Miranda Hart's Joke Shop

Miranda is an unconventional woman: a tall, life-embracing, self-effacing clown, who's at her happiest amongst the wind-up teeth of her Joke Shop.

Lacking the organisational skills needed for retail (or anything else).

Miranda has gone into partnership with Stevie, one of Britain's greatest humour vacuums.

Stevie mans the till for hours at a time whilst Miranda 'pops out' on regular, self-imposed challenges.

Miranda is determined to suss out what it takes to be a girly girl, to deal with her outrageously embarrassing mother in public places, to get herself a boyfriend and to persuade other people to take life less seriously.

Meet Miranda, a tall, life-embracing, self-effacing clown, who's at her happiest among the wind-up teeth of her Joke Shop. She's got lots to learn about retail and men - as well as coping with her embarrassing mother.

This is the 2007 pilot for Miranda's four-part 2008 series made for BBC Radio 2, which sparked her popular BBC TV series Miranda. This try-out features some actors who were replaced in the subsequent slightly re-worked radio series. Here Alison Steadman plays Miranda's mother Penny, and Morwenna Banks is Stevie. Also featuring Vincenzo Pellegrino, Katy Brand, Alice Hart, Jim Howick and Charlotte McDougall.

Produced by Lucy Armitage.
