British Comedy Guide, 4th June 2020

Channel 4's comedy Home continues to delight to an absurd degree. Sami looks bound to get at least one girl, despite hardly trying: he's just a thoughtful, kind, funny man. Douglas Henshall is appearing now as an appalling ex, a smug, entitled irritant; it's as far as an actor can come from Shetland's Jimmy Perez and still own the same face.

He's just one of the cast strengths in Rufus Jones's little ensemble sitcom. Another highlight was an unimpeachable extended discussion between Sami (Youssef Kerkour) and his shopkeeper pal Raj, two non-drinking immigrants, about the perfect British pub. Warm, thought-provoking, clever without clever-clever, always.

Comedy skewers our immigration dilemma

A Channel 4 sitcom about a Syrian refugee in suburbia might sound worthy but it brilliantly pokes fun at our fears.

Youssef Kerkour interview

It's testament to Home's success that the 41-year-old actor, born and raised in Morocco before graduating from college in New York and moving to England at the age of 23, has been popping up in all manner of classy fare since.

TV review: Home

Home, the series Rufus Jones has created and written about a Syrian refugee who winds up in Dorking is truly nimble and brilliant.

Home review

Bad comedy on telly is hardly unusual, but it's rare to see something so dreadful it's actually nauseating. The speeches about Britain's asylum laws, not to mention gay rights in Nigeria, came almost as a relief.

Rufus Jones on making a version of Home for the USA

"Ben Stiller contacted us and said it was perfect. It all gets shaken around now and if it doesn't happen there [at NBC] we will do it somewhere else. Ben is very committed to it in a very flattering way."
