Further details

Lucy wants Jon to appear on All Star Mr And Mrs playing against Rob Beckett. Jon's still annoyed that Beckett replaced him on 8 Out Of 10 Cats and doesn't want to take part if Rob's involved.

To celebrate the Richardsons' move to Hebden Bridge, Lucy stages a huge birthday party for daughter Elsie. Jon is against the party but is finally convinced to take part by a family friend: the all-round entertainer and comedy legend Bernie Clifton.

Jon's pub

Jon Richardson has his very own pub, 'The Dog and Bastard', in his garden in Hebden Bridge.

Featuring: Jon Richardson (Jon) & Lucy Beaumont (Lucy).


Jon Richardson extends his misanthropic persona to a Curb-ish mockumentary, satirising his married domestic life with fellow comedian Lucy Beaumont. There are good gags about Richardson's eccentricities, but the cringeworthy comeuppances are underpowered.

No need to curb your enthusiasm here, there is plenty to be enthusiastic about.

Meet The Richardsons review

If you were looking for a British answer to Larry David, you could do worse than set-in-his-ways curmudgeon Jon Richardson.

Steve Bennett, Chortle, 27th February 2020

Meet The Richardsons review

Two married comedians do scripted reality. Sounds like a treat. Who better to send up the sort of bilge they broadcast on ITV Be than two nimble wits?
