Quotes

Rick Spleen: You know what Mel told me about Michael? She found out he used to work in the City, had a complete nervous breakdown, completely flipped out, had to give it up, wanted to do something else so he opened this place instead.

A sharp comedy
26 February 2017 | by studioATSee all my reviews

This isn't your big, flashy, three camera sitcom. This is something entirely different, at least in the UK, and so much better for it.

Jack Dee is at his deadpan best in this role, carrying a show that isn't afraid of leaving you curling up in embarrassment, and yet we root for his character along the way.

Sharply written and deftly performed, this show won't be for everyone, especially those brought up in this modern era where a joke is not a joke unless the word sex is mentioned somewhere on route to the punch line. However, for those who stick with it they'll find 30 mins of entertainment.
