Are you having a laugh? After this particularly grim winter, we wouldn’t blame you if you weren’t. But don’t worry – HBO are here to banish those blues once and for all. The cable and satellite network is known for its top-quality comedy shows, and this spring it’s releasing a cacklesome cache of both brand-new and much-loved shows on DVD, Blu-ray and digital download.
Fresh this year is the first series of Insecure, co-written by and starring Issa Rae, best known for her web series, Awkward Black Girl. Also making its debut is teachers-at-war comedy Vice Principals (above), from the outrageous minds behind Eastbound & Down.
There are currently around 1,450 Big Issue sellers working hard on the streets each week.
Ballers is back, with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson this time flexing his comedy muscles as a retired American football star now immersed in the murky world of player management. And to complete this veritable gag-bag of giggles are withering US political satire Veep and Mike Judge’s computer geek-com Silicon Valley.
We have five sets of all five HBO hit comedies – Insecure, Ballers, Vice Principles, Veep and Silicon Valley – to give away on DVD.
