The Day Today

Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 21 April 2022

The Day Today is a bizarre British parody of television current affairs shows, first broadcast in 1994 and created by comedian Armando Iannucci and Chris Morris. Morris has received numerous accolades, including Morris winning the 1994 British Comedy Award for Best Newcomer. The remainder of the presentation was presented by a cast of news-programme stereotypes that are still easily recognisable today, with Morris shouting out news headlines about robs of the pound and its replacement by an emergency currency based on the Queen's eggs. Watching Chris Morris's later stitch-ups of politicians, pop stars, and pundits on Brass Eye, with ordinary people of the public being compelled to say stupid things in the show's regular Speak Your Brains Vox Pops sequence resembles seeing a smart public school sixth-former mocking the oiks. Despite such criticism, The Day Today introduced some key figures of stage and screen to the country's attention, as well as defining the approach to satire for the next two decades, a record only comic icons like That Was the Week That Was and Not the Nine O'Clock News can rival, despite such criticism. Armando Iannucci, Chris Morris, and cast brought their characters into millions of living rooms, thanks to millions of viewers' on the back of the hugely popular and award-winning Radio 4 comedy On The Hour, Armando Iannucci, Chris Morris, and cast. After the initial pilot for On The Hour was hired to help create a realistic sports reporter who later developed into Alan Partridge, Steve Coogan was recruited in. Doon Mackichan starred several characters in The Day Today, as well as shows that followed, including Brass Eye and I'm Alan Partridge, as well as shows that followed.
