Six-part comedy drama slash sitcom spin-off from Peter Kay's award-winning Phoenix Nights series. The stars are door men Max and Paddy who take to the open road in their prized motor home and wreak havoc across the country. Living in such a confined space proves more difficult than they first thought and, without any suitable home entertainment, they end up sampling the local nightlife where Max's new dance moves are a hit with the infamous Belgrano sisters.

BSG Review:

"Max and Paddy" lacks the certain something that made Phoenix Nights so special however it is still far from bad. There are plenty of laughs scatted through each half-hour, Kay certainly hasn't forgotten how to be funny. The Navy boy dance routine, camping outside Big Ben and sleeping in the woods - the comedy certainly moves at a pace.


Phoenix Nights (original)


Channel 4 would like to commission a second series however Peter Kay is working on some other projects first.
