    Drunk voicemail

    Is It EVER a good idea to leave a drunk voicemail?!

    Featuring: Roisin Conaty (Marcella), Caroline Ginty (Caroline), Nina Toussaint-White (Lucy), Dylan Edwards (Billy), Alfie Brown (Mark).


    Last time, our frustrated singleton Marcella had to dress up as a monk. This week she is in a TV ad that pays so well she winds up almost too wrecked to attend her creative writing class. Cue a harrowing session with life coach Frances and an invitation to the party from hell. Roisin Conaty: comedy genius.
