Barmy Dale – The Sitcom is one of fifteen podcasts to listen to in 2020 according to a recent article appearing on FeedSpot.

Barmy Dale harks back to the sort of classic comedy sitcom you would have watched or listened to if you grew up in the 60s,70s and 80s. Inspired by the writing of Croft and Perry, Barmy Dale offers the listener a gentle easy comedy that can be appreciated by all of the family.

Conceived in July 2020 and written by the writing partnership of Skellern and Wheeldon, Barmy Dale has featured all new episodes on BBC Radio Derby on a monthly basis. Each episode is played over 5 nights and then released on podcast as a full twenty minute episode.

With an already growing international audience the sitcom recently received the news it had been shortlisted for the Best Comedy Podcast award by DiscoverPods.

The sitcom revolves around a fictional Derbyshire town called Barmy Dale, and around two couples who share their residence in Dale Lane during lockdown. Keith and Dan whose rivalry often descends into chaotic and eccentric misadventure centre around each story, with their wives Gracie and Sharon being dragged along for fun.

A stellar cast of regular actors includes Juliet Howland as Gracie, (The Painted Veil) recently announced as Natti Cauthon in Amazon’s upcoming new series The Wheel of Time based on the books by Robert Jordan and Camilla Simson as Sharon fresh from Blackeyed Theatre’s recent tour of Jane Eyre.Guest and regular returning stars include Will Chitty, Bethan Nash and Kate Skellern.

A nostalgic theme tune composed by Jordan Frater completes the package.
