Yes, Peter. Independent TVN station has been showing a comedy series based closely on current political events in Poland. I don`t watch TV but I read a lot of comments about the series and it is said to be good satire. Sometimes politicians react angrily to the way they are portrayed in episodes.
The Chairman's Ear (Polish: Ucho Prezesa) is a Polish political satire web series broadcast since 9 January 2017 on YouTube, and since 15 February 2017 on Showmax. It is created by Robert Górski, the lead member of the comedy troupe Kabaret Moralnego Niepokoju.
The series follows the chairman of the ruling political party in Poland (Mr Chairman). The narrative takes place primarily in his office where, joined by his assistant Mariusz, he hosts numerous visitors, including government officials and other public office holders. While Mr Chairman does not hold any elected office himself, it is clear that key political decisions are made in this office, and not in the Chancellery of the Prime Minister (who herself frequents the office). The plot is deeply rooted in contemporary Polish politics, with each character having a real-life counterpart, with whom they share first names (their surnames are never revealed). The titular character of Mr Chairman is based on Jarosław Kaczyński, the leader of the governing Law and Justice party.
The Chairman's Ear is a continuation of a series of cabaret scenes named Government meeting (Polish: Posiedzenie rządu) in which Robert Górski and other cabaret artists impersonated the members of the Civic Platform and the Polish People's Party.
Now that I have watched some parts I must admit it is funny. However, after a while it makes me sad when I realise what halfwit bastards are in power now.
Unfortunately, I cannot turn on English subtitles.
