About Us

Britain’s Got Satire is a new topical comedy show for local community radio.

We filmed the pilot 30-minute radio recording in front of a live audience at one of London's top comedy venues performed by a team of highly experienced professional comedians.


The script was derived from entries to a new writers competition promoted by community radio stations across Britain and a number of the UK's leading comedy writing forums. This material was fused with ideas and humour generated by our award performance team - Jay Sodagar, Dave Chawner, Paul Pennington, and Aatif Nawaz.
