Steve and Becky are young, unemployed and lazy. All they want to do is eat, drink and have sex - so they do. They don't want to get a job - so they don't. They're happy to spend their days watching DVDs in Steve's bedsit, but they're constantly interrupted by Dan - the lonely bloke from upstairs, Laura and Paul - Becky's sister and her fiance or, most frighteningly for Steve, Becky's parents. Him & Her reveals the hilarious and often shocking truth of what really goes on behind the bedroom doors of today's 20-somethings. And, to be honest, today's 30-somethings. And 40-somethings. And 50-somethings. And 60- and 70- and 80-somethings... Because we all secretly wish we too were young, unemployed and lazy. An anti-romantic comedy, Him & her lifts the lid on love as it really is - warts and all - with farts, bickering and toast.
