The series focuses on Alfie Wickers (Jack Whitehall), a posh, newly graduated secondary school History teacher at the fictional Abbey Grove School, in Watford or Tring, Hertfordshire. Ever determined to impress his crush, Rosie Gulliver (Sarah Solemani), Alfie makes repeated efforts to appear "cool", such as coaching the school football team, organising a weapons amnesty and fielding a candidate for the school elections. Usually, in these efforts, he turns to his mismatched class for help, despite them often disapproving of his actions. They are teacher's pet Joe, tough guy Mitchell, wheelchair-bound rudeboy Rem Dog, inappropriately flirtatious Chantelle, camp Stephen, studious Jing and outwardly fiery Cleopatra.
Chris Distefano: Size 38 Waist is a hilarious and personal hour in which the Brooklyn native expounds on his fast-gentrifying home borough, fatherhood, and his open-minded outlook despite a conservative upbringing. At once a charmer and the product of a grittier New York, Distefano examines Brooklyn’s new and old with a mindset similarly caught in between.
James Davis: Live From The Town is a raucous hour of comedy that puts Davis’s second-to-none stage presence and crowd engagement on full display. With a captivating delivery that keeps his audience hanging on his every word, Davis shows incredible range, including an impression of Barack Obama as a party DJ; the invention of Barbecue Davis, his professional golf alter-ego; dissections of social topics from #MeToo to police violence; and hilarious commentary on everything from “pimp uncles” to getting his car keyed.
