In the final episode, Rick has at last found the fame and success he so desperately craved. Thanks to his ordeal as a hostage, the 'Prison Siege Comic', as he is now known in the tabloids, is being inundated with offers.
Rick reluctantly agrees to teach a Stand-up Comedy Workshop in Belford Prison. But this turns out to be one of Rick's worst gigs: he is taken hostage, trapped in the prison library by a knife-wielding prisoner. Can Rick talk his way out of trouble?
With no other work on offer, Rick decides to set up his own stand-up comedy workshop. But the first week's class attracts just five students. Worse still, the second session includes a new wannabe comic - deranged cafe owner Michael.
Rick is enjoying his new job, but he's not pleased when Marty takes a shine to his co-presenter, Donna. Rick's neighbor Clive is on the warpath, demanding a refund for an ornamental windmill that his mother bought from the Bargain Channel.
