Move aside big foot, Angela Merkel as Hitler's love child is taking center stage
8 May 2017 | by nevynhSee all my reviews

The Fake News Show is a current affairs show taking on fake news. Move aside big foot, Angela Merkel as Hitler's love child is taking center stage.

It doesn't offer anything new from existing British faux quiz shows like QI, 8 out of 10 Cats, Just a Minute etc. but it can try a whole lot less harder to find the comedy and where it really gets fun is when they take possible strange facts and ask the panel to decide if they're real or not.

It's a fun 25 minutes, if you enjoy dry English wit, unless you're entirely too willing to ignore the findings of intelligence agencies in the States around interference in their elections or don't believe the 90%+ of scientists that say global warming is a genuine problem.
