BBC Two sitcom / sketch show set in an odd town. 22 episodes (3 series), 1999 - 2017. Stars Reece Shearsmith, Mark Gatiss and Steve Pemberton.

Series 3, Episode 3 - Turn Again Geoff Tipps

Fired from his job, Geoff heads to London to fulfil his dream of becoming Royston Vasey's leading entertainer. Meanwhile, Legz Akimbo theatre company mount their latest production - a sensitive look at the disabled - and fag-hag Tish descends on Camden Town.

Further details

A departure here; for the first time, we are taken out of Royston Vasey and to the big smoke. Geoff Tipps is bored of his life in Royston Vasey and travels to London to begin his new career... as a stand-up comic. Not a natural at telling jokes, it's not only his act that bombs!

Meanwhile, in Camden Town, fag hag Tish meets up with her Legz Akimbo acting friend. And the theatre company's extended improv session on the streets of the capital doesn't go down too well at all.
