Was Donald Trump actually born and raised in Pakistan? Is Hillary Clinton secretly a robot? And what do people think Steven Spielberg once did to a triceratops? As part of Channel 4’s Fake News Week, this brand new comedy panel show, premiering on Channel 4 on Monday 6 February at 8.00pm, peers behind the wobbly façade of fake news, dissects the outlandish headlines, alternative facts, dodgy Photo-shops, and all-too-believable viral clips that have pushed post-truth to the front pages.
At a time when world events are increasingly stranger than fiction, and no one knows who or what to believe, The Fake News Show might just be the only news show you can trust. Or can you?
Hosted by Stephen Mangan and with a veritable feast of some of the sharpest and funniest minds around, including Richard Osman, Katherine Ryan, Jon Richardson and Richard Ayoade, this is one night of hilarity not to be missed.
