New Radio 4 sitcom coming soon…
Jess will star alongside Radio 4 veteran Richie Webb, when he returns to the airwaves this September as performance shy cocktail pianist Nigel Penny.
Nigel Penny’s attempts to live his life in the background are thwarted by the surprise arrival of his entrepreneurial half-brother, Pav (Paul GRaymond). Pav hooks Nigel up with desperate wannabe singer Rachel (Jess) and strong-arms the pair onto the books of his fledgling entertainment agency.
With a gig at a Carpenters-themed wedding on the horizon, Nigel has to contend not only with his job at an Italian Restaurant run by a probably-not-an-actual-Italian, but also with Pav’s mysterious new Ukrainian friend, Stan (Dave Lamb), and some disturbing news about his new musical partner.
