Very funny show - but can be painful!
12 February 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

One of the 'cringy comedy' shows where the lead is very funny but you almost want to look away as they are so embarrassing. Just watch the episode with the new guy and his first week buzz.. nearly wet myself laughing. Best episode so far! Stephen Mangan is excellent in these types of roles - he seems to be a lovable Alan Patridge with morose features and an awkward honesty that rivals Larry David in Curb Your Enthusiam. The rest of the cast are also great but do slightly feel out of place hanging around the loser that is Stephen's. I hope the writers keep up the excellent pace - often great shows like this can petter out.
