Series 5, Episode 1 - New For Old

The Godfather of British stand-up, John Moloney, returns to the live stage to share his musings on helpful neighbours and no quibble policies. Jokes, surprises and a few special guests feature along the way.

Further details

As with thousands of others in the entertainment industry, John's job ground to a halt, overnight, when COVID struck, so to be back recording again after a two-year break, in front of a live audience at The Stand comedy club in Glasgow is particularly special.

During the pandemic, government advice suggested John might retrain as an IT Consultant but he was understandably not tempted, especially when he considered a comment from a taxi driver who having recognized his voice said, "your stuff reminds me of Tony Hancock - you speak about ordinary stuff, and you make it funny"!

Commenting on the new series, producer Richard Melvin says: "I'm so delighted to be teaming up again with John for a fifth series of his hilarious show for the BBC. He's one of the most consistently funny, kind, and supportive people I've had the pleasure of working with over the years."
