Radio 4 special for Stephen Buchanan

Former BBC New Comedy Award-winner

BBC New Comedy Award winner Stephen Buchanan is to record his first  stand-up show for Radio 4.

In Talking Shop, the comic talks about  his chequered work history and his attempts to help Dove, a Vietnamese refugee who lives with himself and his mum, on to the career ladder.

Buchanan took the BBC title in 2018, after three times making the final of the Scottish Comedian Of The Year competition. He has appeared on Jonathan Ross’s Comedy Club and The Now Show and written on the likes of Scot Squad and Breaking The News.

His show will be filmed in front of a virtual audience next week, and joins a roster of forthcoming Radio 4 stand-up specials that includes  shows from Imran YusufJayde Adams, Elvis McGonagall and Gemma Arrowsmith. Kiri Pritchard-McLane’s show, Egg-sistential crisis aired last night.

Virtual tickets to Buchanan’s Talking Shop recording are available here.
