DVD & Blu-ray review: PhoneShop: Series 2 (15)

Phil Bowker DVD (175mins)

This crass – sometimes inspired – comedy is blessed by the presence of Emma Fryer, a gifted comedienne whose promising 2009 sitcom Home Time was cruelly curtailed. Her deluded mobile-phone saleswoman, Janine, is trying to climb the Croydon social scene, while her equally deluded four male colleagues attempt a series of a calamitous sidelines, including escorting. Janine's catastrophic date with a socially awkward busker is a highlight, and Razz's deranged return is terrific.
