The show is recorded the day before transmission to give it that all-important topical edge. One of the guests in the first show is Labour leadership hopeful Owen Smith. Future guests include Ruth Davidson, Chuka Umumma and Angus Davidson.

Comedians Andy Zaltzman, Simon Evans, Al Green, Ayesha Hazarika and Francesco De Carlo will also be chipping in. Could this finally be the UK's answer the The Daily Show? There's only one way to find out. Watch it on Wednesday. Or - two ways I suppose - you could always read our review on Thursday.
