Lucy Montgomery and Rhys ThomasMonday 21 April, 11.00pm DWWM was one of Britain’s best loved and most innovative fictional sketch groups. To celebrate their 30th anniversary Tom Rhys-Griffiths (Rhys Thomas), Tracey Anderson (Lucy Montgomery), John Girling, Roger Mills and the deceased Peter Wellet present their personal pick of sketches from over the years.

Jon CulshawMonday 28 April, 11.00pm Eavesdrop on the bizarre, surprising and very secret lives of public people who have been caught unaware by the microphone. You could say it’s an impressionable comedy starring Jon Culshaw, although you probably shouldn’t.

John FinnemoreMonday 5 May, 11.00pm John has written for more sketch shows you can shake a stick at, although why you’d want to we won’t speculate. His credits include The News Quiz, The Now Show, That Mitchell and Webb Sound (and ...Look), The Armstrong and Miller Show and some others that don’t start with ‘The’ or ‘That’, probably. Here, he not only writes but performs all of his own sketches, with some help from Tom Goodman-Hill, Kevin Baker, Marianne Levy and Sarah Hadland.

Pappy's Fun ClubMonday 12 May, 11.00pm If. comedy Award Nominees Pappy's Fun Club, were the hit of last year's Edinburgh Fringe. PFC – or Ben Clark, Matthew Crosby, Brendan Dodds and Tom Parry as they are otherwise known, mix gag laden writing with exuberant, joyous performances – they’re a bit like the Muppets but with less felt. Warning: this show also contains traces of Barry Cryer.

Stephen AmosMonday 19 May – 9 June, 11.00pm Stand-ups Stephen K. Amos and Jason Byrne and comic performers Katherine Parkinson (The IT Crowd, Mouth Trap) and Justin Edwards (The Consultants, Respectable) are brought together for a gang show that mixes the political with the plain silly.

Mark WatsonMonday 16 June – 30 June, 11.00pm Mark Watson is best known for his stand up and his Radio 4 show Mark Watson Makes the World Substantially Better. He’s also written this sitcom set in the world of lookalikes. So, to sum up, it’s a show about lookalikes on the radio.
