Further details

Can Josh cheat Geoff and avoid this humiliating fate? Meanwhile in Clacton, Kate and Owen put their competitive personalities to one side in order to try and win a cuddly toy that just so happens to look like a certain curly-haired Devonian.

Press

Penultimate episode of the sitcom starring self-deprecating comic Josh Widdicombe as a fictive version of himself. Despite a shaky start, it has slowly moved away from sub-Peep Show flatshare gags, and tonight's outing is its funniest yet. Landlord Geoff (Jack Dee) has let out his flat for London fashion week, and packed Josh, Kate and Owen off to Clacton. Unfortunately for the friends, he's tagging along, too, with an awkward nephew and an unlikely proposition for Josh. The Chuckle Brothers and Romesh Ranganathan guest star.

Josh: episode 5 - Homme & Away review

This episode of Josh Widdicombe's sitcom certain had the best opening scene of them all so far, with Jack Dee as Josh's landlord Geoff criticising Josh's stand-up because: "There's nothing funny about a grumpy man."

Ian Wolf, On The Box, 9th December 2015
