    JOSH WIDDICOMBE’S PILOT AIRS ON BBC

    Sometimes life just isn’t fair. For Josh, sometimes feels like always. Dumped by his fiancée, Josh is forced to return to his old flat-share with Owen, the most romantic and lyrical Welshman since records began (and that includes Tom Jones) and Kate, who spends her life pursuing every trend from A to Zumba. All Josh wants is a night in with his flatmates to get over his heartbreak, but instead he is left alone to face Geoff, a shoo-in for this year's Most Irritating Landlord Award, and a local barmaid who's convinced Josh is "on the spectrum"... the Local Weirdo/Serial Killer spectrum.

    OFF THE KERB ARE PLEASED TO WELCOME PHIL JERROD TO THE STABLE

    Phil Jerrod began his stand-up career underneath an Angus Steakhouse in 2012. Since then he has failed his PhD, walked out of his job in publishing and been entertaining audiences up and down the country with his elegant rants on the often unfathomable problems of modern life.

  • FURTHER REVIEWS IN FOR CHEAP SHOTS AT THE DEFENCELESS

    There's a case to be made that John Gordillo is one of the key shapers of our modern comedy landscape. His may not be a widely recognised name (he's probably best known as the presenter of topical BBC comedy show The RDA, a brilliant oddity that lives long in the memory), but as a writer, director and benevolent svengali he's helped to set many a major stand-up star on the road to greatness. In his own right, he's a spectacularly creative comic, offering sets that use politics, romance and family relationships as jumping-off points for wildly ambitious social theorising and sparkily funny comedy. He produces shows that genuinely make you think in a whole new way while keeping you laughing throughout. His last solo show, Fuckonomics – proposing a new economic theory based on our desire for sex – was one of the most intellectually ambitious offerings the fringe has seen in recent years.
    - The Guardian
    John Gordillo is one of the smartest men in comedy. A brilliant combination and examination of the fake personal and the real personal. Typically intelligent, at times extraordinarily frank... this is quality, brain-food comedy. A great hour.
    - Scotland on Sunday
    An arresting and perceptive hour from a stand up who truly gets at the nub of a creeping malaise with a message that ought to give anyone pause for thought.
    - The Scotsman
