Luke Walsall missed the education boat, never got out of Cheveley, and spends his weekends as the hapless designated driver for his ungrateful friends. Sipping his Coke and chatting hyperactively, while they drink themselves into absurdity, Luke struggles, with excruciating awkwardness, to climb the macho pecking order.

Each episode of All Bar Luke covers the dying minutes of another nightmare evening for Luke. Whether he's trapped with the hen party from hell or pouring his heart out to a cab driver - only Luke's voice is picked out of the late night hubbub.
