Taking Michael Spicer Back to Before he was Internet Famous

What happens when a part-time comedian producing online sketches suddenly becomes a global internet sensation? Ask man of the moment Michael Spicer, a kitchen worktop copywriter who managed to gauge the temperature of a nation – and get under the skin of people in power too!

Starstruck has produced Michael’s first ever broadcast commission, the multi award-winning Radio 4 sitcom, ‘Michael Spicer: Before Next Door’. The series explores the complexities and anxieties of superstardom as he began going viral with his Room Next Door sketches.

After a pioneering pilot in the summer of 2020 (produced virtually in the height of covid restrictions), we’ve since produced four award-winning episodes for series 1 and are currently in production on series two, set for release in summer 2022.
