With the 3rd millennium almost 2.5% complete, Andy Zaltzman, one of the UK's leading satirical comedians, assesses the state of Planet Earth and its most famous and controversial species–the human race.

In the biggest stand-up tour of his career, Andy will attempt to concoct vaguely plausible answers to perennial questions such as What?, Who?, Where?, and above all Why?

As chair of The News Quiz since 2020, Andy has brought his inventive brand of satirical comedy to BBC Radio 4's long-running flagship topical comedy show, earning the show multiple awards, critical acclaim and a growing listenership.

Andy has hosted The Bugle, one of the world's longest-running and best-loved comedy podcasts, since 2007 (alongside John Oliver until 2015, and with numerous co-hosts from numerous continents since 2016).Renowned for its unique cocktail of up-to-the-minute global satire and premium-grade hogwash, and listened to by hundreds of thousands around the world, The Bugle recently passed the 600-episode mark, and has clocked up around 100 million total downloads.

Andy is unquestionably amongst the very best of the one-person list of Satirical Stand-Up Comedians Who Are Also Professional Cricket Statisticians. Since 2016, he has been a key member of the Test Match Special team, adding his distinctive blend of knowledge, expertise, humour and numerical inquisitiveness to the BBC's legendary cricket broadcast.

He has toured in the USA, India and Australia, wrote a book about the 2008 economic crisis, and will be appearing in series 18 of Taskmaster in Autumn 2024.

“outright hilarious... beautifully formed.” Dominic Maxwell, The Times ★★★★

“Andy Zaltzman has revitalised the News Quiz... fizzes with a vitality and sense of fun that’s rare in such topical comedy war horses.” Steve Bennett, Chortle

“The Bugle: Silliness and laughter... Zaltzman is a sharp writer and an excellent satirist who combines political observation with daft whimsy.” Fiona Sturges, Financial Times
