The Show: Trumped

We live in strange and unusual times where satire cannot even begin to keep up with public figures and events. Watch it and weep.

Let’s enjoy the giggles whilst we can, lest we forget Peter Cook’s take on the effectiveness of satire

“like those wonderful Berlin cabarets … which did so much to stop the rise of Hitler and prevent the outbreak of the Second World War”
