Due to the phenomenal response to the Absolutely Sketchorama show broadcast on Wednesday, the nice people at Radio 4 have commissioned a full half hour show.
'Sketchorama: Absolutely Special' will feature further, unheard material from the recording held in April at the Oran Mor in Glasgow – Pete Baikie, Morwenna Banks, Moray Hunter, Gordon Kennedy and John Sparkes recorded almost 45 minutes of material so the full half hour show will allow radio listeners a chance to hear even more new sketches from other Absolutely characters such as Frank Hovis and The Old Lady Artist and even more from Stoneybridge and Calum Gilhooley.
"Having heard the sketches chosen for the recent episode of Sketchorama I was delighted to learn that there was more! The Absolutely crew are still held in high esteem and remembered with affection. This is a comeback treat."
Caroline Raphael – Head of Comedy BBC Radio 4 and 4Extra
'Sketchorama: Absolutely Special' will air on Thursday 8th August at 6.30pm on BBC Radio 4.
