For the last year or so, I've been working as a script editor and writer on Miranda Hart's Joke Shop, a new sitcom set in, uh, a joke shop. This weekend it's being piloted on Radio 2, at 1pm on Saturday 26th May, just after Jonathan Ross' show. This - or, to be more precise, the recording - was a great opportunity to try stuff out in front of a live audience before spending loads of money on a series. It's also going to be available on the Radio 2 website for a week, so you can listen again.

For me, it's also a good opportunity to let some of my work be heard by my granny. She doesn't get out of Lincolnshire much, and my work doesn't get into Lincolnshire much, so it's quite an exciting moment for the two of us. Admittedly, that work should be 'invisible' - the script is written by Miranda, and my job was to make it more like itself, with jokes and editing to shape it, but I imagine I'll big up my input at parties.

Here's hoping she laughs.
