Enfield was educated at Worth School, Collyer's Sixth Form College and the University of York (where he was a member of Derwent College and read Politics). but now leads his own orchestra, so to speak.
He struck out on his own with The Fast Show and was such a success he has now moved on to comedy drama.

Whitehouse can do sad as well as funny. The title was taken from Ken Dodd's hit song from the Sixties, but the series is more about the inability to find happiness than anything else.
