    Bonus Episode: Vick Hope

    Bonus Episode: Vick Hope

    We are wrapping up this series of Table Manners with a very special bonus episode thanks to our pals at Sainbury’s.
    Last week, we hosted a summer soirée in London to celebrate the Taste the Difference summer range. What was not to love? Plenty of picky bits, ‘lo-fi dining’, a generous amount of rosé, a very loud - and well read and opinionated - audience & the wonderful Vick Hope as our guest. It was a total hoot, we loved listening to Vick talk about food and books and it felt like a very special summer evening. We’re off to enjoy our holidays and will be back in the autumn for a new series. Thanks to all our listeners for being the best, have a fabulous summer darlings X

    S13 Ep 22: Table Manners Live : Question Time

    As part of our live shows, we held a little Q&A in the second half… well I tell you what listeners - you are all really quite filthy !! For the next two weeks we’ve put together some of our favourite moments from the Q&As, and we have been cackling! We hope they make you laugh as much as they did us. In this week’s episode, there’s a ‘shag, marry, avoid’ theme going on & we discuss what mum’s boxing ring music would be… oh we do have a laugh with you lot! Enjoy! X

    S13 Ep 21: Vanessa Feltz

    The live show finale.. our second night from the London Palladium with the one and only Vanessa Feltz. Now seasoned West End pros, we put our feet up and let our guest do most of the talking. And frankly, I was completely grateful. If mum's red lip and leopard print are going to be upstaged by anyone, let it be Ms Feltz; rockin up in a sequin ball gown, along with a tower of Challah made by her daughter. This powerhouse talks to us about growing up in Totteridge and how her life revolved around food. We discuss her grandma’s chopped liver, the truth about custard, garage brunches & we even discuss whether semen is… ahem….Kosher? 
    Thank you everyone that came to our first live tour, it was so, so wonderful to meet so many of you, offer out vats of mum’s chicken soup and laugh ever so much. We had such a great time, mum even got tour blues on the Tuesday. We’ll be back next week with some uncensored audio from our live Q&As 🤪

What lovely lads! Go and listen here…

    S13 Ep 20: Julian Clary

    The Table Manners Live tour continues to it’s final destination: the world famous, London Palladium. And even better, on a Sunday night! With Lennie in full tour mode, it was an honour & complete treat to share our podcast in front of such a wonderful audience and with THE King of the Palladium, Julian Clary.
    Julian talks to us about what it takes to become a Palladium Hall Of Fame honouree (Lennie believes she is on her way), what’s eaten whilst playing poker with Joan Collins and pure nostalgia through broad beans!
    The perfect guest for the biggest Table Manners live show so far! This one will make you laugh x

Love the pod, not a fan of cancelling the LA show without notice

Bought tickets to the widely publicised LA show in Dec as a birthday gift for a dear British friend who is an expat. Flew in from Denver (sadly, not first class Virgin Atlantic!), took a 1.5 hour Uber, went to venue only to find they knew nothing of the show. There was actually a wake going on in the adjacent cemetery! On 4/24 episode they say the cancellation was beyond their control, but I have to believe it could have been communicated better. Luckily, dear friend & I had a good (albeit very expensive) laugh about the adventure.
