Sunday 19th June 2011
Written by and starring Dan Clark, How Not To Live Your Life, is a unique and quirky comedy that follows the antics of a typically neurotic, single young man, with an over-active imagination, who tries and fails to navigate the basics of life. How Not To Live Your Life Series 3 is out on BBC DVD from 18th July 2011.
Ever wished life had a pause button with various options for what to do or say next? Do you think you'd say the right thing if you went through each scenario in your head before you uttered a sentence?
Meet Don (Dan Clark - The Mighty Boosh, No Heroics), a man with ambition, a man in the prime of life, a man who manages to mess up even the simplest of tasks. Each episode covers a few days in his life as he stumbles his way through a variety of life's challenges. When faced with any awkward situation Don's energetic imagination gets into gear listing all of the things not to do or say in that situation. Unfortunately, each option seems worse than the previous one.
At the climax of series two Don's luck was about to change as it looked like he was finally going to get it on with his flatmate, Sam. But as we rejoin desperate lothario Don in the third series of this hit BBC Three comedy, it appears that things didn't quite go according to plan, and each day is a trial for Don as he must face up to the fact that he blew his chance with Sam.
To make matters worse, she has a new boyfriend who is everything Don isn't - mature, reliable, clever and not at all self-obsessed. Once more Don has to deal with a fraught love life that involves dates with an aristocrat, a tramp and a really angry woman. On top of that he is sucked into taking part in Top Gun - The Musical, tries therapy and even sells his soul to become a corporate highflyer. But despite all this, he is still no wiser as to how to live his life...
