Summary

From Liam Williams, a two-time Edinburgh Festival Award-nominated comedian, comes a rich storytelling series about Liam's teenage misadventures in the Yorkshire suburbs. 

The first series delves into Liam's memories of his first fight, virginity loss, the best house party ever organised and his marvellous outwitting of an entire teaching staff. This is the New Labour, postmining, aspirational heartland meeting 50 Cent and Generation Y ennui, represented in a bourgeois radio format - by one of Britain's most exciting comedians.

Series 2 sees Liam anxiously awaiting A-Level results before trying to find his feet in a most alien of new environments, Cambridge University. There, he searches for hedonism, torn between the laddish drinking societies and the artsy intelligentsia of Cambridge University.

Liam Williams is a critically acclaimed comedian, known for his wry poetic presentation style. He was nominated for Best Newcomer at the 2013 Edinburgh Fridge Comedy Awards and for Best Show at the 2014 awards. He has appeared as a guest stand up on Russell Howard’s Good News and on Channel 4’s Drunk History. His successful mockumentary series on BBC Three in 2017 was called Pls Like, about a man trying to become a YouTube star.

The series was recorded in Leeds and stars teens from Yorkshire as the young Liam and his mates.

Produced by Arnab Chanda (series 1) and Joseph Nunnery (series 2).

Brilliant

The first episode of the second series was particularly brilliant imho. Loved it a lot.

Excellent portrayal of growing up in Leeds

Liam Williams does an amazing job at describing what it’s like growing up in a Yorkshire city. The performances were incredible and really sucked you into the storyline. We’ve all had friends like his and I think everyone can relate in one way or another.

3 Hours and 41 Minutes You'll Want to Sit Down For

Yes, sit down! Sitting down to 'listen to something' in 2018 may seem completely dramatic and humiliating, but Liam Williams has such a brilliant sense of story and emotion that I once found myself dashing into a Santander on my walk to work because they had a chair in the lobby, and I was able listen to the last four minutes of an episode in relative quiet lest I miss a single vignette of this excellent audio book(?) (radio tragicomedy? pathos-podcast?). Ladhood proved just as hilarious as Williams' stand-up (which is hilarious) and so I've been begging all my friends to listen to the series for weeks. Sadly, all my mates used up their Student Amazon Prime trial memberships ages ago, as such Ladhood is also a salve for my, at times, crippling nostalgia for uni. Five stars.

Fantastic!

Great writing, narration and acting. I loved every minute and was very sad when it ended.
