Jonathan Pie, the UK’s angriest news reporter is coming to Politicon ahead of bringing his new live comedy show Back to the Studio for its U.S. premiere in select cities this fall. A frustrated news reporter known for venting in unguarded “off-camera” rants and satirizing the world of politics, entertainment and the media, Jonathan Pie has amassed a huge online following and notably shot to fame in America after his response to the election of Donald Trump racked up over 160 million views worldwide. Pie’s weekly videos regularly achieve millions of views.
The creation of Tom Walker, Jonathan Pie’s newest live show Back to the Studio is already an overseas hit with performances across the UK including Edinburgh and sold out nights at London’s Hammersmith Apollo. Back to the Studio has been praised as “a true tour de force” (Evening Standard) and a “superb blend of well-informed political analysis, hard truths, gratuitous swearing and guilty laughs” (What’s On London). In this show, Jonathan Pie is angrier than ever and his aim is set at the Right, the Left…and everything in between.
