Summary

Susan Calman hosts this BBC Radio panel game exploring the wonderful world of lists

Presented by writer, comedian and self-confessed listomaniac Susan Calman, this hilarious show celebrates the power of the humble list - from 'Buzzfeed' to 'bucket' and everything in between.

Accompanying Susan for a spot of comic categorising are a panel of special guests, including Lucy Porter, Joe Lycett, Richard Herring, Katherine Ryan, James Acaster, Miles Jupp, Lucy Beaumont, Nat Luurtsema, Alun Cochrane, Sarah Millican, Ricky Wilson, Roisin Conaty and Isy Suttie. Together, they participate in a variety of anarchic games themed around lists both magnificent and mundane.

What would be on Mary Poppins' to-do list? What things should you resolutely avoid doing before you die? And can you tell the difference between a list of 'My Little Pony' names and a list of illegal narcotics? All these questions, and more, are tackled by the plucky panellists, who are also challenged to improvise their own quickfire lists, including 'fresh quirks for a TV detective', 'new additions to the Ten Commandments' and 'Disney dwarves that were left out of the final 7'.

Full of great gags, diverting topics and off-the-wall trivia, Listomania is sure to make your list of favourite radio comedy shows - so grab a pen and paper and join in the fun!
