Summary

Laura Solon won the Perrier Award at the Edinburgh Festival in 2005 with her sensational debut show. She now returns to Radio 4 with a new series of her bittersweet comedy show packed with characters, monologues and sketches from this extraordinary writer and performer.

There will be talking, not talking, some stories, and a lion made out of china. Aided by Rosie Cavaliero, Ben Moor and Ben Willbond, Laura Solon is a remarkable talent with an astonishing eye for detail and ear for voice.

So sad there isn't much more of this.

I love Laura Solon's work. The lady from the house is a wonderful creation. As are the many other characters. I have listened to this over and over and can't wait to find more.

Talking and not talking 2

This is brilliant, hysterican and inspired. I don't know how she does it. The characters are all highly original and funny, the sketches are not too long so it is fast paced. Can't wait for cd number 3!!!

Funny, funny, funny!

OK, this is not quite as fantastic as series 1, but it is still 95 percent better than most UK comedy downloads you'll ever try. Laura's wonderful characters--esp. the truly demented China lion lady and the upperclass owner of rat-infested Chingley Hall--are good company and hysterically funny. This is comedy that relies primarily on wit and character to launch the laughs. I can't wait for series 3!
