Andy Zaltzman – Sunday Papers Live

Andy Zaltzman is a stand-up comedian, broadcaster and author, who has firmly established himself in the vanguard of British comedy with his unique brand of political satire.

He is the writer and presenter of the satirical podcast The Bugle, the huge global phenonemon. Since The Bugle’s inception in 2007 it has gained a worldwide fan-base – including a prominent US audience. It has aired almost 200 episodes and averages 2 million downloads a month. With thousands of 5-star reviews on iTunes, it has been described as “a roaring success” by The Independent. Initially co-written and presented with John Oliver (host of HBO’s Last Week Tonight), the podcast has now been relaunched as part of the Radiotopia network, with Andy joined by a revolving group of regular co-hosts including Hari Kondabolu, Nish Kumar, Wyatt Cenac and Helen Zaltzman.

His 2017 22-date UK tour Plan Z sees him address the diverse issues of modern global politics in his distinctive satirical style.
