The 4 Man Show is a Pakistani television series that airs on Aaj TV on Sundays at 8:00 PM.[1] It made its debut on TV in 2005 and is currently on a hiatus since November 2013.

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]

In April 2011, some members of the team of 4 Man Show started a new program on GEO TV and Banana News Network (BNN).[2] The show continued with the remaining cast till March 2012 after which it went on a hiatus.
The show was revived in November 2012 with Ali Gul Pir added to the cast of the show.[3] A year later, in November 2013, 4 Man Show went on another hiatus, probably due to a lack of ratings.
