Birds of a Feather

One of the nineties' most consistently successful and fondly remembered sitcoms, Birds of a Feather stars Pauline Quirke and Linda Robson as Sharon and Tracey, North London-born sisters left to fend for themselves, both financially and emotionally, when their husbands are jailed for armed robbery.

While Darryl and Chris do time, the girls try numerous ways to bolster their dwindling finances from dog-walking services to hawking cheap perfume, swimming-pool construction to their own cleaning business: 'Maids of Ongar'. Doing their best to hang onto 'Dalentrace', Tracey's smart home, the sisters also enjoy regular visits from waspish yet sympathetic neighbour Dorien (Lesley Joseph), whose high-grade gossip and extra-marital antics liven up many a dull day in Chigwell.


BAFTA® and Golden Globe® nominee Jane Horrocks (Absolutely Fabulous, Little Voice) and Mark Addy (Game of Thrones, The Full Monty) and from the producers of The IT Crowd and The Office, comes Trollied, a new and original British comedy. And it's definitely one to check out...
Set in Valco, it finds the funny in one of our most familiar surroundings and focuses on the types of characters we all recognise: bored checkout staff, ineffectual managers and a range of customers, from the irate to the downright bizarre.
Acting deputy manager Julie (Horrocks) struggles to assert her authority whilst trying desperately hard to make a good impression on store manager Gavin (Jason Watkins, Being Human). Her people skills are significantly lacking for a start, often to the amusement of butchery double-act Andy (Addy) and Kieran (Nick Blood, Material Girl).
The butchers enjoy winding each other up and, while Andy's life is all about meat, Kieran is bored of chops, mince and ribs. He wants something better from life. Similarly, on checkouts, Katie (Chanel Cresswell, This Is England) is fed up and dreams of going travelling. Meanwhile, new starter Margaret (Rita May, Coronation Street), a recruit of Valco's older person employment scheme and a constant source of irritation to Julie, soon finds she isn't suited to a career on the tills. Deferring to the delicatessen, a whole new world of olives and couscous opens up for her...
Trollied is directed by Paul Walker (Shameless), scripted by a team of writers led by Julie Rutterford (Shameless) and executive produced by BAFTA® Award winner Ash Atalla (The IT Crowd, The Office).


Every day throws up a moral conflict for Adam the vicar of St Saviour’s, and his door must always be open to urban sophisticates with ulterior motives, the chronically lonely, the lost, the homeless, the poor and the insane. All are welcome at St Saviour’s and Adam can’t turn any of them away. Even if they’re clearly lying, mad or just very annoying.
In addition to caring for his flock Adam has to worry about the financial burden of running a huge, decaying building – with a smashed stained glass window – and a dwindling congregation. He has to contend with hopeless volunteers, ambitious church rivals, the sinister attentions of the Archdeacon and the romantic attentions of Adoha, a renowned ‘cassock-chaser’ and church regular. Even his supposedly supportive Lay Reader Nigel is a pedantic careerist who thinks he should be running the place himself.

Jim Davidson

Jim Davidson has long been amongst the country's most popular live entertaines, with his outrageous, no holds barred approach to adult humour.

The Thick of it

The Thick of It is a British comedy television series that satirises the inner workings of modern British government. It was first broadcast on BBC Four in 2005, and has so far completed fourteen half-hour episodes and two special hour-long episodes to coincide with Christmas and Gordon Brown's appointment as Prime Minister. To date, the series has earned Best New Comedy and Best Comedy Performer for Chris Langham at the 2005 British Comedy Awards, and won Best Situation Comedy and Best Comedy Performance, also for Langham (although Peter Capaldi was also nominated), at the 2006 BAFTAs.
The series can be described as the 21st century's answer to Yes Minister, highlighting the struggles of the media and spin doctors against civil servants. Iannucci himself describes it as "Yes Minister meets Larry Sanders". The former civil servant Martin Sixsmith is an adviser to the writing team, giving some of the storylines an element of realism to them. In particular, the character of Malcolm Tucker bears a distinct resemblance to former Director of Communications and Strategy Alastair Campbell, a comparison Campbell himself has acknowledged.
A feature film spin-off, In the Loop, was released in the UK on 17 April 2009.

