Not Going Out

Series 5 - 4. Running

Radio Times
Review by:
Alison Graham

Prepare to be buried in a torrent of smut when Lee takes up Lucy’s challenge to join a fun run. It sounds an unlikely source for a welter of mucky gags, but when Lee (Lee Mack) pulls a muscle during a half-hearted attempt at training, and when he hires a Polish masseuse to help, only he doesn’t realise she’s that kind of masseuse, we are pitched into Carry On type misunderstandings.

Before we know it, Lee and Tim have been arrested for kerb-crawling and end up in a brothel. Of course it doesn’t matter that they are entirely innocent of any wrongdoing; it can’t stop a flow of jokes that would make Roy Chubby Brown reach for a lace handkerchief.

About this programme

4/6. In a bid to impress Lucy, Lee prepares for a 10km fun run, only to injure himself at the start of his training. The aspiring athlete tries to hide the mishap from his flatmate and gets a secret sports massage, which inevitably leads to more trouble. Comedy, starring Lee Mack and Sally Bretton.
