Brighten your week with the latest BBC Radio 4 comedy, introduced by Darren Harriott.

    Dave Podmore's Positive Test

    Dave Podmore's Positive Test

    The world has been turned upside down in 2020, but could the dearth of sport offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for cricket's anti-hero Dave Podmore to make big bucks?

    Pod is in negotiations with the Tokyo Olympics and, after all the efforts to take drugs out of sport, finally there's a chance to take the sport out of drugs. At the same time, can he save the precious jobs of the acting community or, now that we live in the 'new normal', are their valuable jobs as giant sporting mascots gone forever?

    Starring Christopher Douglas, Andrew Nickolds, Nicola Sanderson and Lewis Macleod
    Written by Christopher Douglas, Andrew Nickolds and Nick Newman
    Produced by Jon Harvey
    Executive Producer: Richard Wilson
    A Naked production for BBC Radio 4

    Tudur Owen: Zoo

    Tudur Owen: Zoo

    Last year Tudur Owen brought us 'Where on Earth is Anglesey?', a Radio 4 series that introduced us to his homeland, Ynys Môn and hinted at the rather unconventional goings-on there. One such eccentric event is the incredible but true story of how he and his family somewhat unwittingly became the owners of what the News of the World would go on to describe as “The Worst Zoo in Britain”.

    Join Tudur for an engrossing caper about a corrupt animal wrangler, a family on the brink and a climactic wallaby chase across the Menai Strait.

    All the events in this story are almost true.

    Written and performed by Tudur Owen
    Script Editor: Gareth Gwynn
    Additional voices: Lisa-Jên Brown and Fergus Craig

    Sound Engineering and Design by David Thomas
    Producer: Richard Morris

    Michael Spicer: Before Next Door

    Michael Spicer: Before Next Door

    What happens when a socially awkward and neurotic part-time comedian becomes a global internet sensation? Michael Spicer: Before Next Door charts Michael's real-life progress - sort of - as his Room Next Door videos amass tens of millions of views online and win him acclaim for his comedy, at last.

    But how will Michael cope?

    Will this married father of two ever be able to quit his day job as a copywriter for a kitchen worktop company? Why is the broadcaster Peter Curran in his house? And could hang-gliding with BBC Radio 5Live presenter Emma Barnett be a way to advance his career?

    After 20 years of making comedy under the radar, Michael is now on the cusp of leaving the office behind and - with the help of his wife Roberta - making a living out of being funny. But will an ordinary person like Michael be able to successfully navigate the unpredictable road to fame? Well, probably not, no.

    Performers: Michael Spicer with Ellie Taylor, Joanna Neary, Peter Curran and Emma Barnett.

    Writer: Michael Spicer
    Producer: Matt Tiller

    TalkRadio interview with Boris Johnson from TalkRadio / News Licensing.

The brilliant introduction in german for the Wagner episode is absolutely hilarious, Comedy der Woche(n) just shows how English master this utterly beautiful language.
