New material from Tim Key. You probably seen him as Alan Partridge’s put-upon sidekick, Sidekick Simon, in This Time with Alan Partridge, Mid-Morning Matters or Alpha Papa. Or maybe the final series of Peep Show, or contributing poems to Charlie Brooker’s Screenwipe, or the criminally underrated sketch show Cowards.
