Radio 4: The Programmes

In One Ear

Sadly, she's not even impersonating Bonnie Tyler there...‘DANGEROUS’ late-night live psuedo-alternative comedy sketches from Nick Wilton, Helen Lederer, Steve Brown and Clive Mantle. Quite a big deal in its day, winning tons of awards and also one of the few of their own radio shows that the BBC actually managed to pick up for TV adaptation in the eighties. Upon which it became the terrible Hello Mum, and everyone tried to forget about everything to do with it.

    Whatever happened to Helen Lederer, she was a big noise in the comedy new wave in the mid eighties and was then never heard of again?

    She seemed to turn up in things well into the 1990s, not seen much since the mid 1990s revival of Going For a Song.

    @ Richard Davies, of her time, quite liked her neurotic woman bit on sketch shows.
