Like Question Time if David Dimbleby was Jane Pasty played by Holly Burn.... Jane is making her name through her controversial no nonsense opinions – she has come to realise the more offensive her statements the more attention she gets. And Jane loves attention! There are no depths to which she won’t sink in order to cause a stir- she’d definitely be hacking phones if people still spoke on them!
This show is an interactive show with chat show elements and debates about the big controversial topics of our age, all the obvious suspects: feminism, veganism, climate change, immigration, Brexit!
Jane interacts with the audience, putting across her points with the aim of changing everyones mind to fit her beliefs. Will she succeed? Or will she offend and make out her freedom of speech has been curbed?!
