NEW EPISODE! Writer and actor Katherine Jakeways (North by Northamptonshire, Armstrong & Miller, Tracey Ullman) joins us to celebrate a sitcom we all rate as one of the very best ever made, Esmonde & Larbey's peerless Ever Decreasing Circles, a show ostensibly set in a suburban close, but actually set in the darkest recesses of the British soul.

If your brains were left as excited and fizzy as ours by this week's chat with CARIAD LLOYD , we mentioned a load of brilliant improvisers, and you'd do your heart and soul good by checking them out doing what they do best, live, creating something funny that will never happen again.
Here are a couple of links.
The original and best, 33 years and still going strong. "The best in the business," as Cariad says. It has to be: THE COMEDY STORE PLAYERS
And AUSTENTATIOUS - Cariad's long-form live improvised Jane Austen novel troupe. An off-the-cuff highwire act of spur-of-the-moment creativity. Basically Python's "Live Novel Writing From Wessex" sketch, but actually happening. They'll be at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival in August, have more dates at the Savoy, and are off on a full UK tour soon.
Top improvisational comedian and award winning host of Griefcast, Cariad Lloyd, shares her love of game-changing impro show Whose Line Is It Anyway, and talks about... well, everything. The secrets of life, death and making stuff up.
