Jeremy Corbyn to guest on The Last Leg

Jeremy Corbyn is to appear on the first show of a new series of Channel 4’s The Last Leg on June 10.

The topical comedy show returns for its eight series and will again be hosted by comedian Adam Hills alongside Alex Brooker and Josh Widdicombe.

The show is filmed live and contains topical discussions, sketches and interaction with the TV audience through Twitter.

Guests appear part way through the show and are usually comedians or actors, rarely does a politician appear on the show.

However, Nick Clegg accepted an invite to the show prior to last year’s general election.

 

For a show that regularly ridicules and questions politicians, it is a risk for Corbyn to appear on the live show.

Despite this, The Last Leg does lean to the left in the views expressed, therefore in line with the Labour leader’s politics.
