Storyline

Sitcom following the trials and tribulations of self-appointed Muslim community leader Mr. Khan and his long suffering family. Khan is a larger-than-life character, a small man with big dreams and strident opinions. Like many of us he's struggling to make ends meet - but he's proud of his thriftiness - witness his 1979 suit and ancient yellow Mercedes. Things would be so much easier if everyone just listened to him and followed his lead, but his obsessively house-proud wife and two feisty daughters have other ideas.

Trivia

Although the show is set in Sparkhill, Birmingham, there are no longer any suitable TV studios in Birmingham, (since the closure of BBC Pebble Mill in 2004,) so the show is recorded at the BBC's new Media City studios in Salford, Greater Manchester. However, creator and star Adil Ray insists that some location filming is done in Birmingham for each series. See more »

Its pretty good
3 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If you watch this show without reading the bad press, you can have a good laugh. Its not Only Fools. Its not Blackadder 2-4. But it is funny.

It will only get better. I find Mr Khan both funny and likable main character.

Its got some great lines, but if you only follow the crowd and live your life like a sheep you wont find that you like the show yourself

Mrs Browns Boys is a terrible show, Having watched an episode of that before, now watching this, This is Only Fools compared to MBB which is sub On The Buses at best

Worth a watch, don't expect too much and you'll laugh
