5.0 out of 5 stars Ed Reardon is a great comic creation, 1 May 2009
Ed Reardon is, quite simply, the funniest thing I've heard on the radio since the demise of the late, great Linda Smith. The tales of this Berkhampsted-based writer is a complete and utter joy.

Writer Christopher Douglas plays Ed with aplomb. The `supporting' cast, who include such notables as Philip Jackson, John Fortune, Geoffrey Whitehead and Sally Grace, are wonderfully understated, and it is a particularly nice touch that one of the actresses from the `real' Tenko - Stephanie Cole - gets to play one of his long-suffering students.

Ed's character is brilliantly drawn, revealing both acerbic wit and delicate pathos. Reardon is the master of the fare-dodge and a freebie-grabber extraodinaire. Whether teaching his highly astute, elderly students at the University of the Third Age, or endeavouring to eke out the dubious fame of his long-forgotten Tenko* script and his magnum opus, 'Who Would Fardles Bear?' at literary events, Ed brilliantly maintains his air of superiority over the rest of the human race.

He is devoted to his cat, Elgar. Nuff said.

Great comedy. I would highly recommend this CD.
