How I Became Bereaved

The godfather of British stand-up comedy returns to the live stage with his trials of modern life. John contemplates his intimate feelings on the loss of a close friend.

The Godfather of British stand-up comedy returns to the live stage with his trials of modern life and the tales of his much loved cat Edward.

Death comes to us all and is never felt more than by those that surround us. In this reflective and ultimately joyful episode, John contemplates his intimate feelings on the loss of a close friend.

The process of funerals, cremations, insurance and other formalities carry the bereaved along following the loss of a loved one. Of course, commercial compassion isn't always received as a sincere gesture. Certainly not by Mr Moloney.

To aid in his grief, John is presented with the opportunity for counselling, which goes as well as can be expected.

With Karen Bartke, Richard Melvin and Ian Rankin.

A Dabster production for BBC Radio 4.
