Series 2, Episode 6
This week sees the return of flamboyant film director Dirk Monroe, who's struggling to carve a new career as a pet photographer in Glasgow. Dirk's career starts to pick up when the locals get wind of his new house guest, Osama Bin Laden, but not all his customers are impressed: "You may be a big shot in Afghanistan but you're nothing here," spits one.
Henry VIII returns for more royal romancing but the monarch's wandering eye is upsetting his straight-talking wife, Catherine Parr. "You can tell your mate, Archbishop Cranmer, you'll be sleeping on his sofa because I'm throwing you out," she says.
Omid squeezes back into the turquoise leisure suit of Lambrusco, who has a difficult decision to make when she realises the life of a darts player's wife isn't always a bed of roses. Might she be better taking pot luck with a snooker player instead?
Omid's stand-up routine takes the audience on a comedy rollercoaster, taking in drunk Nigerians, Fabio Capello and the Shadow Cabinet. And the series ends on a musical note with song-and-dance spectacular Commuting - The Musical, in which love blossoms over the prawn cocktail crisps in the unlikely setting of a commuter train ... or was it all just a dream?
