A new series of the hugely popular sketch show featuring Stoneybridge Town Council, Little Girl, Frank Hovis, Calum Gilhooley, Two Line Terry and the News News News team.
The hugely popular sketch show returns for a third series on BBC Radio 4. Pete Baikie, Morwenna Banks, Moray Hunter, Gordon Kennedy and John Sparkes revisit some of their much-loved characters, and also introduce some newcomers.
Absolutely was a big hit on Channel Four in the late 80s and early 90s. In 2013, the group got back together for the Sketchorama: Absolutely Special for BBC Radio 4 - winning a BBC Audio Drama Award in the Best Live Scripted Comedy category. The Absolutely Radio Show followed, with the first two series picking up Celtic Media Award nominations for Best Radio Comedy, while the second series was also nominated for a BBC Audio Drama Award in 2018
The opening episode of this series features The Stoneybridge Town Council pitching for their very own radio station, the Little Girl giving her explanation of MeToo and Time’s Up and Calum Gilhooley being interviewed for a job. We also hear from a family agonising about being completely average and, from the archive, there's Two Line Terry’s film career.
