    The complete BBC Radio 4 collection by the BAFTA nominated and NTA award winning Miranda Hart.

    Miranda is an unconventional woman. She’s six feet tall, self-conscious and posh. And is frequently mistaken for a man. She’s also invested her inheritance in a joke shop that she runs with her friend Stevie while trying to deal with her outrageously embarrassing mother.

    Though surrounded by chocolate willies, Miranda is determined to suss out what it takes to be a girly girl and to not look a complete idiot every time she meets the gorgeous Gary.

    Starring Miranda Hart, Sarah Hadland, Patricia Hodge and Tom Ellis.

    This collection also includes the previously unavailable pilot episode where Alison Steadman played Miranda's mother Penny, and Morwenna Banks was Stevie.

    Miranda Hart’s Joke Shop – first broadcast on BBC Radio 2 – is written by Miranda Hart (Hyperdrive, Absolutely Fabulous, Lead Balloon), with James Carey (My Family, Think the Unthinkable) and Simon Dean (Not Going Out). It was the inspiration behind the hit TV show.

Miranda Hart was born in Torquay and grew up in Petersfield, Hampshire. She attended U.W.E and graduated with a 2:1 in Politics, and went on to do a postgraduate Acting course at the Academy of Live and Recorded Arts in London. After numerous stand-up and sketch shows at the Edinburgh Festival and London comedy clubs, her comic reputation was established and she was cast in several hit TV series including Smack the Pony, Nighty Night and Not Going Out. She earned a British Comedy Award nomination as Best Female Comedy Newcomer for her role in cult sci-fi sitcom Hyperdrive, in which she co-starred with Nick Frost and Kevin Eldon. In 2008, her radio sitcom Miranda Hart's Joke Shop was broadcast on Radio 2, and in 2009, she got her own TV series, Miranda. The show was extremely popular, and won her three British Comedy Awards and a Broadcasting Press Guild Award. Since then, she has starred as Chummy in Call the Midwife (a role which earned her a BAFTA nomination) as well as appearing in the feature film Spy alongside Jude Law. She is also a regular on TV panel shows such as Have I Got News for You and Would I Lie to You, and has released a bestselling autobiography, Is It Just Me?
