An Anglo-American radio sitcom set in Colonial America. Written and starring Andy Hamilton and Jay Tarses
Baltimore, the 1770s - Shopkeeper Samuel Oliphant has a lot on his plate. His country is fighting for its freedom against the British, leaving him with less customers ("dead people tend to shop less"), and he has two redcoats living in his house: One-eyed, one-armed, one-legged, one nostrilled conman Sergeant McGurk, and his ineffectual officer Captain Brimshaw.
Our Review: Revolting People is one of the very few sitcoms successfully created by both a British writer and an American writer working together. The series has been highly successful on BBC Radio 4, lasting four series.
