The K8's sozzled kitchen sizzles
Parodies the current plethora of banal cooking shows & fads, featuring a pair of thirty- something spinsters, one a dedicated foodie (McLennan) home-schooling the lactose, fructose, gluten-intolerant reluctant novice (McCartney), conjuring kitchen disasters as the duo imbibe their way to an online cult following.
The K8's are obviously seasoned writers/performers, their material is sharp, witty, daring and economical, each episode a compact 7-8 minute laugh that consequently rarely loses momentum. My personal favourite is the "We Quit Sugar" instalment, the pair discovering the pitfalls of crash dieting as fatigue takes hold, and tempers begin to fray.
While the ubiquitous "Christmas Special" has already appeared in the six-part series, I hope there's a second series and a lot more to come from these talented comediennes. Well worth a look.
