Hilarious

I love this podcast. It’s a brilliant idea & the chat is always laugh out loud funny. Please do more new episodes.

Leyton Jay (@standup_fanatic ,

Great podcast, brilliant voice-work

Great podcast from two fantastic comedians whom I knew must know each other, but good to know theyre great friends too. Quite a big and sprawling podcast, I often get lost in those or tune-out but I follow this really well while driving cross-country at 7am. They both have great voices that convey a lot of emotion, but they also have very contrasting personalities and imrovise well together; all that makes this podcast fun and easy to follow and engage with even when people are driving like idiots in freezing fog.

Brilliant but with one tiny flaw

Love this podcast! Makes my commute to and from work more bearable.
However you never ask your guest whether they would like to have a coffee or tea at the end of the meal. You ask about water. You ask POPADOMS OR BREAD!!! But no coffee/tea at the end. Considering you are a magical restaurant with a genie waiter...

Still love you though. Keep doing what you doing guys x
