To Hull and back

A gentle well written and acted series throughout.

Each and every character has a laugh in them, gelling together all through the three episodes.
There’s a singing gorilla, with a banana of course. Elvis witnesses a miracle.
In my opinion, superb, I commented this to the house.

Absolutely brilliant, so funny, do listen if you want to laugh out loud!

So funny, brilliant performances, well written & took me away from the hard life we are living at the moment, during lockdown. I’m going to listen over and over again as I’ve been laughing out loud.
Thank you for that Lucy & all the cast, you made me really happy. I hope to hear more like this soon please Lucy.

a great northern giggle.

as a person feeling homesick for Hull this was brilliant, lucy Beaumont is a great observational comic who caught the essence of what growing up in hull with a single parent is like.

First listened to this on Radio 4. Even funnier second time round. Some great one liners and excellent comedy timing.
