Crackanory Sheridan Smith

Dave has been on a roll with its comedy shows recently. Earlier in January two of its shows, Red Dwarf XI and Taskmaster, won Awards, with the former winning “Comedy of the Year”.

Another one of their shows that always makes for fun, if disturbing viewing, is their storytelling show Crackanory, where a different guest reads a different dark comic tale. This latest series see the stories expanded, with just one story per episode rather than two.

In tonight’s episode, Sheridan Smith narrates “Living with a Lie”, about a writer who tries to get off work by telling people that his battle-axe aunt is coming to visit, only for him to discover that his fictional relative has manifested and is at his front door.

Crackanory is on Dave at 22.00.
