High Street Rubbery

It’s not too often I get enthusiastic about anything.

We are, after all, merely transient beings, destined to turn to dust after varying periods of painful individual decline and a brief collective spell on planet earth, spent screwing it up for as many other species as possible.

However, when it comes to the brilliant PhoneShop, I make an exception. And here’s why…

After a hugely successful pilot as part of Channel 4’s Comedy Showcase season, this razorsharp sitcom about a high street phoneshop begins its full series premiere on E4 next Thursday.

And it gets better – you don’t need to wait until then! You can watch the opening episode right here, right now on 4oD.

PhoneShop features a superb ensemble cast that includes Martin Trenaman as Lance, the shop manager. Martin also stars in another sitcom from 4 that’s doing rather well – the multi award-winning Inbetweeners.

And in a further example of Connect 4, the new series of PhoneShop features cameo support from Channel 4 and E4’s slipperiest customer, the upwardly mobile Kayvan Novak.

Who’s he? Well, you might not recognise the name but you’ll… Actually, you might not recognise the face, either. Here’s a clue, involving four genuine Come Dine with Me contestants and the one and only Terry Tibbs.

Enjoy! Life’s too short not to, remember?

    I’d be inclined to comply with you here. Which is not something I usually do! I love reading a post that will make people think. Also, thanks for allowing me to speak my mind!
