ANGELA BARNES LANDS NEW RADIO SHOW YOU CAN’T TAKE IT WITH YOU
Angela Barnes has landed her first Radio 4 series commission. Based on her critically acclaimed debut show at the Edinburgh Fringe 2014, You Can't Take It With You, Angela shares the big stuff she's thinking about: life, love, family, work and death.
The four episode series is in part tribute to Angela's late father, an enormous character - (he was a sex shop manager, naturist, and a big fan of caravans and pranks), and a heavy influence on Angela who taught her a carpe diem approach to life. His motto: You Can't Take It With You.
Angela said, 'I'm dead chuffed to have a series on Radio 4. I've been a BBC Radio 4 comedy geek for as long as I can remember so it means so much that they've let me have a go.'
The show airs in fifteen minute episodes on Wednesdays from August 10th at 11:00pm.