‘Firmly established as a jewel in the BBC's comedy crown..’ The Daily Mail

“It remains by a long distance the finest mainstream British sitcom of recent years...’ The Guardian

Herein lies all four series and the 2009 Christmas special of Britain’s favourite comedy series, Outnumbered. That’s four school years of spookily familiar and often bafflingly surreal family dilemmas, traversed by Pete and Sue Brockman and their brood.

From the seemingly innocent, “can I have a biscuit?” to progressive theological debate, “what would Jesus do if someone stole his mobile?” Outnumbered has redefined the family comedy by bringing it closer to home.

Early Doors Series 2 The welcome return of the gentle, critically acclaimed comedy set entirely in The Grapes, a small pub in the North of England. Into this warm, slightly hopeless environment come a group of lovable characters who like a pint, but more than that, like each other. Lads Joe and Duffy command centre table and most of the conversation, largely at the expenses of landlord Ken's less acute regulars, such as Eddie, for whom a change in the town's traffic flow can become a preoccupation. Meanwhile, Ken's preoccupation is how his stepdaughter Melanie will respond to having met her real dad, while local policemen Nige and Phil show their concern over the level of crime in the neighbourhood by listening to police radio in the comfort of Ken's snug. Overhearing their conversations and reliving the events in each of their lives is both moving and amusing.

Peep Show

Meet Mark and Jeremy, twenty-something former Dartmouth University alumni (although Jez technically never finished his degree) and slightly fucked-up denizens of Apollo House, South London.
Mark is the sensible one: a professional brogue wearer with a slightly worrying interest in World War Two. Jeremy is the loose cannon: a lazy waster with dodgy friends, who dreams of becoming a musician, but can never get his act together, or often even get up in the morning. Their lives together have taken in smoking dope in the lazer bowl toilets, affairs, possible homosexuality, rainbow rhythms, and a broader understanding of the siege of Stalingrad and now Mark seems to be about to get hitched.
Having proposed by accident to Sophie, he now faces the horror of having to actually go through with the wedding. Or will he?? And, when Jeremy’s beautiful ex "visa wife", Nancy (Rachel Blanchard), unexpectedly turns up again, how far will he go to win her back?
Also this series, Mark spends a horrific weekend with Sophie's argumentative parents, tries to get his gym instructor sacked, and also gets involved in a spot of arson. Meanwhile, Jeremy performs some "handy" work for a male pop star, does something pretty unspeakable to a dog and, worst of all, sleeps with Sophie's mother

Jasper Carrott

Jasper Carrott O.B.E. - A Brief Biography

His first performance of note was as resident compére at the Boggery Folk Club in Solihull. There he discovered his talent for comedy, and his inability to sing, and the rest, as they say, is history.
In 1975 Jasper released his first single. Funky Moped / Magic Roundabout, was a massive chart hit, selling almost a million copies and narrowly missing a Gold Disc. Jasper’s first television appearance was in The Golden Game for BBC Midlands, in 1975.
His first television series was aired in 1978, 'An Audience with Jasper Carrott' for LWT, a series of six shows. The show title was then purloined for the hour-long celebrity shows with which we are now all familiar.
In 1979 Jasper was named as ITV Personality Of The Year. This remains unique as a live to air one hour comedy show.
From 1979 onwards Jasper's national and international tours have taken him to many corners of the world.

Reggie Perrin with Martin Clunes

In the 1970s, sitcoms were king on British TV and among the most regal of these was The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin. It starred the late Leonard Rossiter as a businessman in the throes of a mid-life crisis. More than 30 years later, the show has been remade with Martin Clunes in the title role. Much of the humour of the original came from recurring jokes that heightened Reggie's growing exasperation at the absurdity of his monotonous life. Reggie's ridiculously pompous boss CJ, the "farting" chairs in his office, Perrin's "hippo" of a mother-in-law, all pushed Reggie further and further towards the edge. Simon Nye, creator of Men Behaving Badly in which Clunes also starred, has written the updated version, closely assisted by David Nobbs, the brains behind the original.

