The star of Mae Martin’s Guide to 21st Century Sexuality (BBC Radio 4) examines a lifetime of obsessions, fandom and addiction with “effortlessly amusing, highly watchable charm” (★★★★ – The Times). Mae shines a light on that one weird shrimp we all have in our brains that is happy to pursue short-term pleasure, despite knowing the long-term negative consequences. She asks: who are we when we’re not addicted?

“Mae Martin might just change the way you think about LGBT comedy, or as she would call it, comedy” ★★★★★ – Mirror
“Infectious laughs…deftly delivered” ★★★★★ – Evening Standard
