Peter Kay is one of the modern age’s most loved British comedians, for his work in scripted comedy, stand up, and beyond, but in recent years he has scaled back his workload and public appearances.
This made ‘Car Share’, a show almost entirely set in a single car featuring Kay and Sian Gibson, an even bigger deal to UK audiences, and to our delight, it was another home fun for the comic legend.
This show follows a very simple premise, and mainly operates as a vehicle to allow long time collaborators Kay and Gibson to bounce off each other and improvise a lot, and it is a real success as their chemistry is great.
What’s ever better is, despite not being plot reliant and having a real ongoing narrative, you still really come to love these two characters and even start to root for a relationship you never expected by the end of this first season.
Rating = 4/5
