Isy Suttie's Love Letters

Ok, this is a recommendation for anyone comically inclined to tune into Radio 4 on Tuesday night at 6:30pm, and at that time every Tuesday for the next 4 weeks, and listen to the beautifully funny programme Isy Suttie's Love Letters

The show had originally aired on Radio 4 Extra this past month, and I've loved every one of them. Isy is a really funny storyteller with a knack for that most difficult of beasts; the comedy song, in a manner not too dissimilar to greats like Victoria Wood and John Shuttleworth.

Here's what Radio 4 has to say about the show

Isy Suttie (Dobby from Channel 4's Peep Show and double British Comedy Award nominee) returns to BBC Radio 4 with these unique tales, recounting a series of love stories affecting people she's known throughout her life, told partly through song.

Sometimes Isy has merely observed other people's love lives; quite often she's intervened, changing the action dramatically - for better or worse. Interwined within these stories are related real life anecdotes from Isy's own, often disastrous love life.

With her multi-character and vocal skills, plus her guitar, Isy creates a hilarious and deeply moving world, sharing with us her lessons in life and love.

And yes...

...Yes I am ;)
