Storyline

Sanjeev Kumar is an aspiring chat-show host. He has celebrity guests round to his house (no. 42) to talk to them, but it all falls apart when his family cut in on the action. The celebrity guests spend far more time speaking to Sanjeev's 'mother', 'father' and 'grandmother' (played by Sanjeev Bhaskar's 'Goodness Gracious Me' colleague, Meera Syal), and usually insulting Sanjeev in punjabi.

Trivia

Sanjeev Bhaskar says he used 42 for the show's house number because he was heavily influenced by Douglas Adams's radio series "The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy" when he was growing up. See more »

Live comedy set in a studio a father built for his son
6 May 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

An informal chat show style comedy from a revitalised British comedy scene. Much more intelligent than some of the racially stereotyped humor emerging from the States. The guests are interesting, ranging from Charlotte Church, various tier 2 actors and political guests.

The guests in the first series don't know that the show is a send up and often take the comments at face value. Their confusion is amusing as the "family" play jokes on each other and the guests.

Some guests won't be recognisable to viewers outside Britain.

The same actors had another comedy show. I can't remember the name of it at the moment. Some similarity in style to Ali G, but without the drug references or the bling bling.

Highly recommended for the intelligent viewer.
