  • Listen in on award-winning comedian Tom Wrigglesworth’s family phone calls in these five fantastic series

    ‘A keenly observed, comical joy’ Stuart Heritage, The Guardian

    In these 24 episodes, Tom Wrigglesworth phones home for his weekly check-in, giving us a funny, fascinating glimpse into his family background and the influences that have shaped his temperament, opinions and hang-ups. As the conversations unfold, Tom takes time out from the calls to explain the situation and his parents’ reactions, and relate various anecdotes from the past which illustrate his family's views.

    And sometimes he just needs to sound-off about life’s everyday annoyances. There’s the fact his parents don’t trust him with his own car or sister, some terrifying stag weekend shenanigans, a neighbourly good deed that lands Tom in trouble and a dodgy exchange on a train. Meanwhile, Mum and Dad deal with a problematic package holiday, a flood at the family home, an unexpected Christmas visitor and some new neighbours – while Gran enters the cut-throat world of competitive well-dressing, tries to help Tom with a ‘gambling situation’ and gets involved in smuggling.

    But amid the trials and tribulations, there are triumphs, as Dad celebrates a milestone in governmental reform, Mum learns to drive and Tom recounts a milestone in his own life – the arrival of his newborn twin daughters.

    Tom Wrigglesworth's Hang-Ups lets us eavesdrop on the Wrigglesworth clan in all their dysfunctional glory – so sit back and enjoy a bit of totally legal phone hacking in thesehilarious helpings of down-the-line adventures.Tom Wrigglesworth stars as himself, with Judy Parfitt, Rita May and Elizabeth Bennett as Granny, Paul Copley as Dad, Kate Anthony as Mum and Amy Wrigglesworth as Amy.
