WATERFORD WHISPERS NEWS: LIVE
With previous headlines like ‘Jesus Not Coming Back by the Looks of it, Admits Vatican’; ’Dozens Injured in a Stampede as Second Checkout Opens in Lidl’; and “North Korea Lands First Ever Man on the Sun’, Waterford Whispers News is everybody’s favourite daily dose of online satire acquiring more than 14 million readers last year in pretty much every country in the world (except of course North Korea).
So sharp and incisive are the headlines, that Waterford Whispers News has made the actual, real news on many occasions, with pastors in America’s bible belt railing against the Jesus story from their pulpit, while Lidl’s German management team told their Irish staff that they never wanted to see headlines like the stampede story again and several media organisations like CNN reporting the North Korea landing a man on the sun story as fact.
All of this brilliance is now being developed into a stunning live show set in a newsroom in a parallel satirical universe, but one that’s strangely familiar. A WWN news anchor flanked by weather, sports, foreign affairs and celeb reporters present a rapid-fire, subversive, rollercoaster of a production, along with some of your favourite Waterford Whispers stories, and even more new ones specially produced for this no holds barred live show.
