Growing old grudgingly

The week's comedy on demand

This week's comedy on demand:

The Kominsky Method

Chuck Lorre, America's sitcom king, is the man behind Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory and more. But don't let that put you off - his new offering for Netflix has been described as  charming, droll, sardonic, and hilariously brittle. Although other reviews have been less generous. Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin play two best friends growing old begrudgingly, with a supporting cast that includes Nancy Travis, Danny DeVito and Ann-Margaret. Watch here.

Baby Shower

A host of comedians stars in this new series of five individual sketches all linked by a common theme. Written by Annie McGrath, the art includes Camille Ucan, Lou Sanders, Harriet Kemsley, Bobby Mair, and more.

Here's episode one:
