Cally Beaton's Improper Use of a Faberge Yam

Eyre-Leigh Doors

Gorgeous episode featuring Cally Beaton from QI, The Apprentice You're Fired, off of Radio 4 and an absolute cracking stand up comedian. But, you know, she *may* have ruined Louise's life in the 90s so we have to start with that.Because of Cally's years of work as a top telly executive and as a sought-after comedian and speaker, the celebrity name-dropping is plentiful. We have Elton John at Cally's beck and call, Sandi Toksvig on a dashboard and Joan Rivers like you've never imagined her before. She would approve. Possibly.Yes a yam is used in a way that only the sickest of minds could imagine, yes there is chat about raising kids in the 21st Century, why imposter syndrome reigns in even the most successful-looking people and a tale of ice cream corruption.We chat midlife superpowers, the joy of shoplifting and other ways to get your adrenaline fix. Oh, and you should the terrible thing that happens to Oprah Winfrey!In the show, Cally and Pauline share their love of comedian Richard Todd, whose show you can watch on Next Up Comedy if you're a member there, or better still seek him out live near your home. They also mention the hilarious Nathan Cassidy. Check him out if you get a chance.In other news, if you are around this weekend (19th/20th June) in Brighton, you can get 2-4-1 tickets to our live editions by turning up at the Sweet Venues box office and saying the magic words: "Choose it or Lose it" . So tell your friends. The venue will be beautifully socially distant and Covid Secure.Thanks so much for listening to the podcast, whether this is your first time, or if you do it week after week.
