Join friends and improv buds Ann Hirst (the terrified writer) and Tim Merryweather as they drink tea and chat about what they've been up to over the past week. Oh and they might throw in the odd bit of improv. That sounded better in their heads. Tune in, you might be surprised. They were.

    6: ok karen

    ann discovers she's really karen but doesn't give a shit and there are updates on tim's career and dishwasher-gate, from way back when in episode 2 or 3 or something. tim's got a bugbear with impractical pub toilet cubicles and ann's dodging the mother-of-the-year awards for the sixteenth year running. plus some live (recorded) improv in which ann gives tim a present. oh, and welcome to all our new listeners, from all over the world!

    5. you can make a sword out of cornflakes

    5. you can make a sword out of cornflakes

    warning: this is a koala-heavy episode. weirdly, animal lover tim doesn't like them, ann does, so you can only imagine the mild-mannered non-debate that ensues. what about you, listener? do you have any thoughts on koalas? cute or devil spawn? let us know, we're genuinely interested! 😃🐨there's also a career update from tim (obvs), a literal highlight for ann and some improv that features, yeah, you got it, bloody koalas. sheesh. how much more exciting can these episodes get? (that's a rhetorical question, we already know the answer 😐)

    4: not posh and phoney

    4: not posh and phoney

    this week tim shares a couple of phoney bugbears and ann declares she's definitely not posh, despite living close to Waitrose. there's a career update from tim, a sponsorship update from ann and a tear-jerker of an improv scene involving two unusual household items on a mountain trek.
    You'd be completely within your rights to give it a miss.

    3: ann meets a comedy legend

    3: ann meets a comedy legend

    This week, tim gives us a career update and describes what it's like to eat meat rope and ann might be rubbish at celeb spotting but recounts a wünderbar encounter with the glorious Eddie Izzard. Also, is it pronounced GIF or GIF? 🤔And stay till the end if you want to hear us perform some real (imagined) live (recorded) improv.💡🥮
