Jack Dee stars as Rick Spleen, a successful but disillusioned and world-weary stand-up comedian and writer who spends too much time hosting corporate events.
Marty is Rick's quick-talking American writing partner.
He spends most of his days arguing with Rick about every subject under the sun, drinking too much coffee, and devising work avoidance strategies.
It's not easy working with Rick, but winding him up and feeding his neuroses helps Marty to relieve frustrations. Marty invariably comes up with all the funniest lines for the scripts - and seemingly without any effort - something which secretly annoys Rick immensely.
Marty is incredibly laid back. With such a quick wit, he could probably be a much bigger comedy star than Rick will ever be - but he appears to be quite happy to sit in the background behind-the-scenes feeding Rick lines, and letting him take the credit for them too.
