BBC Radio 4 confirms 35 comedy commissions

Radio 4 has revealed details of 35 separate comedy commissions, ranging from returning shows to new series, previous pilots and brand new stand-up.

British Comedy Guide, 17th August 2017

On Radio 4, Harry Hill is back with Life on Egg, a joke-packed comedy about a prison in the middle of the sea. This was properly funny: I found myself giggling out loud as I jogged around the park; not a usual circumstance. Every line was a winner and Hill and his compadres deliver them with vim. I especially liked the jail's janitor. I was about to sign up for the podcast feed, but then saw that Life on Egg is only going to be two episodes of 15 minutes. Boo. Come on, Radio 4, do the right thing. More silly, funny stuff to take our minds off Trumpageddon. Please.
