Maureen Lipman stars in shows recorded in front of a live audience in the Radio Theatre.

From pesky rodents to Jane Austen. The irrepressible Maureen Lipman performs her comic monologues in the BBC Radio Theatre.

Building on a monologue tradition that builds on the foundations established by the likes of Joyce Grenfell, Maureen brings her own particular brand of humour and wit to this genre.

Characters include a Northern waitress with a passion for Cliff, a widowed chef who has fallen for her Polish builder and an Australian radiologist severely lacking in bedside manner.

From Balkan windscreen washers to a cock-eyed look at the spirit of Christmas. More comic monologues, musings and anecdotes from the irrepressible Maureen Lipman.

Maureen Lipmanā€™s unique collection of musings, monologues, duologues and amusing anecdotes about her life and popular culture.
This first programme begins with a poem reflecting on the past two years we’ve lived through. Other characters we meet include a far too chatty woman on a commuter train and a woman who is a whizz at crosswords.
For this second series, recorded in front of an audience at the BBC Radio Theatre, Maureen is joined by Oliver Cotton. Together they give life and opinions to various animals. They also give their take on an Awards ceremony. These are the ‘Daftas’.
