There’s no point looking to
Not Going Out
for bold surprises or multi-layered comic finesse. What it delivers are sharp, uncomplicated laughs, laced with a good-natured smuttiness perfect for Friday nights.
And the key words in that sentence are “it delivers”. If you don’t like one gag, there’ll be another along momentarily, probably also revolving around misunderstandings or double meanings. Hence tonight, Lee (Lee Mack) is concerned about his nether regions, and Lucy is keen for him to examine himself properly. “Do you ever check yourself, er… downstairs?” she enquires daintily, to which Lee replies, “Yeah – until the woman downstairs tells me to get out.”
It is, Lee explains “not the bratwurst but the brussels sprouts” that are causing concern, which leads to a lovely series of scenes with friend Tim as they try to establish the size sprouts should in fact be.
Lucy works on a government health initiative encouraging men to regularly check themselves for lumps, so an eager Lee follows the campaign's advice - only to discover something unexpected. Comedy, starring Sally Bretton, Lee Mack, Tim Vine and Katy Wix.
