Dates, Times and Prices


Three comedians bring along the news story they "think" is the most important and persuade the audience why it's the most important of week. Will it be Trump's Mexican wall, Brexit drama or Taylor Swift's love life? Plus Daily Mail readers' comments, Harry Potter news fan fiction and questions from the audience. Hosted by Gráinne Maguire. Back after five sell-out years. Like Question Time but sexier.
