Ash Atalla is best known for The Office, which he produced at the BBC. Since then he has become Editor of Comedy at Talkback Thames, where he came up with the concept for Man Stroke Woman after 'an early mid-life crisis' at the age of 32. Those staples of 30-something angst - work, friendships and relationships - are the focus of this offbeat, wittily observed sketch show.
