Lucy Montgomery's Variety Pack - Episode 4


Lucy Montgomery's Variety Pack is a multi-paced, one woman Fast Show for BBC Radio 4 showcasing the exceptional talent of Lucy Montgomery. Featuring Lucy Montgomery, Philip Pope, Sally Grace, Waen Shepherd and Natalie Walter. Written by Lucy Montgomery with additional material by Steven Burge, Jon Hunter and Joe Wilkinson. Music by Philip Pope Produced by Katie Tyrrell In the final episode of the series, posh privately educated teenagers Daisy and Maisie show prospective parents around their school. Joanna Lumley visits her mother with a Christmas present and the Mona Lisa lets us into a secret. Lucy Montgomery is a rare and multifaceted performer. Like Paul Whitehouse, she's a true chameleon who can embrace any character with uncanny accuracy, from a non-stop chattering public school girl to an 80-year-old diva. Laugh-out-loud, mainstream funny in attitude, her intelligence and Barry Humphries-esque glee give her characterisations a smart and distinctive edge that's hugely appealing to young and old alike. Lucy's honed her talents on Radio 4 shows as diverse as the Sony Gold winning Down the Line, The Museum of Everything, The Department, Another Case of Milton Jones, Mastering the Universe, Torchwood, The Don't Watch With Mother Sketchbook and The Way We Live Right Now. On television she has made her mark on BBC THREE's TittyBangBang, BBC ONE's Armstrong and Miller, and - coming soon to BBC TWO - Bellamy's People.
