Press

A new series begins with Lee, family and friends waiting to make a sponsored parachute jump to raise money for a children's hospital ward. But, as it turns out, one parachute is missing - who will provide the best excuse to stay behind? A little comic masterpiece of cowardice that is worthy of Hancock's Half Hour.
