En route, he re-evaluates his life and career, finds romance, meets some bizarre characters and discovers that people are perfectly prepared to treat a small white domestic appliance as a fully fledged person with a personality in its own right.The fridge goes surfing, is christened, blessed by nuns, serenaded by a bagpiper, attends a bachelor festival and becomes a national celebrity, as Tony, and all those he encounters, become caught-up in the power and philosophy of the fridge!Round Ireland with a Fridge's BBC Television premiere, on the Saint Patrick's Day weekend this year, topped the channel's Sunday night ratings.

Road trip comedy dramatisation of the 1997 book by comedian Tony Hawks. After an ill-advised bet in a pub, Hawks sets off on a hitchhiking trip round the circumference of Ireland accompanied by a small refrigerator. Along the way he and the fridge go surfing, visit a convent, converse with a philosophical toiletries salesman and frequent the drinking holes of Dublin.
