Lead Balloon

First Aired: October 4th 2006
Status: Continuing
Runtime: 30 minutes

Jack Dee stars as Rick Spleen, a successful but world-weary stand-up comedian who spends too much of his time hosting corporate events. He and Marty, his American co-writer, spend their days arguing, drinking too much coffee, and devising work avoidance strategies. Further distractions are provided by Magda, Rick's home help, his show-biz agent wife Mel, their teenage daughter Sam and her feckless boyfriend Ben.
Lead Balloon is co-written by Jack Dee and Pete Sinclair.
