Furious spoof UK News reporter Jonathan Pie has brutally honest views on the world of politics and entertainment. Known for venting his spleen in unguarded “off-camera” rants, Pie’s online videos have been viewed by millions worldwide.
Pie is the brainchild of actor Tom Walker, who first brought the character to life in September 2015. He became a viral hit when he famously ‘lost it’ outside the Houses of Parliament, and his fan base has continued to gain momentum ever since.
Tom’s co-writer is comedian Andrew Doyle, who started writing for Pie in December 2015. Since then they have collaborated on the live show, various pieces for television and radio, and weekly online videos including a response to the US election result which has had in excess of 130 million views.
