RHLSTP Ed 2019 #7 Spencer Jones and Janey Godley and Ashley Storrie - Scottish Russian Dolls. Richard has just witnessed the most arrogant and obnoxious person of Edinburgh 2019 and they aren’t even a comedian or himself reflected in a window, but it’s nice to know that he always sees something worth talking about on his walk to the theatre. His guests are all utter comedy geniuses: Spencer Jones and Janey Godley and the comedian she magically produced from herself, Ashley Storrie. Spencer talks about where he gets his crazy ideas and how to make comedy from mundane objects in life, his tricky first gigs as Herbert Clunkerdunk and what his fifth season would involve. Janey and Ashley talk about how they have conquered the internet and ingratiated themselves with celebs (even if they don’t always recognise them), the dangerous stupidity of taking on either of them on social media, their refusal to compromise for TV folk and whether Catcher in the Rye is a price worth paying for not having John Lennon any more. And if Richard loves Ashley as much as he claims how come he isn’t following her on Twitter?Tickets for Spencer Jones here https://tickets.edfringe.com/whats-on/spencer-jones-the-things-we-leave-behindSee his brilliant TV show here - https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p065wbm9/the-mind-of-herbert-clunkerdunk-pilotInfo for Janey Godley’s Fringe show here - https://tickets.edfringe.com/whats-on/godley-on-the-fringeInfo for Ashley Storrie here https://tickets.edfringe.com/whats-on#q=%22Ashley%20Storrie%3A%20Hysterical%20%22All Fringe and tour links for RHLSTP here https://www.rhlstp.co.uk/website.cgi?page=gigsBuy Emergency Questions books and RHLSTP stickers and monthly badges at http://gofasterstripe.com For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy
