Looking forward to the end of the week? Thank God it's Friday with Richard Glover and friends!

    TGIF finds itself

    TGIF finds itself

    On TGIF, our “iso” specials continue, as we get to know some of our regular panellists. This week Wil Anderson and Gretel Killeen both discuss how they searched for their true self – and found it in the unlikely  surroundings of a comedy club. Then stay listening for our final Letter from America with Tommy Dean, as our hero finds his way back to Ithaca, sorry Sydney, but is immediately placed under guard by the Australian navy.

    On TGIF, Richard Glover invites two more of our TGIF regulars to share their life stories. Listen as Gary Eck tells a ripper tale about working with the great Robin Williams, and Wendy Harmer paints a picture of the tough love of her childhood – and how it led to her role as Australia’s pioneer of female stand-up. Then stay with us from a final Letter from America with Tommy Dean as he plots his trip back to Australia.

    TGIF laughs last

    On TGIF, our special “iso” series continues, in which we get to know our TGIF regulars. This week, UK-born comic Jeff Green talks about how he came from a crowded council flat in Chester to life in Australia; then Jean Kittson paints an evocative picture of an Australian childhood and how it led to stand-up comedy at the Melbourne venue The Last Laugh, and then onwards to the Big Gig, Let the Blood Run Free, and her current advocacy around menopause and care for the elderly. Then stick around at the end for another Letter from America – this week with a somewhat emotional Tommy Dean.

    On TGIF we kick off a new series of show in which we get to know some of our favourite comedians – it’s like a Zoom party with our TGIF regulars. This week Richard Glover is joined by Alice Fraser, whose show “Savage” has just started streaming on Amazon Prime, and our own Queen of Improv, Rebecca de Unamuno. Then stay listening for another Letter from America with Tommy Dean, as some of his fellow American start to “cry freedom” over the CoVid lockdown.
