Great Night Out

Great Night Out

Series 1 - Episode 2



This is more like it. After a shaky, tenuous, trying-a-bit-too-hard start last week, the Stockport comedy about a bunch of hapless lads hits its stride tonight. Suddenly, the likeable, daft ensemble comes into its own. There’s a real collective chemistry between the four male leads: when they wind each other up or get competitive about tiny things, we can believe they’ve been mates since for ever. The reaction tonight when Hodge (Lee Boardman — milking every comic drop from his lines) turns up for a night’s drinking in a loud yellow cardigan foisted on him by his wife feels spot on. And there are proper, splutteringly funny moments as the evening degenerates via alcohol, a string of sausages and Glyn’s new boss Mad Tony. Once again Hodge’s well-meaning but hopeless instincts land him in his wife’s bad books. She’s got a whole library.


The lads try to cheer Daz up after he has yet another row with girlfriend Colleen, but it has a detrimental effect on Glyn's first day in his new job for local gangster Mad Tony. Hodge's questionable fashion choice inadvertently lands the friends in a spot of bother. Comedy, starring Lee Boardman, William Ash, Craig Parkinson and Stephen Walters.
