Cuckoo

Series 1 - 3. Ken on E

Radio Times
Review by:
Claire Webb

This week, Ken’s political dreams are dashed when his son beats up the son of a local Liberal Democrat. To add to his woes, his well-meaning wife has suggested a boys’ night in with his hippy son-in-law, who wants to explore Ken’s mind calendar. The evening progresses terribly, naturally, until Ken accidentally pops a couple of dodgy painkillers, declares his undying love and is soon boogying the night away dressed like one of Dexys Midnight Runners.

Comedian Greg Davies, who plays Ken, rarely underplays a gag, but tonight his demented capers put one in mind of a male Miranda (albeit
a rather manic Miranda). Far and away the funniest episode so far.

About this programme

3/6. Ken stands for local government as a Lib Dem councillor, but Dylan commits a violent act and ruins everything, leaving it to Cuckoo to save the day. Comedy, starring Greg Davies, Andy Samberg and Tyger Drew-Honey.
