During a hiatus from the biz, the cockney comic began looking at, in his words, "the big issues", and a new, sub-Karl Pilkington venture was born. In this first episode, Micky grapples with what gender means today through a series of tenuously linked encounters with, among others, the owner of a men-only barber's, a female wrestler and a transgender woman. The result prioritises weirdness over insight - and proper laughs.
