Zapiro, Thierry Cassuto and the ZANews Puppet Workshop

South African 2009 

Thierry Cassuto is a film and television producer based in Cape Town, South Africa. He is best known as the executive producer and co-creator of ZANews alongside Zapiro, whose socio-political commentary through satirical cartoons has been published worldwide. The show is a daily and weekly satirical news programme in the form of a mock puppet television newscast and features on both the web and television. ZANews features key local and international political figures and celebrities. For eight seasons, ZANews has been using its puppet cast as mouthpieces for satirical commentary on South Africa's socio-political arena. The South African satirical news puppet show is loosely inspired by the British cult feature Spitting Image and French Guignols de l'info. The Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu stated the following in a letter when ZANews was nominated for an Emmy award in 2015: “The creators of ZANews are very clever, though they exaggerate the size of my nose! They are clever because they can make us laugh and cry at the same time. They tell the most wonderful painful truths –– hilariously. They are like an antibiotic for those who take themselves too seriously.”
