Look at this planet. Plans A to Y have all failed. NOW IS THE TIME FOR PLAN Z.

Andy Zaltzman
 – 50% component of global hit satirical podcast The BugleNow Show irregular, Test Match Special cricketo-statisti-quipster, and lynchpin of the arch-rival BBC 5 Live shows 7 Day Saturday and 7 Day Sunday – embarks on a new tour to unveil Plan Z, a long-overdue solution to all the world’s problems.

In a world riven by the squawk and counter-squawk of contemporary politics and media, at a time when technology is sprinting into the future whilst democracy stroppily handbrake-turns back to the past, alleged comedian Zaltzman will fix everything. Give or take. In the spirit of the times, Zaltzman’s Plan Z solution is guaranteed to be fully uncosted and logistically unworkable.

Plan Z will feature Zaltzman’s trademark cocktail of inventive political satire and outright fact-skewing nonsense. It will also showcase the highest-possible tech from the high-tech world of high technology, including the Equivocax SubtExtricator 5000P (the world’s leading hidden message interpreter), the Prognoscitech Soothblaster 3.8 (the solar system’s leading 5G-WiFi-enabled crystal ball), and the DemocratEeeZee SPG-x (the universe’s leading subliminal policy generator).

PLAN Z. COMEDY OF LAST RESORT. WHEN ALL ELSE HAS FAILED, BE PREPARED TO FAIL AGAIN.

Devotedly loopy… lacerating wit… political satire at its most enjoyable”   ★★★★ Dominic Maxwell, The Times
