Comedian Alan Francis dropped by he's appearing at The Kings Head Crouch End and then before you could say 'oh look here's another comedian' Hattie Hayridge' came along plugging her gig at The Hackney Empire.

Bonnie Langford for Sandi, today Bonnie revealed she once tap danced with Gene Kelly and loves fishy bites but not cockroaches, at least not on the same plate. Bonnie's guest was Ayesha Hazarica, who is staging a special event for International Women's Day. Comedian Ed Byrne was in moaning about having to sing the Lord's prayer with Cliff Richard, he also made a rude joke about a banana that Bonnie was eating. Finally Bonnie rounded off the show with a couple of cast members from 'Ying Tong' the new play about the Goons.
Oh and Bonnie also asked you about your fantasy comedy line-up, there were suggestions ranging from Bill Hicks to Old Man Steptoe and Molly Sugden to Bob Hope. Don't forget you can always EMail the show or call on 0870 90 90 973.