The Inbetweeners

Combine the juvenile smut of SUPERBAD with the cringing embarrassment of PEEP SHOW, against the 'stylish' backdrop of GRANGE HILL, and what do you get? E4's hilarious comedy THE INBETWEENERS. A super sharp, one-liner packed celebration of the highs and lows of being a teenager. Perfectly capturing the relentless disappointment of suburban adolescence, the show's four main characters yearn for sex, booze and cheap thrills, without the emotional maturity, money or ID to get them. Briefcase-carrying nerd Will (Simon Bird) has recently left the relative sophistication of private school to join Rudge Park Comprehensive, where he befriends Simon (Joe Thomas), Jay (James Buckley) and Neil (Blake Harrison); a group precariously straddling the social gulf between the in-crowd and the outcasts.


From karaoke, pub quizzes and mobility-scooter duels to bull fights and arm-wrestling competitions, it’s a fiesta of fun in this scorching comedy. With middle-aged swingers Jacqueline and Donald; the Garveys - Janice and Mick, their chain-smoking mum, Madge and teenage mum Telle; hairdressers Gavin and Troy; newlyweds Martin and his reluctant wife Kate, and ‘The Oracle’ and his mum, there’s plenty of scandal and silliness to go round.

Gavin and Stacey

This BBC comedy sitcom Gavin and Stacey features a romantic, off-beat, boy-meets-girl story.

Little Britain

"Britain, Britain, Britain, land of technological achievement. We've had running water for over 10 years, an underground tunnel that links us to Peru, and we invented the cat," narrates Tom Baker gleefully at the beginning of Little Britain, introducing the first hit show for fledgling digital channel BBC3 and the best new British comedy since The League of Gentlemen.
Read our interview with Lucas and Walliams.
In fact, creators and stars Matt Lucas and David Walliams acknowledge a large debt to the League, not only in the gallery of grotesques all performed by the duo, but also in the way in which the familiar sketch-show format is expanded by clever use of locale: not Royston Vasey here, but "Britain" itself in all its perverse splendor: from Darkly Noon, where chavette Vicky Pollard seems all too frighteningly real ("Yeah, but no, but yeah. Shut up!"), to the Welsh village with only one gay, to the council estate where buck-toothed Lou looks after apparently wheelchair-bound Andy ("Yeah, I know"), to Kelsey Grammar School where pupils are baffled and confused by their fusty teacher, and many more besides. It's unashamedly puerile stuff and, as with The Fast Show before it, many sketches rely on a single incident or catchphrase repeated over and over in only slightly different contexts. But it works brilliantly, thanks to the characterizations of Lucas and Walliams, their sharp eye for the eccentricities of modern life, and of course that surreal voiceover from Tom Baker. Another triumph for Auntie Beeb.

Ricky Gervais

Features three Ricky Gervais stand-up shows: Animals, Politics, and Fame. Animals sees Ricky Gervais gives his own unique insight into the animal kingdom, Politics sees Gervais discuss Thora Hird and being mistaken for Johnny Vegas, while Fame finds Gervais discusses his fame and the resulting complications that occur.

The Office

BAFTA winning comedy about the Slough paper-merchant where life is stationary...David Brent (Ricky Gervais) is a petty, pompous boss who thinks he's the funniest, most popular man in the world. Pedantic jobs worth Gareth (Mackenzie Crook) agrees with him.They're both wrong.Tim (Martin Freeman) really is popular and funny but the joke is on him, as he's stuck in the middle of their little world - a world in which he hates everything except the receptionist Dawn (Lucy Davis). Will Tim escape? Will Dawn choose the right man? Will MI6 ever call on Gareth to help them out? And will David Brent ever regret letting a film crew Into The Office?

The IT Crowd

This show is about two IT professionals (Geeks) who work in the basement of a very successful company. When they are called on for help, they are never treated with any respect at all.

Alexei Sayle

He became the first compère at the Comedy Store and gained widespread TV recognition, especially through his regular appearances in The Young Ones. His strong persona was well-suited to television and Alexei Sayle's Stuff, his first starring vehicle, reached screens in 1988. At the heart of the show were Sayle's trademark monologues to camera, which offered a showcase for his engaging stand-up style. Usually filmed on location in a variety of settings, they would cover a wide range of subjects and observations and provide a through-narrative for each episode.


