A second series of the show had been confirmed in December 2012.[5] The second series began on Monday 16 September 2013.[6]


An episode of the first series contained a sketch showing a man spitting into a bucket before receiving Holy Communion at mass.[7] An association representing the Irish Catholic Bishops formally complained to RTÉ about the sketch, saying that it is "grossly offensive to all Catholics".[8]
