Banana News Network or BNN is a Pakistani TV show that is broadcast on GEO TV on Tuesdays at 11:05pm. It originally starred Murtaza Chaudary and his team who were formerly part of 4 Man Show on Aaj TV.
BNN puts a comical spin on the happenings in Pakistan. It is a fictitious channel in which celebrities are mocked. The show has segments such as Sports Desk, News Room and Central Studio discussion. Celebrities mocked most often include Mirza Iqbal Baig, Ansar Abbasi and politicians. The main difference between BNN and other comedy Pakistani shows is that only four cast members are employed and they dress up as different celebrities on each show.
