    Introducing... Please Tell Me A Story

    Introducing... Please Tell Me A Story

    Hello Quilting fans! Here's a new show from our team... Omid tells his story to Abi. Abi tells Omid’s story to Sean, then Sean to Kai, Kai to Sikisa and Sikisa to Helen… each time with hilarious misrememberings, improvisations, stumbles, fumbles and laughs. Six comedians have a funny story to tell. Can they pass the story along the chain without completely twisting the tale? But this isn’t like the game you play at school where you only whisper short sentences. Each episode is a complete, beautifully written story, with each retelling getting funnier (and weirder!) as it passes on. And boy, does season one of Please Tell Me A Story feature an all star comedy cast: Omid Djalili, Abi Clarke, Seán Burke, Kai Samra, Sikisa, and Helen Bauer. Join them as the story gets weird…

I ADORE this show

Mel, and Bush, are hilarious! I am a hand quilter, and I absolutely love listening to you guys, while I’m working on my many quilting projects. PLEASE MAKE A SECOND SEASON! Thank you both so much, for keeping the Beautiful craft of Quilting alive, and many thanks for all the laughs and friendships through this awkward time.

Hilarious, charming and heartwarming

I genuinely have not laughed so hard in so long as I did while listening to this podcast. Mel and Bush play off each other so we’ll. They are incredibly witty and their journey making the quilt has been a joy to listen to. I hope they make a second season.
