work on Full Frontal - you'll know what to expect. Clever dialogue-driven comedy, where every word matters and the joke often hinges on a single word. Throw in some Pythonesque left-field randomness and there you have his modus operandi.

Now put that in a fake newscast environment (a la The Colbert Report) and any item of news is a source for comedy.

Very intelligent comedy...with a touch of the absurd throw in.
