Biting satire of the modern British workplace featuring an oddball collection of characters.
28 May 2018
For me, Peter Kay is at his best when writing/co-writing TV shows and this anthology series is still one of my favourites. Each episode is styled as a fly-on-the-wall documentary, with a camera crew following a bunch of 'ordinary' people in their respected work places. Kay plays 3 or 4 characters per episode and shows his versatility as a character actor. The satire is sharp and there are background visual gags to look out for, which is something he continued in later shows. It's also fun looking out for all the stand-ups and actors who were relative unknowns and are now a lot more famous such as Catherine Tate, Paddy McGuiness, Sian Gibson (Foulkes), Steve Edge etc. You don't have to be a fan of Kay's stand up to enjoy this.
