Thought I'd pop in a reccommend for John Finnemore's Souvenir Program, since its on air and on the iPlayer at the moment. It's a very good sketch show (John Finnemore created/writes/plays Arthur in Cabin Pressure).

Also I've been loving the David Sedaris monologues over on 4Extra. I was already a fan but am glad of the reminder of how funny he is.

I though John Finnemore was very funny playing Mornington Crescent of I'm Sorry I haven't A Clue this week. :D

I was listening to Son of Cliché, an episode from 1984 last night. Starring a young Chris Barry and written by Rob Grant and Doug Naylor (the writers of Red Dwarf). There was a sketch on there about taking exams that was later used in parts in Red Dwarf. It made me chuckle to hear Grant Naylor recycling things. :)