This witty, instantly addictive British series could also be called Chaps or Squelchy in the City. Coupling charts the tangled sex lives of a close-knit group comprising "exes and best friends": womanizer Jack, hapless nice guy Steve, "strange and disturbing" Jeff, uninhibited Susan, neurotic Sally, and manipulative Jane. Coupling may inspire feelings of déjà-vu. The obvious frame of reference is Friends (Steve and Susan are the Ross-Rachel equivalent), but this series also echoes Seinfeld in its coinage of catch-phrases (although it's doubtful that "the boyfriend zone" will replace "master of your domain") and plotlines (in episode one, Steve tries to dump Jane, who refuses to accept). But Coupling has its own fresh and provocative takes on relationships. At one point, a furious Susan discovers that Patrick not only had a videotape of the former couple having sex, but that he also taped over her.

Ali G

So just who is Ali G, and how did he get on TV?

In his own words: "Me woz born in da heart off da Staines ghetto. I has lived wiv me Nan in Staines at 37 Cherry Blossom Close from da day me woz born, coz wiv both me parents havin been smoked, dere werent no one else around to look afta her.

I iz now easily da most respekted face on Brittish telly and it iz probably only a matter off time before me get offered me own slot on Channel 5 - or hopefully even cable..."

Al Murray

The Pub Landlord is a stereotypical working class British nationalist with a dislike for anything "un-British". He has a particular dislike of Germans and the French; he will challenge the audience to name any country in the world before producing some plausible instance of Britain bettering it. Catchphrases include "All hail to the ale!", "...beautiful British name!", "Time-waster!", "You DISGUST me!", "Pint for the fella... Glass of white wine/ fruit-based drink for the lady!", "The Point is this..." "if we had no rules where would we be? : France! and if we had too may rules where would we be?: Germany!", "Is your dad proud of you, son? He's never said so, has he?" and "I was never confused", which is an allusion to a supposed gay interlude in his character's early identity.


If you've heard of QI, the chances are that you've heard of the BBC2 comedy panel quiz of the same name, hosted by Stephen Fry. Unlike any other quiz show you will have failed to avoid catching, QI's questions are impossible to answer, but at least the guest panel of top-shelf comedians can laugh at themselves (and the universe in general) while trying.
"It is easily the best show on television". Jeremy Clarkson, The Sun.
"It is a show bursting with intelligence, originality and fun, as refreshing as a line of Colombians in an ice-cold shower- and perfect for smart-arses like myself who think they know everything". Dominik Diamond, Daily Star.
The comedy quiz that refreshes the parts other shows don’t even have names for.

Two pints of lager and a packet of crisps

Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps is the smuttier, stupider sitcom descendent of Men Behaving Badly, the series tells the story of five twentysomethings--the loveable Johnny (The Royle Family's Ralf Little), his libidinous sidekick Gaz (Will Mellor), their long-suffering girlfriends Janet (Sheridan Smith) and Donna (Natalie Casey), and a token comedy-weirdo Louise (Kathryn Drysdale)--doing their best to fathom life's hardships through endless discussions about sex, booze and relationships.

Mighty Boosh

Join Howard moon and Vince Noir on their mad capped and surreal capers: from their origins in series 1 as Zoo keepers through to working in a Boutique shop in Dalston in series 3. They are joined by a host of characters, both friend and foe like Bolo the gorilla and Naboo the shamen, the terrifying crack fox and cockney nightmare, the hitcher.

Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse

After many, many years apart, it’s genuinely great to see comedy heroes Paul Whitehouse and Harry Enfield reunited for a brand new sketch show. And while Ruddy Hell! It’s Harry and Paul! doesn’t really come close to touching the brilliance of their work in the 1990s, there’s still quite a lot to enjoy. Comedy chums Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse reunite for this hilarious sketch show, populated by all-new characters.


The British phenomenon and 2007 Emmy winner Ricky Gervais, founder of BBCs original The Office, stars in the hilariously funny series Extras! Watch the story unfold as Ricky Gervais plays a lowly film extra, Andy Millman, who makes his mark in the background while the stars do their work. Both Seasons of the hit series Extras and a 90 minute series finale! Extras: The show with big, big stars and Andy Millman.

