Friday Night Dinner is the first ever really funny Jewish comedy on British TV.
It’s all about a family – the Goodman family.
Each episode takes place over the course of a Friday night, as twenty-something brothers Adam (Simon Bird) and Jonny (Tom Rosenthal) return to the family home for dinner with their parents (Tamsin Greig and Paul Ritter).
It’s a post-watershed family show. Big in feel, warm but modern, quirky and very, very funny.
