Swiss Toni continues to run his car salesroom with his small staff consisting of his receptionist, a junior salesman (Paul) and a drunken senior salesman Geoff. While selling cars may well be like "making love to a beautiful woman" but Toni's life is not all roses. Written by

Watching Swiss Toni is rather like enjoying Fine Wines and Belgian Chocolates.
What a fantastic 'old school' comedy from Charlie Higson! The show just got better and better as it went on - the characters deepened, and Mr Higson cleverly developed Swiss from his Fast Show days into a much more complex and lovable human being in this delightful comedy. Of course, not every episode was equally brilliant - but how many shows are? But over the two series, we got laugh out loud farce, great one liners, superb interplay especially between Swiss and his staff, and some super little stories. The only character I didn't enjoy much was 'mother' whom I found rather irritating at times, but over all, a fantastic little gem of a series. Shame they don't make them like this anymore.
