Episode 6: Meet the Richardsons

Summary

After a gig with Dane Baptiste, Jon tries to meet his all-time hero Marcelo Bielsa. Alex Brooker visits Jon's pub and Lucy and her mum film a new TV show with Mrs Barbara Nice (Janice Connolly).

Review

Comedian Jon Richardson is in a deep slough of despond. He’s getting older, but he’s not getting funnier, and on top of that he has writer’s block, so he can’t come up with the new material he needs to go on tour.

In another gently absurd, funny, frequently filthy slice of life, Jon gazes into the abyss where his career used to be, while his wife Lucy Beaumont goes from strength to strength as she films a pilot TV show with her saucy mum, Gill.

What Jon really needs is a bit of time alone, so he books a holiday cottage in Wetherby – from where he stalks his hero, Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa. What could possibly go wrong? Quite a lot.
