Master character comedian Colin Hoult presents his debut comedy show for BBC Radio 4. Enter the Carnival of Monsters, a bizarre world of sketches, stories and characters, presented by the sinister Ringmaster.

Meet such monstrous yet strangely familiar oddities as:

Thwor - the mighty (but Leeds based) God of Thwunder.

Len Parker - Nottingham born martial arts and Transformers enthusiast.

Anna Mann - outrageous star of such forgotten silver screen hits such as Rogue Baker, Who's For Turkish Delight and A Bowl For My Bottom.

- Andy Parker - Wannabe Hollywood screenwriter.

- Plus a host of other characters from acid jazz obsessives, to mask workshop coordinators.