Harry Enfield

Comedian Harry Enfield, perhaps best known for his role on Men Behaving Badly , starred in a new series beginning in 2000, Brand Spanking New Show. A collection of character sketches that reveal a much more adult edge than Enfield had shown previously, this DVD presents the best moments from the show's first season.

The Detectives

The Detectives is a comedy programme that spoofs other cop programmes. It features Jasper Carrott as Detective Bob Louis and his partner, Detective David Briggs played by Robert Powell, as well as their Superintendent, Frank Cottam, played by George Sewell. Both Louis and Briggs were fairly incompetent, but at the end of the episode had solved the crime hanging on to their jobs, nearly being fired fairly often. Louis was more downbeat, whereas Briggs tried to emulate the gung-ho cops shown on TV and in film.

Catherine Tate

The Catherine Tate Show is an award winning Comedy sketch series shown on BBC2. The series stars Catherine Tate as a variety of different characters

Lee Evans

Evans rose to fame during the 1990s, becoming noted for his loud, hot, sweaty, energetic on-stage performances, humorous voices and very physical observational comedy. He is regarded as having a Norman Wisdom style of slapstick comedy acting, and in many respects has taken on Wisdom's role for a later generation.[citation needed] In his earlier work, he often used a dysfunctional character called Malcolm to illustrate how he viewed unusual characters in the world.


Meet Gareth Blackstock, award winning chef and prat par excellence. He is insufferably rude to everyone, and yet, all is forgotten and forgiven the moment anyone tastes one of his delicious creations. Although he is thoughtful and caring deep down, it is beneath a thick layer of self absorption and a pure workaholic mentality as he struggles like an artist with his vocation and love: cooking. This passion is the basis of all that is wrong with his character, as he demands nothing short of perfection from himself, and hence, of others as well. He is driven to create and give his career ever ounce of energy he has, to the detriment of his social graces as well as his relationship with Janice, his wife.

The Fast Show

Will the Insecure Woman ever stop worrying about the size of her bum? Who can forget the sleazy Suit You Sir salesmen, Competitive Dad always trying to score over his children, the permanently inebriated Rowley Birkin QC, slimy used car dealer Swiss Toni and Ralph, the restrained and sexually repressed lord of the manor who tries to reveal his passion for the gamekeeper Ted by making small talk. The Fast Show is arguably one of the most influential British comedy series ever. First screened in 1994 the show gave new life to the sketch show format with its quick fire catchphrase based comedy. Delivering the classic lines are Paul Whitehouse, Charlie Higson, Simon Day, Mark Williams, John Thomson, Arabella Weir and Caroline Aherne.


Happiness is Paul Whitehouse's first foray into the world of comedy drama and sees him playing Danny Spencer, a recently widowed minor celebrity in the midst of a midlife crisis. He writes and voices a cartoon character called Dexter (a kung-fu nurse bear). Danny is unhappy that he's loved more for his creation Dexter than for himself. Will he ever rediscover the happiness that he lost with his wife's death?

That Mitchell and Webb look

Innovative, BAFTA and British Comedy Award-winning comedians Robert Webb and David Mitchell return to in the wake of the cult hit sitcom, Peep Show, with a hilarious new sketch show, That Mitchell & Webb Look.
Full of strange and wonderful characters, The Daily Telegraph describes the series as "pure comedy gold," raving, "keep this up, they'll be making Gervais and co. look like the warm-up act."
Writing the series mainly in David's bedroom, the comedy duo claims influences from Monty Python to Peter Cook and Spike Milligan. "The thing we are most proud of is the fact we've written most of the material ourselves and we've always wanted to work with the sketch show format," says David.

