    My guest is Jimmy Akingbola the star of the big hit ITV sitcom Kate and Koji dropping this week on Britbox. #HeliumRadio

This week my guest is the very talented and versatile Jimmy Akingbola who shows us his comedy chops in the new ITV hit from the U.K. Kate and Koji, which drops Tuesday on Britbox. Joining Akingbola in this sitcom that has taken Britain by storm is another gifted actor none other than Vera herself the brilliant Brenda Blethyn.

Kate and Koji is a comedy that is centered on a relationship between Blethyn, who plays the grouchy, grudge-holding owner of a struggling seaside café, and Akingbola the very well-educated, out-of-place customer who sits in her empty greasy spoon establishment for hours.

But there is more to this story than may meet the eye and that is because Koji is a doctor who left the oppression of his homeland to seek a better life in the U.K and who one day hopes to practice medicine again in his new home country. At the same time Kate who not a fan of foreigners but she sees a way where he might just be her ticket to turning her failing business around.

So these mismatched pair see a way where they can help each other out despite the fact they are constantly trading barbs. Kate offers Koji a deal where he will give medical advice to help build up her customer base and in exchange, he will get food and drink for his medical advice.

This is a wonderful ensemble show with a truly funny supporting cast that both Akingbola and Blethyn playoff in the way we have seen done in Cheers or other classic comedies. Kate and Koji are well written, well-acted, and well worth checking out on Britbox.
