    Mahmoud becoming the third/fourth character with Cardinal is magic. I think Mahmoud needs to keep being referenced. Find it so odd and perfect they both utilise him.
    I love how off the rails his description gets once Honeycomb Crunchy hair is mentioned...

    This PEAKED a bit too soon for me. I listened to the first 6 episodes back to back and was in a nonstop state of hysterical laughter. Like people have said it’s the most Nighty Night thing since Nighty Night. However when I came to listen to the final last two episodes, despite having moments of brilliance, it had become all abit too obvious and predictable. You just knew exactly where they were going to go with woman who got the facelift voucher off her husband and the gags became abit tired. It’s still absolute brilliance and I’ll be relistening to the whole shebang again though - just hope they mix it up abit in future episodes.

    GOOD NEWS:

    Joan and Jericha the filthy agony aunts are back with sex tips
    Julia Davis and Vicki Pepperdine, likened to the revered Derek and Clive, return with a second series of the hit podcast


    Sun 14 Oct 2018 07.00 BST


    It was the unflinchingly filthy surprise hit of the summer, a word-of-mouth success that ousted even Love Island’s podcast from the top of the charts. Now the thousands of secret fans of the deeply horrid advice show Dear Joan and Jericha have the news they have been hoping for – the duo who are known for jaw-dropping sexual frankness are coming back.

    Joan Damry and Jericha Domain, the fictitious local radio agony aunts at the heart of a succession of acclaimed and extremely risque advice sessions, were created by the actresses Julia Davis and Vicki Pepperdine in their spare time. And now, the Observer has learned, in response to the subversive triumph of the podcast series, the two comic stars are quietly collaborating on a new set of ad-libbed recordings.

    The show revolved around reactions to spoof readers’ letters on topics such as spicing up your sex life or dealing with unsightly blemishes.

    “They are sticking to the same format, because it worked so well,” said the show’s producer, Joel Porter. “So we might have something ready for the end of the year or early next year.”

    “It is very bleak humour,” said Cariad Lloyd, a comedian and a fan. “They go to places that are deeply sexual, uncomfortable and rude. When I’m listening I often think, ‘I can’t believe they said that.’ The running joke is that it’s always the women’s fault.”

    The BBC’s Podcast Radio Hour, which recommends good listens, issued two warnings before playing the “tamest” clip it could find, to prevent viewers “choking on their tea”.

    The podcast, which began in April and shot to the top of the iTunes podcast chart, has earned comparisons with Peter Cook and Dudley Moore’s naughtiest alter egos, Derek and Clive.

    The tapes made by the late comedians in the 1970s, when the pair were often drunk, gained a huge following despite being too coarse to be broadcast by mainstream radio or TV. In 2009 it was revealed that the tapes had provoked obscene publications squads to demand their ban. In keeping with their times, the stories Derek and Clive told each other regularly revolved around lewd sexual exploits and played dangerously with prevalent misogyny. Davis and Pepperdine, while equally forthright, are instead parodying a modern culture in which women are encouraged to improve themselves to compete in attracting men.

    “The success of the series is down to the brilliance of Julia and Vicki,” said Porter. “They record it on their own. They script the questions, then push each other as far as they can with the answers. It works because they are such beautifully believable and excruciatingly funny characters.”

    I can’t find the thread we were talking about it in but I just THOROUGHLY enjoyed the Q&A and screening of the first series of “Nighty Night” at the BFI. Everyone was there bar Rebecca Front (filming in Scotland) and apparently a third series is being talked about!

    When ARE we getting the second series of this? I don’t care if it’s more of exactly the same. I WANT more of exactly the same!

    I enjoyed this short piece in the Guardian. New series nearly ready apparently...

    ‘There is probably a vagina in every episode’ Dear Joan And Jericha

    Actors and writers Julia Davis and Vicki Pepperdine have been friends for more than 20 years, working together often. Mainstays of the British comedy scene, they are probably best known for the black comedy Nighty Night. Their podcast, Dear Joan And Jericha, in which the duo play local radio agony aunts who tackle listeners’ sex, life and relationship issues in an entirely inappropriate manner, became a near instant word-of-mouth hit when it was launched a year ago, and went on to win best comedy at the 2019 British Podcast Awards.

    Series one (a snappy eight 20-minute episodes) calls to mind the absurd sex tips from women’s magazines, mixed in with your mum’s most insensitive and outrageous off-hand comments. In true Davis and Pepperdine form, it is filthy. It’s not just the hilarious improvised asides that have won the podcast a multitude of fans, but the way it openly addresses messy sex, bodily functions and anatomy, as well as emphasising that it’s not always men who are responsible for exacerbating women’s insecurities.

    Why did you want to start a podcast?

    Vicki: Well, we didn’t even think about a podcast in the beginning. We were just playing around with ideas.

    Julia: The characters emerged. We didn’t want anyone to tell us what to do, which is what happens in TV.

    V: [To Julia] I think you suggested a podcast. And I didn’t really know about podcasts. It’s a generational thing, I guess. Then we did it and people said, “You need to advertise it.” And we said, “Shall we just see if people find it?” – and they did.

    What are your red lines – where wouldn’t you go?

    J: It comes down to the tone of it. You can go almost anywhere. But you can listen back and go: “That’s actually really sick and distressing.” It’s whether or not you are still finding it funny.

    V: I think there’s something about talking very openly about what, for years, has been a sort of no-go, gynae area – young women in particular seem to be emboldened by it.

    Who are your podcast/radio heroes?

    V: I listen to My Dad Wrote A Porno. I think that’s great.

    J: Derek and Clive. I’m a massive Peter Cook fan. Obviously they’re not podcasters. I think, similarly to Vicki, I didn’t listen to a lot of podcasts. On a train I always just want to look at people and listen to their conversations.

    What has been your favourite episode to date?

    J: That’s a really hard one. The godson one we quite liked.
    I certainly can’t remember whole episodes. We like it when we get a bit carried away describing men. Going into the detail of their physicality.

    V: Inappropriate appraisals. We try to group the subjects, so there’s not three vaginas in every episode.

    J: Although there probably is a vagina in every episode.

    Is there such a thing as an overshare?

    J: I would say no.

    V: I don’t think we could ever overshare with one another. It’s a bond of trust.

    J: I would say that, with any really close friend, you should be able to say anything. Whereas our parents’ generation – I’m sure my mum, who is no longer here, didn’t have anything like that. And that must be quite horrible. Because you want someone to say, “I get things.” But we’ve definitely recorded things that we think, “That’s gone sick in a way we don’t find funny.”

    V: We don’t censor ourselves when recording, and then sometimes it’s come out in a way that might be misinterpreted. So we edit.

    When can we expect the new series to be out?

    V: We are towards the end of recording it, so we don’t know exactly yet. But it will happen. That’s as precise as we can be. We record it in Julia’s kitchen. We thought it was going to be just for us, and it turns out people like it.

    Same. I could seriously do with another 6 to 8 eps of this. Especially keen to find out if Mahmoud's skills have been called upon recently.

    I’m obviously desperate for a second series of this, so have been returning to series 1 in the meantime and still finding new things to be amused by

    ”Lovely boobs. Fantastic boobs.” :D

    I do hope they’ve been sent some more lovely picture of AZEBO :horny:

    I do fear for that poor woman’s prolapse though. Sometimes it can all just suddenly POUR OUT!

    I can keep listening to series 1 and STILL find new things to laugh at. Last time it was Joan building a cottage on top of her castle in Galbrieth to get around pesky planning permissions :disco:
