What Can I Say?
I listen to it every week...
I laughed I cried, I made rotisery chicken for my dinner
This is a brillient show.
I love learning about what goes on in the background at these comedy shows.
Yet I had better warn you not to liten to it before dinner. Because eventualy they will talk about food, and good food at that.
My favourite guests are almost always the comics - and these guys have so many great ones on!!
