About This Show
A satirical and parodical look at the unique city of Bristol, UK. With jokes, and silliness, you'll find out more about the hidden and odd characters behind the in the city. From events, to openings, you'll find it all within Bristopia. The show itself takes the format of a radio news show, employing different influences to create a contained world of original and revolving characters and stories. Think SNL's Weekend Update segment, crossed with Portlandia's bizarre sensibilities, framed within an idiosyncratic This American Life style backdrop, applied to a medium-sized British city.
