Maxxx review

O-T Fagbenle delivered a hilarious send-up of the bloated celebrity ego in Maxxx (E4), the sitcom he wrote and stars in, about a washed-up boy band singer trying to revive his career after years of self-indulgent excess.

Maxxx review

Though a little uneven, the show has a sassy attitude and energy, while the the pacy script is liberally peppered with waspish one-liners.

Steve Bennett, Chortle, 2nd April 2020

O-T Fagbenle is on career-defining form as washed-up former boyband member Maxxx, looking to relaunch his career and win back the affections of his ex-girlfriend, the supermodel Jourdan Dunn, in this new comedy series. Reduced to playing grimy nightclub PAs after destroying his early 2000s R&B group with his drug-fuelled antics, Maxxx is determined to get his life back on track and support his adopted son Amit - but first he has to convince a public who largely think he's either dead or a Craig David lookalike.

O-T Fagbenle on his gloriously daft new comedy

O-T Fagbenle is on his knees in a bloodied toga, singing a cappella and begging Jourdan Dunn for one more chance. The supermodel looks wholly nonplussed, so Fagbenle - playing the eponymous deluded narcissist in the new E4 comedy Maxxx - sweeps out imperiously, only to creep back to tug the trailing toga fabric free from the door.
