Matt Forde is one of the country’s most in-demand satirists, and host of Dave’s ultra-topical political comedy show Unspun with Matt Forde which has broadcast four series. The show features MP4, a rock band made up of actual politicians, and the show is recorded in front of a live studio audience featuring up-to-the-minute topical material on that week’s current affairs, comedian correspondents from around the world, and weekly interviews with leading political figures which have included Tony Blair, Tim Farron, Anne Widdicombe, Nick Farron and Ruth Davidson.
