So sad, damn nothing to listen to on radio

Found out today Jon Richardson is no longer going to host his BBC 6music radio show with Fordie. It might not mean much to most people, but it’s been a Sunday ritual for me to listen to their show. It began with Russell Howard, they took over the Russell Brand show. It was brilliant. Russell left to work on his stand up and TV. Jon took over the main role. Now he’s leaving, mind you after he goes to the Melbourne Comedy Festival.

Sad 😦


No wait, Russell Howard also dressed up as a French Maid

Ok, this has made me put my hands over my mouth, laugh and giggle. What fun.

Jon Richardson dressed up as an air hostess

Alright, so I post crap on here all the time. I have previously reported on the forfeits that the Russell Howard and Jon Richardson show have put in place when either loses the news quiz (a regular feature with true and false questions). Well for once Jon lost! So his forfeit was to dress as a woman. Here he is looking beautiful as an air hostess. Personally I think he looks like he’s in a marching band or one of those monkeys with the cymbals.


When my favourite radio show runs into make-up

If you are a regular reader of my blog you will know about my love for the Russell Howard and Jon Richardson show on BBC 6music. Their latest feature is a News Quiz, where Russell (or Jon) asks Jon (or Russell) true or false questions. The loser must complete the forfeit. So far the forfeits have been, the loser must wear a suit (Russell), the loser must bake a cake (Russell – Banoffe pie) and this week’s forfeit the loser must wear make-up (Russell). The video above is Russell as Jon puts it ‘looking like a whore’. Next week, the loser must arrive at the show with a head to toe fake tan (Russell lost again). So far Russ ain’t doin too good! Man I love this show.

Care for a game of Chair Jousting?

I listen to the Russell Howard and Jon Richardson show quite a lot to take my mind off things, and one of their segments is called Bored Games. Which is pretty self-explanatory. They are games that you either invent or play when you are bored. One such game came up that I found hilarious, as they attempted to do it on radio, and being such a visual game you had to rely on the sounds instead (and your imagination).

So what is it? Well, you need office chairs, the ones with wheels. You need to find either two walls, or two corners opposite each other. One opponent to go in one corner, the other opponent in the other, backs facing each other. Then the adjudicator will blow the whistle, and both players are to push off their corners and zoom towards each other and hit the backs of their chairs in the middle. The winner is the one who does not spiral out of control.

I would like to get this up and running at our work, as I believe we have the perfect chairs, but since it is an open plan office it might be slightly difficult (not many walls/corners opposite each other). I think Health & Safety might also have something to say about it.

I do know there is a more hardcore version, which is when you actually get brooms and use them as Joust sticks but not sure if I really want to do this one … a bit too much in the flavour of Jackass.
