Ullman has fronted various comic sketch shows in both the UK and the States, and starred in the first series of the topical Tracey Breaks the News last year.
What’s Tracey Breaks the News about?
The second series of impressionist and comedian Tracey Ullman’s political show Tracey Breaks the News centres around topical issues and people, from Judi Dench to Nicola Sturgeon.
Ullman exposes her subjects’ foibles with skill and aplomb, from German chancellor Angela Merkel’s irrepressible eye-roll to environment secretary Michael Give’s pout. And for this second season, Ullman is sticking to her strengths, with less of her (slightly dull) Theresa May impressions and more of smug, self-regarding Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
There’s also a new addition to the line-up that’s set to be a sure-fire hit: Jacob Rees-Mogg (Liam Hourican), accompanied (obviously) by his long-suffering nanny.
