With Ireland lurching from one display of incompetence to the next, this new satirical four-part sketch show that will look at the country's political and media culture using a range of sketch formats and, would you believe, media manipulation. The writing and performing team - including Barry Murphy, Gary Cooke, Paul Howard, John Colleary, Alan Shortt, Eleanor Tiernan, Colm Tobin and Tara Flynn - has been involved in the highest level of Irish comedy and satire in recent years (Apres Match, Ross O'Carroll-Kelly, The Savage Eye, etc).
