Radio Series For Jordan Brookes

Edinburgh Comedy Award winner Jordan Brookes has his own radio series. Jordan Brookes: On...starts on BBC Radio 4 on July 28 at 11pm and runs over four Wednesdays.

In Jordan’s own words: “Ever since I was born all I’ve ever wanted was to do a 4-part Radio 4 series going out at 11pm. My mum used to play Radio 4 at 11pm when I was in the womb and apparently she swears she could hear me laughing in there! She used to play me all the greats! The Boo-Boo Show, Benny Peters, Janet Du Crock, John, Window Man, 15 Minutes Of Blood-Curdling Screams. So it’s an honour to pick up where my heroes left off and continue the great tradition of entertaining the next generation of gestating minds. Yes, this is a comedy show for babies. Both small and big, young and old. The baby in the womb, the baby in all of us. Hope you enjoy it, you dumb babies.”
