Fleabag is indulging in some late night... news.

Featuring: Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) & Hugh Skinner (Harry).


Fleabag is an unflinching, clever look at tricky youth

Head to iPlayer now and learn to love an anti-hero who is just as clueless, skint, horny and selfish as the rest of us.

Kasia Delgado, Radio Times, 21st July 2016

Fleabag: modern life is rubbish is BBC3's newest comedy

Greedy. Perverted. Selfish. Apathetic. Cynical. Depraved. Just some of the adjectives that the titular Fleabag uses to describe her life in the opening episode of this new BBC3 sitcom and over the course of the half hour, she definitely manages to tick the boxes on all of the above.

Colin McMahon, The Custard TV, 21st July 2016

Fleabag: a gloriously rude update of Bridget Jones

Is eye-popping female sex comedy your sort of thing? If not, best look away now.

Jasper Rees, The Telegraph, 21st July 2016

TV preview: Fleabag, BBC Three

Why do some TV comedies work while others fail to hit the mark? Don't ask me. If I knew I'd have a better job than this. Is it the writing? Is it the casting? Phoebe Waller-Bridge wrote and starred in C4 houseshare comedy Crashing and now BBC Three's Fleabag, and while the first one whiffed a bit the latest one is the real deal.

Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke, 20th July 2016
