ED2012 Comedy Review: One Rogue Reporter (Rich Peppiatt / Something For The Weekend)
Make sure you see this show before Rich Peppiatt is buried too deeply in lawsuits. An extremely brave ex-Daily Star reporter, he gallantly strives to expose the real truth of tabloid journalism. He’s taking control here, turning the tables on the editors of publications like The Sun, The Guardian, and the Daily Star. The deeply ingrained corruption of the media is not news to most in the wake of the Leveson inquiry, but with the quintessential flair of a tabloid journalist Peppiatt gives us an eye-opening hour of never before seen footage, including some of his own hilarious investigations. ‘One Rogue Reporter’ is all we need to really understand the (allegedly – lawyers take note) abysmal behaviour of some of today’s media leaders.
Pleasance Courtyard, 1-27 Aug, 5.00pm.
