Bobby Ball guests as Lee’s wastrel dad, who arrives at the flat – almost top to toe in plaster – to throw himself upon his son’s mercy. But Lee’s mercy is strained, non-existent, even, particularly when dad needs a painkiller that cannot be taken orally and which has to be inserted, ahem, elsewhere.
You’ll have gathered that this is comedy as broad as the M62. Luckily, Lee Mack just about gets away with a stream of gags about backsides; some are genuinely funny, some are just rank. If it’s sophistication you’re after, it’s probably best to look elsewhere.
Lee is looking forward to a lazy weekend when his dad turns up on the doorstep, looking for somewhere to stay having just come out of hospital - and in need of someone to care for him. Bobby Ball guest stars, with Lee Mack and Sally Bretton.
