The Grumpy Guide To

Tuesday 10th April 10.10pm

Comedy

In the second part of the ‘school days’ special, the Grumpies continue to reflect on what they considered to be a prison sentence. Mark Radcliffe thought his school days were a mix of sadism and insanity, Neil Morrissey pretended to be the class psycho, whilst Al Murray remembers the horrors of being at the back with the fat kid in PE.

Driving

Cars. Why is it that we are obsessed with them when we all know it’s virtually impossible to get anywhere by road when relying on four wheels? City centres grind to a halt. Motorways crawl at a snail’s pace. And if by some miracle you actually get to where you’re going, you’ve got to play Russian roulette to find that one parking space where you can only stay two hours till some warden slaps you with a massive fine. The frustrations of driving are legion: avoiding those loony Lycra clad louts, dodging speed cameras and hoping some bloody learner driver won’t take a pot shot at you. It’s no wonder our Grumpies see red.

Driving

Driving is one of the most successful ways to induce grumpiness with numerous blood-pressure-raising elements and the uncanny ability to turn any normally passive person into a road-raging wreck. This brand new Grumpy Guide programme gets our Grumpies seeing red as they cover topics including misguiding sat navs, infuriating back seat drivers, the hell that is inner-city gridlock and how it’s not fine to get a fine.

Money

If there’s word that Grumpies can’t stand, it’s bling, with all those people in diamonds and silly fast cars showing off. And what about those city boys in their stripy jackets yakking on about pork bellies and writing off your pension funds? Don’t get Grumpies started on banks. Why does it still take three days to put money into your account? The lid is lifted on the baffling world of finance, with a few tips on how to get your own back on those wicked credit card companies on the way.
