It's not just boys who have all the fun, as this wide-ranging compilation demonstrates. 2CDs - compilation of clips from existing Radio Collection comedy titles presented by Maureen Lipman.
Some of the biggest names of comedy are here, from the founding mothers of the monologue to today's daughters of the double entendre. Amongst the many highlights are Caroline Aherne as deadpan Denise in 'The Royle Family', Jan Ravens and Kate Robbins making fun of the famous in 'Dead Ringers', Jennifer Saunders misbehaving to the hilt in 'Absolutely Fabulous', and Dawn French playing Geraldine, the babe with a bob and a magnificent bosom, in 'The Vicar Of Dibley'.
All-time favourites in the mix include Prunella Scales as the great gorgon Sybil Fawlty, Penelope Keith playing Marjorie Frobisher in 'To The Manor Born', and monologues and sketches from the likes of Victoria Wood, Thora Hird, Julie Walters and Patricia Routledge.
Representing the more time-honoured comedy classics, Betty Marsden is in fine vocal form in excerpts from 'Round The Horne', June Whitfield plays Ethel in 'The Glums', and the list of female comedy legends goes on with Hylda Baker, Joyce Grenfell, Elsie and Doris Waters, Jo Kendall and Sheila Hancock.
