Description

Sally Phillips stars as Clare in the first series of the acclaimed BBC Radio 4 comedy.

Like plenty before her, social worker Clare Barker has entered a caring profession so that she can sort out other people's problems rather than deal with her own. A control freak, Clare likes nothing better than interfering in other people's lives on both a professional and personal basis, while at the same time finding it a trial having to put up with tiresome members of the public. Politically correct, humourless, and prone to jargon, she is entirely lacking in self-awareness, making her encounters with colleagues, family, and her partner, Brian, wonderfully entertaining and richly comic.

Not bad, just not laugh-out-loud funny

A decent enough listen to pass the time, it just wasn't as funny as I hoped.

When you just need a good belly laugh

If I have had a hard day at work and want to listen to something light and funny, I reach for "Clare in the Community." Sally Phillips is perfect as the pompous, annoying, and eternally clueless Clare. The supporting cast is fantastic, but a special shout-out to Nina Conti as Clare's put-upon student Meghan. The only question is - why *didn't* Brian get rid of the horrid old bag and go off with the nice girlfriend?
