Avoid eBay, descale kettle, buy jeans, tone upper arms, retrieve asthma pump from Hoover.

The first in a four-part sketch show co-written by and starring comedian and actress Kerry Godliman.

Kerry is a married mother of two, a stand up comedian and has two children. Her life can only properly function with her daily list - if she didn't compile this vital list, her life would simply fall apart.

Each week, this series looks at a different list and delves into Kerry's madcap world by looking at various elements of that week's list in sketches, narrative and stand up.

In this first episode, Kerry's List includes avoiding eBay, de-scaling the kettle, looking good and being romantic for Valentine's Day, buying jeans, retrieving an asthma pump from the Hoover, toning her upper arms and reviewing the plumber!

Joining Kerry is her husband Ben (played by her real husband Ben Abell) and her five year old daughter Elsie (played by Melissa Bury) together with a range of bizarre characters - including an enthusiastic council environment worker, some disgruntled satsumas, a bored therapist, a Fairy Jeanmother and a very keen gym instructor.

Any busy parent who's ever compiled a list of their own will relate to Kerry Godliman's incident filled world.

The cast includes David Pusey (who co-wrote the series), Bridget Christie, Lucy Briers, Rosie Cavaliero and Nicholas Le Prevost.

Kerry Godliman is fast establishing herself as a highly skilful stand up comic and actress, from her recent appearances on Live at The Apollo (BBC 1), Derek (C4) and Our Girl (BBC 1).

0201Death20140929

Kerry Godliman's list-based comedy series returns with a list including explaining religion to child, making soup, ham strings and laminating something. The usual mixture of sitcom, sketches, stand up and songs all make up Kerry's List.

This week also features Kerry's husband Ben (Ben Abell) coping with the death of a university friend and, in so doing, inadvertently being challenged about his faith. Kerry and Ben's two year old son, Frank, is going through some major potty training and things, inevitably, don't go as smoothly around the potty as Kerry would like. She has an incredibly frustrating experience trying to report dog mess to her local council.

Furthermore Kerry decides it's high time she gives Frank some cinematic education - but an existential Swedish classic may not necessarily be the best for the inquisitive child.

Kerry comes into contact once again with her Guilt alter-ego who challenges her on her inevitable insecurities. There's also another manic conversation with best friend Hazel (Bridget Christie).

The cast includes co-writer David Lane Pusey, Rosie Cavaliero, Lucy Briers, Nicholas Le Prevost, Dominic Frisby and Melissa Bury.

We continue to find Kerry Goldiman making her vitally important weekly lists - without which she simply wouldn't survive as a mother, working comedian and actress.

Husband Ben (Ben Abell) is waging a very personal war on the local council with a street protest against the speed bumps that have been put into their road. Around this protest, Kerry's List includes being thrifty, shaping her eyebrows, teaching her daughter to ride a bike, fixing the smoke alarm and reading an OFSTED report.

We encounter some truly odd You Tube gurus, Kerry meets the supermarket checkout girl from hell and Ben finds himself at odds with the local police force.

Also, we find out how Kerry's best friend Hazel (Bridget Christie) is doing - and sadly, she's not doing very well!

The Godlimans are off on holiday, and Kerry is stressed. In the last episode of the series, Kerry's list is dominated by all things vacation-orientated - including flatten stomach, deep vein thrombosis, learn Greek, shave legs and understand quantum physics.

Pandemonium ensues as Kerry and husband Ben realise they have mislaid their passports and Kerry struggles trying to find the right suncream. She has another stress-filled call with best friend Hazel (Bridget Christie) and also shows off her packing skills.

We all know that going on holiday is stressful, but Kerry shows that, with her all important list, the experience is much more organised and calm - ish!
