Caroline Aherne Pop Art
Stylish pop art illustration of Caroline Aherne.

From the Manchester standup circuit to Christmas specials on primetime mainstream TV channels, Caroline Aherne’s acerbic wit & comedy talent deservedly was critically-acclaimed and had wide appeal.

Initially performing on the Manchester comedy circuit as characters including a tough Irish nun, Aherne started to develop her Mrs Merton character which debuted on the Granada channel in a pilot episode on the 5th of December 1993.

The sketch show with “The Dead Good Show” alongside Steve Coogan & John Thomson was followed by regular characters in “The Fast Show”.

The BBC commissioned the series of “The Mrs Merton Show” which premiered on the 10th of February 1995 with the classic Debbie McGee episode in which Mrs Merton asks the magician’s wife “what first, Debbie, attracted you to the millionaire Paul Daniels?”.

Sharp & quick-witted, Mrs Merton won the BAFTA for Best Chat Show as well as accolades at the British Comedy Awards.

There were four series of “The Mrs Merton Show” which ran until the 2nd of April 1998, after which Caroline created the show “Mrs Merton and Malcolm” with Brian Murphy.

As if one impactful show wasn’t enough, Aherne went on to create and perform in another – “The Royle Family” was popular and successful. Debuting on the 14th of September 1998, there were three series and Christmas specials, one of which reunited the “Billy Liar” couple Tom Courtenay & Helen Fraser.

Aherne’s final role was as the narrator of the TV-watching show “Gogglebox”.

The announcement of Aherne’s death at the age of 52 came as a shock to fans of her work, despite her documented treatments and her support of Macmillan.
