The series is a mix of Nathan's stand-up intercut with scenes from his family life.

Janet a.k.a. Mum - At the end of the day she just wants the best for her son. However, she'd also love to brag and show her son off to her friends, but with Nathan only telling jokes for a living it's kind of hard to do. She loves Nathan, but she aint looking embarrassed for nobody!

Martin a.k.a. Dad - works in the construction industry and was looking forward to his son getting a degree so the two of them could work together in the same field. But now Nathan has blown that dream out of the window. Martin is clumsy and hard-headed and leaves running the house to his wife (she wouldn't allow it to be any other way).

Shirley a.k.a. Grandma - cannot believe Nathan turned down architecture for comedy. How can her grandson go on stage and use foul language and filthy material... it's not the good Christian way!

So with the weight of his family's disappointment will Nathan be able to persist and follow his dreams? Or will he give in to his family's interference?

About Poorly Relatives - Nathan Caton is unsympathetic when his parents are poorly as he has an important gig and needs to be on his A game. But he agrees not to tell Grandma that they're poorly as she doesn't believe in poorly.
