2011 Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Award winner Adam Riches made his BBC Radio 4 debut in 2012 with one-off pilot The Guns Of Adam Riches.

It was a fast-paced, fully-loaded bandolier of character comedy that brought such man-weapons as Coach Coach, MasterMind, Daniel Day Lewis, The Drifter and Cube-Voice Guy, plus live music and improvisation from whoever happened to be sat on the front row.

Following the pilot, two series have followed: each focusing on a different character.
