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.
