    217: Food, flying and false teeth with Daniel Varani

    217: Food, flying and false teeth with Daniel Varani

    Is booze really stronger when you're on a flight? What did Diana Ross allegedly try to smuggle on Concorde? And is it ever OK to put cheddar in a spaghetti carbonara? Answering all these questions is one of our favourite people - it's Daniel Varani! 
    He tells us all about his 15 years working as an air steward, from the weird things passengers leave on their food trays to dealing with people trying to join the mile-high club. Then we chat about Daniel's experience of growing up in London with Italian parents, and how food helped keep him connected to his mum in lockdown. He reveals his authentic bolognese recipe, and blows our minds by sharing the proper way to put parmesan on pasta. We finish off with some Scummy Mummy Confessions, including one from our very own Godfather. 
    Daniel's brilliant book, Danny's Kitchen, is available now. You can follow him on Instagram @dannyskitchen_hove.
    And it's not too late to book tickets for our Christmas show! We're coming to Clapham, Brighton, Kent, Winchester, Stroud, Worcester, and more... Go to scummymummies.com for dates and tickets.

    212: Jarred Christmas on budgies, beatboxing, Hugh Jackman and hating golf

    212: Jarred Christmas on budgies, beatboxing, Hugh Jackman and hating golf

    How do budgies have it off? Is it OK to fancy your father in-law? And what one thing should you always do when pooing at someone else's house? Answering all these questions is the hilarious comedian Jarred Christmas! 
    Yes, that is his real name, and if you think that's funny wait till you hear what the rest of his family is called. He tells us about growing up on a military base, being buddies with Hugh Jackman, and embarrassing himself in front of Tom Cruise. 
    We discuss why Jarred is disappointed in his kids for not swearing, and his hatred of golf. Plus: are cats c***s? 
    NB: Sorry about the budgie noises, especially at the beginning - they do settle down a bit, honest. 
    Do go and see Jarred and Hobbit's brilliant show, The Might Kids Beatbox Comedy Show - "It's the best kids' show I've ever seen," says Ellie, and she's seen a lot of that shit. Dates and tickets are over at mightykidsbeatboxcomedy.com.
    For more from Jarred go to jarredchristmas.com and follow him on Instagram @jarredchristmascomedian.
