    You’ve never overheard a more riotous restaurant conversation. This is a delectable romp through a select assortment of the most famous eateries in New York and Los Angeles. From the Carnegie Deli, Le Bernadin and The Palm, to Drai’s, Spago, and The Ivy, the authors, famed comedian Jackie Mason and renowned divorce attorney Raoul Felder, make no bones about laying the ground rules of not only where to eat and where not to eat, but what to eat and how to act when eating.

Since that fateful first series, the show has gone on to win Sony awards, Writers Guild nominations, and a Nobel Prize for Chemistry with lines like - "Kids should never be fashion slaves, especially in the Far East."

    Since it began several years ago Hugo Rifkind's dazzling My Week column has been satirising the high profile and the famous, and basically anyone foolish or unfortunate enough to find themselves at the top of the news agenda that week. The column itself is a fictional diary parodying their movements over seven days in a rarely flattering but always hilarious manner. Rifkind's victims are as diverse and as headline-grabbing as David Cameron, Beyoncé, Oprah Winfrey, Edwina Currie, Barack Obama and Pippa Middleton.

    She came, she saw, she criticised.

In the series, Jo is, as ever, failing to shut up - about love, marriage, dating, celebrity, newspapers, money, cats, sex, pubs, parties, and quite possibly Scotland.
