Comedy Rush Hour
Starts Monday 19 March, 10.30pm on BBC THREE
It's called Rush Hour, but fear not! Neither Jackie Chan nor Chris Tucker are involved.
Look around you during the daily scrum and you see some pretty disturbed drivers and peculiar passengers as they argue, flirt and bicker their way round the rat run.
Rush Hour features a brace of comedians (that is the collective noun, we checked): Adam Buxton, Sanjeev Kohli, Miranda Hart, Frankie Boyle, David Armand, Marek Larwood, Kerry Godliman, Bruce McKinnon and Katy Wix.
Jolyon the Shock Rocker is the lead singer of Black Metal collective, DogFist. He's also a fifteen-year-old posh boy who has to be driven everywhere by his mummy.
Jolyon writes songs like Stab Horse, his cleverly disguised critique of American foreign policy. A song his mummy loves, because she thinks it's about a pony jumping around in a field.
There's also Ian The Pervy Boss. A balding 50-something business man who likes to give his PA a lift to work every morning, and tries to impress her with a few of his best lines.
Frank is a cabbie who hasn't got a good word to say about anyone. He hates them Samoans, them Amish, them Pygmies, them Eskimos, them Incas, them Vikings, them Giants. And don't get him started on them Babylonians.
Chantaigne thinks she's famous after her one, incredibly brief, appearance on X-Factor - during which she forgot all the words to Sacrifice, her nipple popped out of her blouse and she called Sharon a 'toilet.' But it did get her a mention in Heat, and that's enough for Chantaigne.
Now, she mistakenly thinks she gets recognized wherever she goes, and is more than willing to give an impromptu performance to 'the little people.'
Other characters include the tactless AA man, who offers unwanted relationship and life advice as well as automobile assistance; the competitive mums, who compete over their children's achievements; University of Life Dad, who's determined to teach his young son some of the harsher lessons in life; and an evil lollipop lady.
