Welcome to Don't Laugh But... - A podcast straight from the twatmosphere with comedian Kirsty Hudson and author Rebecca Elliott.
To our minds there aren’t enough female, midlifer voices being heard just chatting about regular stuff (not just motherhood!) so here we are - finding the funny in this crazy thing called life. Every week, with the listeners help, we investigate a subject, sometimes heavy (death, disability...) sometimes light (parties, supermarkets...) in an honest yet friendly and (we hope), funny way. Think of it as going out for a coffee (or gin) with your best mates, but without the need to actually leave the house or offer to feed our pets when we’re away.
Here’s a few of our reviews from our lovely ‘Butter’ family;
“Love this! Really enjoying listening to you funny, erudite, eloquent women and thinking 'Oh my god, YES' all the way through.”
“I love the honesty, cutting humour, vulnerability, trust and so much more.”
“If you’re looking for a different podcast, check this one out! I love the discussions! So real, intimate and funny.”
Come join us. You’re very welcome.

Real women. Real stuff. Real stoopid.

    Thruples, Twizzling Knobs and Mark

    Thruples, Twizzling Knobs and Mark

    Good to be back from gardening leave, touching on all the hard-hitting subjects, from 4ft phalluces to twizzling knobs and bringing back all the old favourites from Rebecca's crevice with cows on flumes to flying fish cakes and deers in thruples. Enjoy.

    Supercentenarians, Pubs & Croissants

    Coming back, guns fully, (or at least semi) cocked with Poland being terrified by the most mysterious of creatures, the croissant. Also featuring a smattering of the Gates splitting up, dishwashers playing hide and seek, tired thieves in the night and strangers waking you up to tell you they're hungry. Enjoy. x

    Smear Tests, Agadoo & Sloths

    Smear Tests, Agadoo & Sloths

    This week we are delving in to deep dark galaxies, but it’s not all about Rebecca’s smear test, no we are visiting the Milky Way, stopping by the Diet of Worms, all set to a beautiful soundtrack of sloths screaming for their carnal pleasure whilst Kirsty sings Agadoo. Come and join us, and we can all be dangling horny bags of digesting leaves, together.

    Flamboyance, Fridge Love and FYI

    This week we’re weather beaten, yet still manage to stay full of drivel, from relations with Italian delivery men on the pool table to Bury St Edmund’s beloved Ouida and her purple pen of passion. From chalky atmospheres to talky twatmospheres to a cacophony of disastrous cake messages. Come join us in the bewildering world of Don’t laugh But, where failing is fabulous and mediocre a must. x

    Birds, Bees and Waxy Mr T.s

    Birds, Bees and Waxy Mr T.s

    From the birds and the bees to the centipedes… We’re coming at you this week with another (and we use the word loosely)  *fun* packed episode. We bring you Wisdom the 70 year old who’s just given birth again and whose mooing skills on the dance floor put the rest of us to shame. Cats that can type, a fight to the death in Argos ooh and of course it’s DLB book review week where we give our thoughts (because we don’t do that enough) on this month’s literary offering ‘The Making of Us’ by Lisa Jewell.  Enjoy and as always, wrap up warm. x

    Roger Moore, Goats & Meteorites

    Roger Moore, Goats & Meteorites

    It's that time again... your weekend dose of DLB, brightening your day, giving you the odd chuckle but mostly delivering the bliss and pleasure of being so grateful that you are not us. 
    This week we outdo ourselves.  Seriously...what other podcast is discussing the fearful nature of goats eyes, with a touch of superman’s sore knees? It’s pure and utter nonsense at its very best. We even spoil you with a smattering of Sir Roger Moore. Enjoy. x

Clumsy Dormouse ,

Laugh out loud and burn the dinner funny

I listen to podcasts while I cook dinner. I really get annoyed by people with headphones on laughing hysterically, but that's come back to bite me. Usually people come into the kitchen and, even when I'm listening to comedy, find me almost expressionless listening to a podcast. Maybe a bit of a smile if it's comedy. Now I have tears rolling down my cheeks as I laugh helplessly, and then commit an even worse crime and rip my headphones off and tell them what I'm laughing at - badly, very badly. Sorry family, don't let that put you off. You really should listen to this. And sorry about the burnt dinners, but I get distracted ... We all need a good healthy dose of laughter right now, so work your way through from part 1, or 2, or at the latest 3, depending - you'll see. The only thing wrong with this podcast is that I can't join in with the conversation. Stop shouting at the tv and start yelling at your headphones and a, hopefully, empty room instead.
