Having originally began as a pilot three years ago, this sitcom has now been given a full series on BBC Three.

It stars and is written by Tim Renkow, a comedian with cerebral palsy. He plays the title role, a man who uses his disability in order to make everyone around him feel uncomfortable, taking full advantage of the social awkwardness that he likes to cause. In the opening episode, Tim lands a job at a greetings card company and decides to see how badly behaved he can be before someone finally sacks him.

Jerk is on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer from 10.00.
