This one-off has slipped into the schedules without much of a fanfare. Which I'm surprised about because it is fronted by the breakout star of The Mash Report, Rachel Parris.

In fact it is co-written by Parris and comedian Tom Neenan, who was also involved in The Mash Report so don't be shocked if there is a bit of a stylistic overlap.

Interview: Rarely Asked Questions – Rachel Parris

Rachel Parris is a comedian on the cusp. In the last few years she has started cropping up regularly on television and I expect she will be cropping up even more in the future. She was in The IT Crowd and Revolting. She was also in Murder In Successville. Or you may know her from the Game Of Thrones spin-off, Thronecast (update 2018 - she is now in The Mash Report). The versatile performer is also part of stage improvisation group Austentatious. You want songs, stories and jokes?
