Sketch from John Finnemore’s Souvenir Programme.
Also huffduffed as…
Dave Cohen is joined by regular co-host James Cary (writer, Hut 33) to talk to John Finnemore, the writer and co-star of Radio 4’s hit sitcom Cabin Pressure. Topics on the table this week are Campus, radio pilots, My Family, and the chance to name John’s brand new Radio 4 sketch show.
In a very special edition of Rum Doings, we are joined by comedy writer John Finnemore. We have discussed Mr Finnemore’s work on Rum Doings in the past, especially the fantastic Radio 4 sitcom Cabin Pressure. He’s worked on very many radio and television comedies, perhaps most notably as a lead writer for Mitchell & Webb on both Radio 4 and BBC 2, and despite this still agreed to join us for our twentieth episode.
There’s a topic not under discussion this week too: how are we going to inoculate ourselves against Britain’s road rage epidemic.
You’ll not be surprised to learn much of the topics this week are radio and TV comedy – subjects we’ve spoken about a great deal before.
