Thought this was worthy of a thread of its own.

Hebburn is a warm and affectionate tale of north east family life. It tells the tale of the Pearson family and their impetuous and ambitious son, Jack, who has left Tyneside for the bright lights and glamour of Manchester. He has secretly married a middle class Jewish girl, Sarah, and realises that it is about time he introduced her to his family.

 

Jim Moir (aka Vic Reeves) and Gina McKee play Jason's parents, Joe and Pauline, who are devoted to their family and their hometown.

 

Jan Ravens and Phil Nice star as Sarah's parents, Susan and Ben, who have to contend with their daughter marrying into a family from a very different background.

 

Other characters include Jack's fun-loving sister Vicki; his Grandmother, Dot, who likes to keep everyone 'up to speed' on her bowel movements; Sarah's hippy sister, Marial; Jack's 'larger than life' friend, Big Keith; and Vicki's best friend, Denise and her boyfriend Gervaise.

 

Writer Jason Cook also stars in the series as 'Ramsey', a friend of Jack.

 

Really looking forward to this as I've saw him live about 5 times and every time he's been absolutely fantastic. Especially as I've only saw him locally and all of his humour has been Tyneside centric so I'm sure we'll all be able to relate to it in someway.

Tooj has always had good taste in comedy.

 

This is not only really well written with a talented cast, but Jason has the backing of people like Henry Normal and Graham Duff to make the finished product.

 

google them if you're not sure who they are and what other stuff they have done.

Hi Chris

That is soooooooo funny.

 

Maybe someone with your planetary sized sense of comedy creativity should come up with a quip far better than that?

 

FYI I am not Christ Ramsey I'm far more integral to Hebburn that he is.
