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.
