Storyline

Dan drives girlfriend Lisa from London to his parents' West Country village of Bamford for the Christmas holidays. The family is eccentric and enthusiastic, to put it mildly, with plain speaking and fancy jumpers being the order of the day. Furthermore, they're all on at the couple to get married--except for jaundiced Uncle Tony, who gets Dan so stoned that his subsequent actions send Lisa back to London on her own. Fortunately the family rallies to ensure that Dan has a Gert Lush Christmas. Written by don @ minifie-1

Gert Lush - NOT
30 December 2016 | by stephenabellSee all my reviews

What a shame about this one-hour special. With the cast and one of the writers being Russell Howard, this had so much going for it... Unfortunately, it fails on so many counts.

I loved the idea of a more adult show, however, it seems as though a couple of six-year-old's (who usually do loads of funny things spontaneously, though have no real concept of humour) wrote it. The jokes were immature, which isn't always a bad thing; though, on this occasion, they were just unfunny; and the "sex" jokes were overdone and were pure drivel at it's worst.

I would recommend you do anything before watching this garbage. Even the fans of Russell Howard's (which I class myself as) would be better not to watch this, so their opinion of Russell doesn't diminish.

Please Mr Howard, no more like this.
