Synopsis:
Jack Dee is world-weary stand-up Rick Spleen in a magnificent comedy of embarrassment, frustration and disillusionment. Rick Spleen is a stand-up comedian and writer, whose career has not gone the way he planned. Hosting corporate events and appearing on second-rate daytime chat shows was not what he dreamed of as a young man. Worse still, he's stuck with a lousy stage name that he chose twenty years ago. Whether he is accused of putting on weight, suspected of being gay, or worried about accidentally poisoning another performer, Rick combines a mass of neuroses and petty grievances with a terrible propensity for lying. It is not a recipe for success.
Along for the ride is his quick-talking American co-writer Marty, his unflappable partner Mel and his feckless daughter Sam. Rick also has to cope with Magda, the surly and depressive Eastern European daily help; Sam's boyfriend Ben (the lease-motivated human being on the planet) and local wholefood cafe owner Michael who appears to be completely unhinged.
