Lucy and Gina's Special Relationship

av Comedy of the Week | Publicerades 2/24/2020

Comedians Lucy Porter and Gina Yashere are old friends with lots in common. Both in their mid-forties, they grew up in London, they're both still gigging and both broadcast regularly, sometimes with an eye on the news - Gina on The Daily Show in the US, Lucy on Radio 4's The Now Show. But most often their observational material is based on what's going on in their own lives. There are major differences too. Lucy lives in London, a working mother, married, runs comedy gigs for mothers with babies, and is often too tired to party. Gina lives in LA with her girlfriend, still has time to party, but is usually too tired because of her endless tours and her new TV sitcom. They’ve lost touch. Now they’re making up for that with a transatlantic conversation down the line. In this long distance reunion, they compare very different lives as they catch up on their local news, daily problems and obsessions, and dispense probably unwanted advice to each other on lifestyle work and cultural détente. Subjects include diet, drive by shootings and personal hygiene. Presenters: Lucy Porter and Gina Yashere Producer: Frank Stirling A 7digital production for BBC Radio 4
