Carrie and Barry is a sitcom, shown 2004 - 2005 on BBC One, starring Neil Morrissey, Claire Rushbrook, Mark Williams and Michelle Gomez.

Produced by Hartswood Films, it reunited Morrissey with personnel from Men Behaving Badly: specifically writer Simon Nye, executive producer Beryl Vertue and director Martin Dennis. It was produced by Sue Vertue.

Neil Morrissey plays part-time taxi driver Barry and Claire Rushbrook is his beautician wife Carrie. The couple find themselves with the daily challenges of keeping the spice in their marriage and the fun in their day jobs — as well as having to deal with Barry's teenage daughter Sinéad (Sarah Quintrell) from his disastrous first marriage.

Mark Williams plays Barry's mate Kirk, who co-owns his black cab (he does the night shifts) whilst Michelle Gomez is Carrie's acid-tongued best friend and fellow beautician Michelle.
