ABOUT PAPER CUTS
Have you SEEN the state of the papers today? Paper Cuts has. Every weekday some of Britain’s sharpest commentators and funniest comedians come together to look at the madness, the strangeness, the obsessions, and – occasionally – the brilliance of our national press.
Paper Cuts is the fast, funny, modern newspaper review. In each pacy twenty-minute edition, our panel picks out the most eye-popping headlines, the stories that matter and the most offbeat tales the press can offer, and offers them up for your incredulity and entertainment.
From the Mail’s obsession with Woke to the Daily Star’s war on pigeons (“FEATHERED PSYCHOS!”) to all the things the Guardian is telling you not to enjoy, PAPER CUTS digs into the newspapers’ own private manias – and what they tell us about Britain.
Informed, witty and sceptical but never cynical, Paper Cuts reinvents the traditional newspaper review format with a mix of journalistic expertise and raw humour; Paper Cuts is a moment of sanity and comedy in an overheated media world.
