With Donald Trump president, Brexit on the horizon and UKIP struggling to find a reason to exist a golden era of political satire is in full swing. Newstwerp takes a satirical look at news, politics and current events taking place in the UK and abroad on a weekly basis. Besides the gags in each story the show puts forward a well-researched and unrestrained point of view, which is on the right side of common sense.
The host regularly interviews politicians and celebrities who are represented as simple animations (think Newsnight meets South Park). The interviewee appears by ‘satellite’ on a big screen in the studio, while the host grills them on their latest scandal.
