Kidding 2

Jim Carrey returns to Kidding in his Golden Globe-nominated performance as the iconic children's television host, Jeff Pickles.

The second season picks up moments after Season 1's cliffhanger, and with his beloved Mr. Pickles' Puppet Time off the air for the first time in 30 years, Jeff must find a way to communicate with his many fans who still need him.

Jeff creates a new and controversial method to talk directly to children across the world only to become the target of animosity for the first time in his career.

As Jeff navigates the most complicated moral gray areas of his life, he discovers a new side of himself in a season full of music, magic, puppets and pathos.

In the Season 2 premiere, "The Cleanest Liver in Columbus, Ohio": Jeff realises that if he can tell a lie for the first time in his life he'll get everything he's ever wanted.

Outnumbered (all seasons)

Channel: BritBox
TX Time: 00h01
Genre: Comedy


Outnumbered is comedy about two parents and three young children, locked in an unequal contest.

It is a portrayal of the well-meaning parental incompetence that happens in most homes, as a beleaguered Mum and Dad attempt to raise their kids with the minimum of emotional damage for all concerned.

Three children are: Karen, a regal five-year-old girl with a talent for interrogation; seven-year-old Ben, who could out-fib Jeffrey Archer; and 11-year-old Jake who is gearing up for his scary first day at secondary school.

The Dad works in an inner city school, where a typical school holidays sees five arrested, two pregnant and one pupil shot.

Meanwhile, Mum is a part-time PA with a very demanding boss.

Other topics explored in the part-improvised show include: racism, child abuse, new age weirdness, weak bladders, death and heaven, bird 'flu, contagious diseases, bullying, obesity, parental competition, attempting romantic nights in, divorce, journalism, running away, atoms, underage drinking, gin, corn-fed organic chickens, Nazis and ratbags.

P. Diddy Presents the Bad Boys of Comedy 2

Taped in front of a live audience at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York, each edition of P. Diddy Presents The Bad Boys of Comedy highlights the comedy of four to five of what Diddy calls the "edgiest, youngest, freshest" comics in America.

Every episode also features an appearance by Diddy, who hands off the emcee duties to Doug E. Fresh to introduce each comic.

Backstage footage of Diddy and the comics before, during and after their routines are injected into each of the shows, adding spice and energy to the festivities.

In the Season 2 premiere: Comedians Drew Fraser, Damn Fool, Ian Edwards and Will-E Robo take to the stage for their performance.
