Back to the Outback

The reptile house of the zoo is a sad place as the animals there are feared and seen as ugly monsters by those visit. Not like their cute cuddly counterparts in the nearby enclosures. Popular with visitors and photographers, ‘Pretty Boy’ is a fluffy Koala but underneath his attractive demeanour, his attitude leaves a lot to be desired. When the undesirables hatch a plan to escape, they soon find out they have another in the gang when the koala tags along. Now they must all get to know each other as they venture ‘Back to the Outback’ and discover we are not always who we appear to be, along the way.

Russell Howard: Lubricant

British comedian Russell Howard is back for his first stand up special for Netflix since 2017 and by his own admission – a lot has changed. Citing issues raised by a global pandemic as well as everyday observations, Howard has the crowd in giggles again with his anecdotes, exaggerated impressions and actions on stage. ‘Lubricant’ is the first comedy special of its kind in that Howard is the first to release a documentary alongside it – making it a two-part special. The documentary will address the damage to the arts industry in the UK and the careers of those who work within it, during the pandemic. Both parts will be released on the same day.
