Ben and Simon’s Hackney Hoopla

Hackney Hoopla presents the best in new music and comedy with a Hackney twist. Presenters Ben Shires and Simon Cooper chat local comedy with local comedians while playing a ‘select’ selection of ruddy good new music.

Broadcasts from Ben and Simon’s Hackney Hoopla:

Ben and Simon’s Hackney Hoopla, Vol. 4

Hackney Hoopla: the best in new comedy with a Hackney twist

The fourth instalment of Hackney Hoopla puts the bump into bumper when Ben and Simon start chatting to what they think is a tramp in the cafe before quickly realising it’s comedian Doctor Brown (who, coincidentally used to present a show on London Fie;ds Radio back in’t day, The Manopause). And by happy coincidence, it’s time for the D in the boy’s A-Z of Comedy. Dawn French has to sit this one out.

Vol. 4 also features a discussion on Cockney cuisine (mainly Jellied Eels and “lesbian” restaurants) with Simon’s Nan, Ben’s new action hero phone and a implausible live phone and text-in. There’s also some smashing music.

Ben and Simon’s Hackney Hoopla, Vol. 3

The best in new music and comedy with a Hackney twist.

Vol. 3 sees Ben and Simon discussing the merits of finding Vanity Fair on the train whilst abusing an entire nation before Ben tries to guess who the topic of this week’s A-Z of comedy is with 10 questions. You’d think it would be easy. Elsewhere, Simon tries to find out what the word ‘Gertcha’ means with help from his ‘Big’ Nan and Chas ‘n’ Dave.

Ben and Simon’s Hackney Hoopla, Vol. 2

The best in new music and comedy with a Hackney twist.

Ben Shires and Simon Cooper chat local comedy with local comedians whilst playing a select selection of ruddy good new music. They also embark on an epic mission called the A-Z of comedy which should at least mean they stay on air for 26 shows. Nobody likes an incomplete alphabetical list do they?

A-Z of Comedy: Billy Connolly

Ben plumbs new depths in taste, Simon does an impression of a camp police siren and they both assess the comedy of Billy Connolly in the A-Z of comedy. Hackney Comedian, Tom Webb also pops up to avoid doing the gardening and to plug his Edinburgh show.

Ben and Simon’s Hackney Hoopla, Vol. 1

Ben and Simon’s Hackney Hoopla presents the best in new music and comedy with a Hackney twist.

Ben Shires and Simon Cooper chat local comedy with local comedians while playing a ‘select’ selection of ruddy good new music. They also embark on an epic mission called the A-Z of comedy, which should at least mean they stay on air for 26 shows. Nobody likes an incomplete alphabetical list, do they?

This week Ben and Simon introduce each other to their listeners with some particularly vicious character assessments. They are also joined by local comedian Tom Webb and Alan Partridge neatly (well, sort of) kicks off the A-Z of comedy, while Two Wounded Birds are the new band of the month.
