How To Get A Date In 30 Seconds

Tracey needs a new boyfriend, and quickly.

Featuring: Michaela Coel (Tracey Gordon), Robert Lonsdale (Connor Jones), Olisa Odele (Ola), Nicholas Asbury (Keys) & Jonathan Bailey (Ash).


In light of last week's cracking series two opener, this week Michaela Coel's comedy feels slightly lighter on big laughs, its humour more understated. A now homeless Tracey wants to move back in with her mum, who stipulates she demonstrate her Christian piety first. Meanwhile, Tracey is pursued with a strange intensity by a posh, attractive man, a plot that allows the show to once again explore the objectification of black people with both wit and a simmering rage.
