Lead Balloon - Series 1 - 4
Jack Dee plays Rick Spleen, a tired, cynical and exasperated comedian who has to sell out more times than he would like in order to pay the bills.
He and Marty, his American co-writer, spend their days arguing, drinking too much coffee, and devising work avoidance strategies.
Further distractions are provided by Magda, Rick's home help, his show-biz agent wife Mel, their teenage daughter Sam and her feckless boyfriend Ben.
This box set contains all 27 episodes plus loads of extras.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", "Region free", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
