An 'intimate' BBC radio comedy show in which Rufus Hound gives comedians and other celebrities the chance to revisit their formative years by dusting off and reading out in public "their hormone-fuelled angst-ridden diaries".
Before they begin, the performer puts their diary excerpt into context by recounting the back-story and revealing how old they were when the extract was written, what year it was written and why it makes them cringe.
The series has a strong biographical element, unearthing hidden gems from the guest's life and revealing intimate details of their teenage experiences and personality.
