Cast & crew
GameFace, which had its pilot in 2014, has been commissioned as a series, which is good news for writer and star Roisin Conaty and for us. Oh, it's not something we've not seen before. Shambolic thirtysomething singleton drinks too much, eats too much cake, reads self-help books - it's more scatological than Miranda, less whimperingly funny than Fleabag, but firmly in that part of the spectrum. Yet Conaty still has the ability to pull something truly leftfield from nowhere, such as the nice, if overdone, gag about the guy who had, somehow, never seen Friends. Immensely likable, surprisingly moreish.Euan Ferguson, The Guardian, 15th October 2017
Sitcom GameFace originally began as a pilot back in 2014 and has only just now been given a full series on E4.Ian Wolf, On The Box, 12th October 2017
It's probably impossible to review Roisin Conaty's Gameface without mentioning the F-word: Fleabag.Steve Bennett, Chortle, 12th October 2017
If you are the kind of person who doesn't watch E4 because you think it is a bit too youthy, then make an exception for GameFace, the new series written by and starring Roisin Conaty.Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke, 10th October 2017
