Pilot - Comedy Showcase: Chickens
Comedy Showcase, in which rising stars from the UK comedy scene showcase their talents in 30-minute specials, returns for a new series, starting with a quirky period British comedy written by and starring Simon Bird, Joe Thomas and Jonny Sweet.
They're the only men in the village, and all the women hate them. It's the First World War. Our nation's heroes are fighting the good fight on foreign soil, but in one sleepy English village three young men remain: George is a conscientious objector, Cecil has flat feet and Bert really is a coward, unfortunately.
In the eyes of their neighbours they're all the same - chickens. So in a world of women, children and the infirm, these twenty-something chaps have only each other for company and nothing else in common.
