The fourth series of the award-winning show. Kevin Eldon is a comedy phenomenon. He’s been in virtually every major comedy show in the last fifteen years, but not content with working with the likes of Chris Morris, Steve Coogan, Armando Iannucci, Harry Enfield & Paul Whitehouse, Stewart Lee, Julia Davis and Graham Linehan, he’s also created his own comedy series for BBC Radio 4.
In this series, Kevin gives the show a narrative turn, as he pretends to be broadcasting from the Eldon family's stately home, complete with Morwenna Banks (“”Absolutely”) as his artistic genius Italian wife Alessandra, Kate Duchêne as Helen, the family archivist and Miles Jupp and Justin Edwards as Kevin's adopted twin sons, Jacob & Rees (and their cat Mogg).
Also joining the show are Dan "Angelos Epithemiou" Skinner - whilst Catherine Shepherd, David Reed and Paul Putner play the usual wild range of characters...
The show is written by Kevin with additional material by Jason Hazeley & Joel Morris (“Philomena Cunk” and yes, those modern Ladybird books)
The show comes from Pozzitive, proud producers of Cabin Pressure, Thanks A Lot, Milton Jones!, Jeremy Hardy Speaks To The Nation, The Brig Society, The Castle, Armando Iannucci’s Charm Offensive & Agendum...
In the first episode, we present the show from Kevin’s very own mansion, complete with an Italian genius, a brace of pedantic sons, a giraffe on a pulley and Britain’s noisiest toast as Kevin’s adopted twin sons Jacob & Rees declare independence form the family home...
In Show 2, why not take a stroll through the Eldon family archive as we get to meet Kevin’s ancestors, discover the true value of £35 billion pounds and wallow in mud.
Show 3, and Kevin Eldon and his all-important cast enjoy a naked tractor ride, a dusty humbug and a love story with cannons.
And in the fourth and final episode, we hear the sounds of multiple flamethrowers, God, and an archivist being flung onto a lorry.

Whether it’s a gift for a colleague you’ve barely uttered a word to or for Great Auntie what’s-her-name you only see once a year, there’s nothing quite like the annual public humiliation of a Secret Santa. But fear not – one of these stocking-sized books are guaranteed to get a nod of approval, whoever's name it is you pulled out of a hat.
