Nether Regions Hits The Air

Rob's new radio comedy coming soon!

11 October, 2019

You might recall earlier this year that a pilot was recorded for Rob Grant's new radio series - indeed, you might even have been one of the lucky audience members to see it happen. Well, we're pleased to report that the pilot in question is finally making its way to BBC Radio 4 later this month.

Nether Regions Hits The Air

The Nether Regions was co-created by Rob and Quanderhorn Xperimentations collaborator Andrew Marshall, and promises to be a surreal and sideways sketch show experience:

Welcome to... The Nether Regions: a place where the laws of physics and even time itself take a day off, put their feet up and watch daytime television in their underpants.

This is our world, today, though not quite the today we know. And not entirely the world we live in. But nearly.

Your guides through this madness, fresh from their success creating The Quanderhorn Xperimentations: Rob Grant (Red Dwarf) and Andrew Marshall (2point4children), together with young performers, new to radio but familiar to the Job Centre.

Come with us to a land of Bastards, Boobs and Bottoms, where nobody wears any underwear, even though it's permanently winter. No, not Newcastle: it's Throne of Forks.

Join old men talking Sh*t - the call-in hosts of Impotent Rage FM - London's premier station for exasperated seniors.

Meet the permanently angry chef, who vents his foul-mouthed invective on diners with the temerity to question his serving Chicken on an Electric Fence with a side of Gasping Fish.

Recoil in disgust as you witness the appalling conditions in backstreet emoji farms.

Let Rob and Andrew and their callow young carers take you on a whistle stop tour of uncannity and strangeositude.

Performed before a live studio audience and a dead wasp.

The pilot is broadcast on Radio 4 on Thursday 24th October at the suitably spooky hour of 11pm - and as is usually the case, it'll be available online and on the BBC Sounds app afterwards. Make sure you tune in, and hopefully we'll be able to take another trip to the Nether Regions before too long...
