This week’s recommendation comes from Jonny Sweet, comedy writer extraordinaire (You might know him from Chickens on Sky Atlantic or as one of the cast of Tom Basden’s Party).
Hard To Tell is about the romance that blooms between Tom (Jonny Sweet) and Ellen (Charlotte Ritchie), but it’s romance with a difference. We never get to hear the pair do anything but greet each other, and instead learn about their dates and meetings through what they tell their friends and family.
Katy Wix, Alex MacQueen and Sarah Solemani are just a few of the comedy actors who make up these mismatched friends and family, advising Tom and Ellen about how to have a relationship with each other.
It’s that fabulous awkward comedy where you can’t help but laugh at the pretentiousness of the characters, yet love them all the same.
Radio 4 are repeating the first series and the second is on it’s way. You have four more days to listen to episode one and you can do it here. Enjoy!
