S2-E5 The Man Show

Catch Up


You could argue that the Croydon flat Mark (David Mitchell) and Jez (Robert Webb) share is a “giant kid farm”. But that’s also the description Mark uses for the soft-play centre he takes Ian (his son with Sophie) before things turn pear-shaped (surprise, surprise) when the youngster goes missing.

Meanwhile, Jeremy and Matt King’s deliciously-realised anarchic druggie Super Hans are coming to blows over the rights to a long-forgotten music track they wrote together in the 1990s and which has become an unexpected hit in Germany. Will this (no doubt unwarranted) success for Jez cause tension with Hans? Well, of course it will…


Sophie tells Mark she and Jeff are moving in together, and the blow is compounded when she reveals she has been asked her to spend less time with him. Meanwhile, Jeremy becomes concerned about how his glum friend is coping with depression. Starring David Mitchell and Robert Webb.
