My Teenage Diaries

My Teenage Diary is a six-part comedy series for BBC Radio 4, in which fully-grown comedians are given the chance to revisit their formative years by opening up their deeply intimate teenage diaries, and reading them out in public for the very first time.

Will they experience the warm glow of nostalgia, or the hot flush of embarrassment? The programme is hosted by stand-up comedian Rufus Hound. Rufus is joined each week by a special guest who reads out selected passages from their diaries. Guests have included Vanessa Feltz, Russell Kane, Ken Livingstone and Kate Mosse.

The show is recorded in front of a live audience which heightens the sense of embarrassment for the readers and also provides a laughter track to the hilariously excruciating moments from their diaries.
