Karen is on song; ON THE BOX.
Happy Hollidays BBC1, Friday
KAREN Dunbar was the highlight of Happy Hollidays as the jakey karaoke singer with a chip on her shoulder cos she's singing in Ayrshire - not Vegas.
This comedy had a familiar feel, with old faces Ford Kiernan and Gavin Mitchell and plenty of childish gags bringing us halfway between Still Game and Dear Green Place territory.
Its writers Simon Carlyle and Gregor Sharp were behind the hilarious Burns mockumentary No Holds Bard earlier this year.
So let's hope for the slow burn because on first viewing the laugh rate is a bit like sunny days at a Scottish caravan park - one in two.
