BBC New Comedy Award winner Stephen Buchanan's debut stand up recording for BBC Radio 4.

In Talking Shop, Stephen outlines his chequered work history from shop worker to human ping pong ball. At home Stephen lives with his mum and a Vietnamese refugee Dove. Can Stephen help Dove onto the career ladder and can they both move up in the world?

Stephen Buchanan - Talking Shop encapsulates the trials and tribulations of Stephen's life so far, alongside the true story of Stephen and Dove's developing friendship - all of which have led to this very moment: Stephen's debut Radio 4 special.
