Lead Balloon, Series 3
Open iTunes to preview or buy TV programmes.
The hapless comedian Rick Spleen returns for a third series - he's a man who can deal with any situation - badly. Despite the professional and domestic crises, Rick manages to hold his head up high and retain that self-respect. Well, actually, no he doesn't - getting the worst score of all time on a much-loved radio panel show, and the revealing of his real name on a show about family trees certainly does away with any remaining pride. Domestic chaos, social mishaps and professional disasters ensue as Rick continues to blunder his way through life. Comedy starring Jack Dee, Sean Power and Raquel Cassidy.
