Miranda (Miranda Hart) is an unconventional woman. She’s six feet tall, self-conscious, posh and is frequently mistaken for a man but she is happiest amongst the wind-up teeth of her Joke Shop.
Having invested her inheritance to buy a joke shop but realising she has none of the organisational skills to run the place, Miranda partners up with her friend Stevie (Sarah Hadland). All the while Miranda is trying to learn about retail men and dealing with her outrageously embarrassing mother (Patricia Hodge).
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 (Tom Ellis) and to persuade people to take life a little less seriously.
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).

"She's terrific. Wasted on TV."
"Miranda Hart's Joke Shop is likeably silly"
