Jason Pennycooke as an over-the-top French maid and Alicia Davies as the hetero love interest, at one point swapping places in a smoke-filled dream sequence, also make their mark.
Neil McDermott as the spoiled Jean-Michel is easy on the eye and ear while it is Jason Pennycooke who hits all the right comic notes as the cheeky maid, Jacob.
