Listen to my BBC Radio 4 sitcom, Ability

The exciting news is that my BBC Radio 4 sitcom - Ability -  started last week and you can listen to it throughout May on Wednesdays at 11.30am. You can also catch up with it on the BBC iPlayer. 

For those of you who don't know, Ability is about a disabled guy who can be a bit of a dick at times. So, obviously it's totally fictional and not based on myself at all! It follows the life of Matt (who uses a communication device to speak with....again purely coincidental!). He has recently moved out of home to live with his best mate, Jess, and also has a very dodgy carer called Bob, who visits him every day. What possibly could go wrong?!

The first episode aired last week and the response to Ability has been really good so far. It’s always hard to gauge whether other people will like it or not when you’re writing something, and usually I can try stuff out at my gigs almost straight away. But for my sitcom, I had to wait a few months for it to be broadcast, so that was a new experience for me. I’m just very happy that people enjoyed listening to it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

If you had told me when I started doing comedy back in February 2012 that I would ever have a series of my own on Radio 4, I think I would have laughed in your face. I've listened to so much great comedy on Radio 4 over the years and it's where some of my idols, such as the League Of Gentlemen, first got their break. So to be following in the footsteps of people like that is an amazing feeling.

It was a pleasure to work on the series because of a great writing and production team as well as a top cast. Thanks to my amazing writing partner, Katherine Jakeways, my very talented producer, Jane Berthoud and everyone else who has worked on Ability. I've been lucky to work with some very talented people, and thanks to the BBC for having faith in me.

Enjoy listening to it!
