Sorry About Last Night

A BBC Radio Comedy


Alexei Sayle's quirky comedy about life, love and not living together

'One of the most innovative series of recent years' Radio Ha Ha

Just because you're in love, doesn't mean you're meant to spend your life together, right?

Having read Women are from Mars and Men are from Croydon and Set Sail on the SS Relationship, unemployed ex-soldier Andy thinks it's about time he and his left-wing lawyer girlfriend Julie headed into deeper waters. But there's plenty in their way, from comically grim airport trips and fancy dinner parties, to nearly causing the assassination of the Prime Minister and discovering Andy's dad has been living a double life.

While navigating holiday mishaps and dinner party disasters, should they move in together? Or even get married?

Written by and starring Alexei Sayle in his earliest radio production, this funny, surreal look at love and relationships also stars Siobhan Redmond (McLevy, Holby City) as Julie, with Nadim Sawalha (West is West, The Bill), Adjoa Andoh (Bridgerton, Doctor Who), Chris Pavlo (ElvenQuest, 15 Storeys High), Gary Bleasdale (Harry Enfield and Chums, Boys from the Blackstuff) and Doon MacKichan (Smack the Pony, Brass Eye).
