Content[edit]

The 4 Man Show revolves around a fictitious, parody TV channel by the name of, Channel 4.[1] The show is heavy on news channel satire, especially so on the way interviews are conducted on these channels. The show has mock segments pertaining to news bulletins, on-field reporting and celebrity interviews which are based on the 4-member cast's ability to conduct parodies of a large number of diverse people including news-casters, politicians, television celebrities and sportspeople.

The show also raises issues of media freedom, sexism, terrorism, corruption and sectarianism in an off-hand manner.

Parting and New inductions[edit]
