Review: Sex Education, Netflix
The second series of the sparky school comedy starts off with Otis finally mastering the art of masturbation. And it turns out that for Otis wanking is a bit like Pringles. Once you've popped you can... more
Live Review: Flo & Joan, Soho Theatre
Flo & Joan's publicist asked me to ensure that I put an ampersand and not the full word "and" between their names when I wrote this review. I guess the musical comedy duo want to exert the same... more
TV Review: The Tuckers, BBC One Wales, Episode Two
The second episode of this new comedy set in the Welsh valleys finds the working class Tucker family trying to offload a shedload of hooky Chateauneuf-du-Pap. Surely it'll be a doddle making a few... more

TV: Upright, Sky Atlantic
Tim Minchin's new comedy drama takes him back to Australia. The multi-talented comedian plays a character called Lucky Flynn, although he doesn't seem that lucky in the first episode. The episode... more
TV: Vic & Bob's Big Night Out, BBC4
Vic and Bob's return to the Big Night Out format on BBC4 seems to have invigorated them. In the first show of the second four-part run there are moments that are every bit as funny as their early... more
Review: Ladhood, BBC Three
Comedian Liam Williams has been mining his nothern childhood ever since he broke through and built up a cult following at the Edinburgh Fringe. Now, after a radio series with the same name, here's a... more