The Royle Family

On the surface, The Royle Family appeared to be humdrum and low on incident - but such ordinary appearances belie the fact that it was a groundbreaking work of exceptional comedy invention.
Writers Craig Cash and Caroline Aherne's knack of capturing every nuance of character and dialogue made the sitting room of the titular Royles a must-see for an ever-growing audience. Viewers simply dropped in to this Northern family's conversations and watched them channel-hop and discuss various everyday subjects.
Family patriarch Jim Royle is master of his space - unafraid to rearrange his nether regions, pick his nose or fart, regardless of the company. Ricky Tomlinson embraces the part with gusto, making Jim's oft delivered "My arse" a national catchphrase

Green Green Grass ( Only Fools Spin off )

The Green, Green Grass follows the time-honoured fish-out-of-water format, our hero having been forced to flee Peckham, with wife Marlene and son Tyler in tow, after grassing-up infamous local villains the Driscoll Brothers.
Now he is stuck in Shropshire, desperately trying to become a gentleman farmer as his staff – cunning farm manager Elgin Sparrowhawk, serially-lovestruck herdsman Bryan and dim ploughman Jed – try desperately to separate him from all that car-dealing cash he's amassed and neighbour, Llewellyn, just desperately dislikes him.
Meanwhile, Boycie's family are less than enamoured by their new surroundings.

Stella Street

In an effort to escape the pressures of stardom, some of the world's most famous celebrities move to The Good Life country, Surbiton, to a nondescript Stella Street. Michael Caine, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci and Dustin Hoffman all live down this road, along with other celebrities, oh and some ordinary working class people as well. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards own, and work in, the corner shop. Everyone gets along, after a fashion, until a financial advisor persuades everyone to hand over control of their finances to him. When this goes horribly wrong, the stars decide their old lifestyle wasn't so bad after all!

Peter Kay

Includes the Peter Kay live titles Live at the Top of the Tower and Live at the Bolton Albert Halls.

3 Discs

Spaced is a sitcom like no other. The premise is simple enough: Daisy (Jessica Stevenson) and Tim (Simon Pegg) are out of luck and love, so pretend to be a couple in order to rent a flat together. Downstairs neighbour and eccentric painter Brian suspects someone's fibbing, and almost blows their cover with their lecherous lush of a landlady, Marsha. Fortunately he soon falls for Daisy's health-freak friend Twist, while Daisy herself goes ga-ga for pet dog Colin. Tim remains happily platonic with lifemate Mike; a sweet-at-heart guns 'n' ammo obsessive. The series is chock-full of pop culture references. In fact, each episode is themed after at least one movie, with nods to The Shining and Close Encounters of the Third Kind proving especially hilarious. Hardly five minutes goes by without a Star Wars reference, and every second of screen time from Bill Bailey as owner of the comic shop where Tim works is comedic gold. The look of the series is its other outstanding element, with slam-zooms, dizzying montages, and inspired lighting effects (often paying homage to the Evil Dead movies). It's an affectionate fantasy on the life of the twenty-something that's uncomfortably close to the truth.

The second series finds the gang at 23 Meteor Street a little older, but definitely none the wiser. Tim's career is hampered by severe hang-ups over The Phantom Menace. Daisy's career is just plain non-existent. There is still a spark of sexual tension between them, but it's overshadowed by Brian and Twist getting it on. Propelling the seven-episode series arc is the threat of Marsha discovering that none of the relationships are what they seem, Mike's increasing jealousy and a new love interest for Tim. That's the basis for a never-ending stream of in-jokes and references that easily match the quality of the first series. Tim has a Return of the Jedi flashback, then déjà vu in reliving the end of The Empire Strikes Back. There are spoofs of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Robocop, The Sixth Sense and comedy rival The Royle Family. There are guest spots from Bill Bailey, Peter (voice of Darth Maul) Serafinowicz and The League of Gentlemen's Mark Gatiss and Reece Shearsmith. Every episode is packed with highlights, but this series' guaranteed geek pant-wetting moments have to be the mock gun battles, slagging off Babylon 5 and learning that "The second rule of Robot Club is: no smoking." Jessica Stevenson won a British Comedy Award for this year. It deserved a whole lot more

Written by the acclaimed team of Galton and Simpson (Hancock, Steptoe and Son, Citizen James), the series was inspired by Dennis Potter’s more-serious, if more naked, Casanova. Little did they realise the scandal that would result when TV watchdog Mary Whitehouse rallied her troops. Casanova ’73 would not see ‘74. Now, for the first time on DVD, audiences can once again enjoy Leslie Phillips at the top of his form, bringing his theatrically-honed skills to Casanova ’73, filmed before a live audience, with all the hilarity of 70’s British Farce at its height.
