Tom Wrigglesworth's Hang-Ups - radio review

Ageing parents, sweet sister and mystic gran - Tom's family phone calls are a keenly observed, comical joy.

Stuart Heritage, The Guardian, 15th November 2013

I'm unfamiliar with comedian Tom Wrigglesworth so wasn't quite sure what to expect of a routine based on telephone calls to his Sheffield-based family. But it's a lovely half-hour, with Tom becoming increasingly exasperated by his parents' failure to understand him and their obsession with the mundane.

Far from resenting them, he's actually extremely fond of the mum and dad who come out with batty lines like "I'm nostalgic for a twin-tub... oh, and your brother is in prison". And Tom's Gran is on the line too - to great comic effect: "Your mother is like the National Accident Helpline, always trying to compensate."

For me, the biggest pay-off was to discover she's played by one of our greatest actresses, the incomparable Judy Parfitt. She alone will make it worth tuning in for the rest of the series.
