From the writer and producer behind such comedy heavyweights as The Day Today Knowing Me Knowing You...With Alan Partridge and I'm Alan Partridge as writer / performer comes Armando Ianucci's very own incisive and sometimes downright vicious comedy series. With the inventive and unpredictable Ianucci at the helm each episode loosely follows a theme where he'll comment upon human behaviour through his quirky gaze poking fun at all those who deserve it and probably those who don't as well. Joined by Hugh an old man who talks about the old days and the East End Thug who has a unique way of problem solving there has never been a more entertaining way of looking at the peculiarities of modern existence! Produced and cut with deftness the show initially received little media attention however it has since become a firm cult favourite and deserves its place in the cannon along side the likes of Alan Partridge and Brasseye.
