  • Last: 14 Aug 2016
Set in the distant future of 2017, this is a satirical and parodical representation of the UK if Bristol was its capital city . With jokes, and silliness, you'll find out more about the hidden and odd characters behind the in the city. The show itself takes the format of a radio news show, employing different influences to create a contained world of original and revolving characters and stories. Think SNL's Weekend Update segment, crossed with Portlandia's bizarre sensibilities, framed within an idiosyncratic This American Life style backdrop, applied to a medium-sized British city.
