I TALK The Job Lot

"Turn the unemployed into the funemployed" is the motto that kicks off ITV's new sitcom The Job Lot, which sees him from Him & Her (Russell Tovey) and her from Miranda (Sarah Hadland) join forces. The Job Lot is an observational comedy set in a Midlands Job Centre.

Russell Tovey plays Karl who during the opening episode we see tell an unemployed member of the public that he "feels like a failure", bang his head on the phone, draw a bum on a whiteboard with a permanent marker and tell a Job Centre full of people that they can stick his job where "the squirrel keeps his conkers".


Just your average office worker then. Shame it's his job to motivate others into work though. At least he has his biscuits to keep him calm, a whole drawer full in fact.
