Series 2, Episode 3
In tonight's episode, Omid's characters include the hapless water cooler delivery man who has inadvertently become an adviser to MI6 and been dispatched to the Afghan/Pakistan border to infiltrate a Taliban stronghold; and a punctuation expert who promotes the valuable work being done by the charity Apostrophes For Africa. "These people have been suffering terribly without adequate grammatical facilities," she says.
Omid also dons a cherry-red wig and false eyelashes to step into the velour leisure suit of feisty and flatulent Wag Lambrusco and gives viewers a peek into the excessive world of Darts Players' Wives.
Street fighter Steve "The Dragon" Thompson returns with some tips on how to lead a greener life, including using a baseball bat made of sustainable wood and using bio fuel in petrol bombs, and Look Eastwards' Gordon Farahani is on hand to promote some more television gold from the Middle East, including Seven Brides For One Brother and The Arabvision Song Contest presented by Tel Aviv Wogan.
Straightforward stand-up is also on the agenda as Omid's comedy musings take in recycling, Gordon Brown's schooldays and drug testing in sport.
