John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme

John Finnemore, writer and star of Cabin Pressure, regular guest on The Now Show and popper-up in things like Miranda and That Mitchell and Webb Look returns with half an hour of his own sketches, each funnier than the last.

Although, hang on, that system means starting the whole series with the least funny sketch.

Might need to rethink that.

OK, it's a new show filled with sketches written and performed by John Finnemore, but now no longer arranged in strict order of funniness.

Also, he's cut the sketch that would have gone first.

John Finnemore, the writer and star of Cabin Pressure; regular guest on The Now Show; and popper-upper in things like Miranda and Family Guy, presents a special edition of his sketch show, recorded at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

The first series, broadcast last year, was described as ""sparklingly clever"" by The Daily Telegraph and ""one of the most consistently funny sketch shows for quite some time"" by The Guardian. It featured Winnie the Pooh coming to terms with his abusive relationship with honey; how The Archers sounds to people who don't listen to the Archers, and Jekyll and Hyde's tricky housekeeping arrangements. This show won't feature any of those things, but that's ok, because it will feature other things, and they'll be funny too.

John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme is written by and stars John Finnemore, with Margaret Cabourn-Smith, Simon Kane, Lawry Lewin and Carrie Quinlan.

Producer: Ed Morrish.

A sketch that is much too rude and advice on how to deal with bullies.

Sketch show from the writer of Radio 4's Cabin Pressure, John Finnemore

John Finnemore, the writer and star of Cabin Pressure, regular guest on The Now Show and popper-upper in things like Miranda, presents a third series series of his hit sketch show.

The first series was described as 'sparklingly clever' by The Daily Telegraph and 'one of the most consistently funny sketch shows for quite some time' by The Guardian. The second series won Best Radio Comedy at both the Chortle and Comedy.co.uk awards, and was nominated for a Sony award.

This time around, John promises to stop doing silly sketches about nonsense like Winnie the Pooh's honey addiction or how goldfish invented computer programming, and concentrate instead on the the big, serious issues.

This fourth episode of the series contains a sketch that is much, much too rude; advice on how to deal with bullies; and an accidental visit to Ambridge.

Written by and starring John Finnemore, with Margaret Cabourn-Smith, Simon Kane, Lawry Lewin and Carrie Quinlan.

John Finnemore, the writer and star of Cabin Pressure, regular guest on The Now Show and popper-upper in things like Miranda, records a fourth series of his hit sketch show.

1/6: This first edition of the brand-new series sees John create an innovative teaching aid; eavesdrop on two guards who really should be paying more attention; and, well, since you ask him for a tale of honour satisfied, he does have one such sketch.

The first series of John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme was described as ""sparklingly clever"" by The Daily Telegraph and ""one of the most consistently funny sketch shows for quite some time"" by The Guardian. The second series won Best Radio Comedy at both the Chortle and Comedy.co.uk awards, and was nominated for a Radio Academy award. The third series actually won a Radio Academy award.

In this fourth series, John has written more sketches, like the sketches from the other series. Not so much like them that they feel stale and repetitious; but on the other hand not so different that it feels like a misguided attempt to completely change the show. Quite like the old sketches, in other words, but about different things and with different jokes. (Although it's a pretty safe bet some of them will involve talking animals.)

John Finnemore, writer and star of Cabin Pressure and John Finnemore's Double Acts and regular guest on The Now Show and The Unbelievable Truth, presents some seasonal sketches in a special edition of his multi award-winning Souvenir Programme., joined as ever by Margaret Cabourn-Smith, Simon Kane, Lawry Lewin, Carrie Quinlan and, at the piano, Susannah Pearse.

Expect sketches! Expect songs! They're what made up the previous five series, so it seems a pretty safe bet that that's what will be in this one as well. And, well, since you ask him for some tall tales...

John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme was described by The Radio Times as "the best sketch show in years, on television or radio", and by The Daily Telegraph as "funny enough to make even the surliest cat laugh". Already the winner of a BBC Audio Drama Award and a Radio Academy Silver Award, John was named the 2016 Radio Broadcaster of the Year by the Broadcasting Press Guild for his work on Souvenir Programme.
