Rab C Nesbitt

Rab C. Nesbitt is a string-vested and foul-mouthed gutter philosopher who lives a life of near poverty in Glasgow. In a new series, Rab is struggling to stay off the drink – where once he had a bottle of tonic wine in his hand, now he’s got a teapot. His longsuffering wife Mary-Doll has a cleaning job and is out-achieving him, which, to be honest, isn’t difficult. Rab’s most elaborate benefit scam yet sees him dressing up as a woman to hoodwink the authorities. Our hero concludes you have to work harder than ever to be a lazy waster.
