Episode 1 of Keeping Athena Company.
Being a new parent whilst living with your mum is HARD WORK. In this podcast, special guests pop round to visit comedian and writer Athena Kugblenu (BBC Radio, Time Out, Stylist) so she can keep up with the world and have a well deserved break.
Athena is joined by comedian and voice over artist Russ Peers. Amongst other things, we chat about his love of Strictly Come Dancing, reaching out to your crush on Facebook, sex euphemisms (warm pie???) and the correct way to eat plantain. Enjoy!
Russ is a fellow BBC New Comedian of the Year Finalist. He is a regular presenter on the Talk Radio Weekend Breakfast Show and brings down comedy clubs with his unique brand of cutting, observational humour all over the UK.
"He's one of those people who's just born with it.'
BBC Radio 4 Extra Comedy Club
"Deliciously dry observations and witty one liners...The odds of a promising career in comedy are...well stacked and definitely in his favour."
