News & Interviews for Brassic: Series 1
It is a hilarious, warm, brutal melange that works because it has heart without sentimentality and authenticity without strain. Let's hope Brassic gets as long as Shameless did.
Joseph Gilgun is wonderfully expressive as Vinnie, his volatile features continually scrunching together and apart like the top of a drawstring bag.
It's safe to say that bipolar isn't glamorised or dramatised for the show's sake either which is, you know, rather refreshing.
Bingeworthy Brit crime comedy has swearing, drugs, violence.
Audience Reviews for Brassic: Series 1
Mar 22, 2021Phenomenal television entertainment. Joe Gilgun is brilliant in pretty much everything he does but Brassic shows him at his best, both a comedic genius and a serious actor capable of the most powerful performances. Other actors in Brassic shine as well (stunner Michelle Keegan is wonderful as Erin, and Steve Evetts will leave your sides aching from laughter as farmer Jim). Watching the outlandish antics and compelling stories unfold is exciting and fulfilling. When you get around to watching Brassic, you'll kick yourself for not doing it sooner. Truly fantastic stuff.
Feb 21, 2021Brilliant writing, based on true life story of Joe Gilgun. Wonderful acting, hilarious scripts. Laugh until your sides hurt. Highly recommended

Jun 04, 2020Heart wrenching one moment and bust a gut funny the next. This show trusts the viewer to experience the full range of human emotion in all it's extremes. Whether intentional or not, it's an emotional representation of what a person with bipolar experiences. The highs are high and the lows thoroughly low. And every second is worth it. Hats off to Joe Gilgun for taking the risk and exposing his vulnerabilities through the writing of a character based on himself. Too often in tv and film, we see characters that feel disingenuous in their reactions and dialogue. Gilgun's portrayal of Vinnie is quite the opposite. Every second of screentime is authentic. Every tear is palpably real. Every smile is heart felt. Vinnie's eclectic crew of friends feel like you're watching a group of friends through a window as opposed to a television screen. Like the kids playing on the playground while you've been grounded inside for the day. You want to be a part of his crew. I've recommended this to multiple friends of mine that used to accompany myself in similar capers. Maybe none so outrageous but the same level of wholesome mischief applied. And they've all come to the same consensus. This show is authentic, funny and hits close to home. And we all can't wait to see what Vinnie and his crew get up to next. And I personally can't wait to see what Joe Gilgun comes up with next.
