In the second episode of American comedian Rita Rudner's new sitcom (written with her real life husband Martin Bergman), Rita continues to try and re-establish herself in the UK after a long absence.
She's come to the UK with her husband Martin (Martin Trenaman) and, from the start, things go awry! Staying at a bizarre hotel - The Richester - Rita is further confused by its eccentric owner Mrs Harrison (the wonderful Phyllida Law).
Rita and Martin meet some of the hotel's guests including The Fabulous Twins, who take oddness to another level! Rita and Martin are invited for dinner by their friends David Baddiel and Morwenna Banks (playing themselves) and, in so doing, Rita finds out some starting revelations about her husband.
This episode also features a memorable karaoke rendition of a classic Beyonce track - memorable for all the wrong reasons!
Once again mixing sitcom with Rita's infamous stand-up, The Rita Rudner Show is a classic old fashioned sitcom with a sterling cast that includes Michael Fenton Stevens, co-writer Martin Bergman and Vivienne Avramoff.
