R4 series for Millican
'Agony aunt' advice for studio audience
Stand-up Sarah Millican has landed her first Radio 4 series, offering to solve personal problems prompted by her studio audience.
The full series of Sarah Millican's Support Group follows a pilot recorded last year, soon after she scooped the if.comedy best newcomer award at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Four recordings have been scheduled between the end of this month and January, for broadcast early next year.
Audience members will be encouraged to share problems with her agony aunt character – who just happens to be called Sarah too – after which she will offer tips ‘in the same way as the busybody at the end of your street who knows everything and dishes out advice whether you want to hear it or not does,’ according to the BBC.
In the past year, Millican has appeared on Have I Got News For You, Mock The Week and Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow.
