Ed Reardon's Week (BBC Audio) by Ed Reardon
8 of 8 people found the following review helpful
BBC Radio has produced a number of celebrated gems. But those with the most luster tend to be the ones still hidden to all but a few. Ed Reardon's Week is an example of this. The wry cynicism and yet, oddly, life-affirming stoicism imbued in the series provides a subtle mix of comedy, pathos and bathos which makes for wonderful listening. By series five, in between the laughs, you will truly care for Ed and his cat in a way that will surprise you and charm you in equal measure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enduring art, 24 Oct 2000
Sketch-show? No chance. This work of art by one of the few people alive today who might be termed, without a scintilla of irony, a genius, achieves something that the Absurdists, at their most crafty, couldn't: it is at once poignantly moving, deeply profound, shockingly dirty and joyfully silly.
