Marcella's mad world.
Byline: THE TOP TV TOPICS with paddy shennan, the man with the remote
THE very talented and very funny Roisin Conaty is one of the most likeable comedy performers on the box.
She was a joy to watch alongside Greg Davies in the brilliant Channel 4 sitcom, Man Down, and now her own show, which debuted on E4 in 2017, has been promoted to the grown-ups' channel for its second series (GameFace, Channel 4, Wednesday).
Created and written by Conaty, she plays the hapless, "did she really do that?" character Marcella, whose private life - past and present - could be described as a mess. That's if we are being kind.
She was with her ex for 12 years - then, just two weeks after they split up, he married someone else.
Now Marcella has fallen for her driving instructor - so much so that she was distraught when she passed her driving test, and told him she failed so she could still see him for lessons. Marcella's world makes little sense - but very good comedy.
