DEAR JOAN AND JERICHA by Julia Davis and Vicki Pepperdine is hilarious. Get on it Moopy.
Only listened to one episode and it is indeed AMAZING
'You've got an AIDsy, gaunty, nutty look, you look a bit gender fluidy' in their comment to Celia looking for advice on role play, recommending she try Dot Cotton 'from Walford? Well, she's from Truro, but she can pretend'
And that's before the woman they encourage to watch her 11 year old son wank. 'Husbands come and go - sons will pretty much throughout their life always be up for it'
Fantastic. I'm guessing it's heavily improvised.
This is when I knew I was IN
Sounds like it - seems they go with whatever the other has said and build on it. Several moments of barely-concealed corpsing, particularly in later episodes. The Grease moment is especially
Joan pronouncing every 'w' word as 'wh' gets me EVERY TIME too
I read a review that compared Julia Davis to Lorraine Kelly (pretty spot on) and Vicki Pepperdine to Clare Balding (slightly less so).
Two episodes in now and every problem is a highlight. Particularly enjoying how it often feels to me like Davis loads the gun for the really quite dark stuff, but how gleefully Pepperdine then runs with it.
I just listened to the first episode. I'm in.
So is Davis playing the Scottish character?
Love this hard
She is, yes.
I think I need to promote Julia within my top 10 favourite people of all time list.
Tagging @Zu-Klara for when she deigns to grace us with her presence/recovers her password.
I loved Jericha putting Joan on the spot re
the name of her new meat-infused shortbread range. Cue a slightly flustered Julia "Just... Meaty Breads"
I see there are 8 episodes so far. Do we know how many there are going to be? Worried I may need to ration this.
The most recent was released last Wed so I'm hoping it's ongoing
This is excellent
"She could try stuffing her toes up Aled's anus..." "or japs eye"
Oh ladies PLEASE bleach your anuses!
Oh shite, just finished Ep 8 and sounds like they’re on hiatus
This really is fucking brilliant
This is so so good. Only a woman could get away with this, especially with the description of the naked 17 year old!
Also "She's worried their might be FISTING".
Also the SHEEP DIP at the surprise party.
Episode 5 is my favourite so far - the conversation about her husband’s heart attack at the beginning of the episode
“I’m at the crossroads and I really would like him to take a turning left or right...I don’t want to be hovering at the Give Way sign”
Acid attacks = actually men spunking over women and children in shopping centres!
This is amazing.
“Why is someone gay? Usually because there’s a problem. And it’s usually the wife.”
I’ve just listened to the first episode and I’m DYING. Nobody wants to have sex with a bag of bones! All boys fancy their mums! Dress up as a lollipop lady!
I’m assuming Joan has some roots in Julia’s sadly scrapped show about daytime TV where she essentially was Lorraine.
Episode 8 is probably my favourite - the description of the twin sisters death “it just spun off its axis”
I've just listened to the first 3 of these are they are absolutely tremendous. Seriously pushing their luck a few times but the absolute best thing is how we're dropped into their world in medias res and we're expected to absorb various titbits as we go along (Jericha's son being called Cardinal, for example).
Cardinal is female. The story of Jericha wanking her to sleep using the contraption Mahmoud made for her to relieve her carpal tunnel syndrome is one of my favourites.
The term ‘disappointed womb’ has literally ended me!
Also the woman with the face like Seal!
That must come up in a later episode. Either that or I need to stop listening in the bath....
Yup, sure enough, early in Ep 4, Cardinal is a girl.
Just listened to 4 and 5, tremendous. I was absolutely aghast at the first minutes of Ep 5, not close to the bone but dug right into the bone and absolutely priceless.
This is just the BEST
I've been crying with laughter listening, I think it was episode 5 when she mispronounced him as GAZEBO which just ended me
I love how improvised it is as many times an episode you can hear Julia Davis cackling in the background
Oh the bits where you can hear them corpsing are the best. I love that in comedy - as much as I admire Chris Morris and his ability to keep a completely straight face, I love it when people amuse themselves as well.
Oh that is the best
I learnt that the only scripted bits of the podcast are the questions which they write in advance, the rest is totally improvised, which is amazing!
I am completely obsessed with this podcast. I do think it is the most Nighty Night thing I’ve come across since Nighty Night (still wonderful seeing Vicki Pepperdine with her eyebrows as Mrs Horner and hearing her now as Jericha).
Julia Davis as Lorraine Kelly as Joan saying “Grease” is a personal highlight.
I'd been recommended and was kinda "It's ok" on Episode 1 and then the AIDS comment took me over the edge and that was it. It's FUCKING BRILLIANT!
It definitely starts to establish its own warped world pretty quickly after episode one.
As soon as Vicki Pepperdine does the Pippa Moore doctor voice speaking about such things as Sex Chimneys and Kindercysts, I transcend body and soul with bliss.
I need more MAHMOUD in my life
Quite WITCHY in profile, isn't he?
