094 - SUSAN FEAT. SIMON FEILDER & TOM WEBSTER

Wicked cool stand-up, actor and ridiculously talented napalm Catherine wheel of comedy Simon Feilder steps into the studio with returning guest Tom Webster (from The RH Experience), his bottomless pit of awesome characters and his innate ability to find the emotional heart of every scene. Alex Sievewright is also there. Obviously, the whole shebang is hosted by this wicked cool dude called Talal Karkouti. Today's show is sponsored by Sleep.

And remember: Whether you're a waffle, donut, the Bakerloo Line, one of Adam Buxton's jingles, a horribly polluted river, your mum, your dad pretending to be your mum, an angsty teenager, Batman or a woman who think's she's called Susan, we're all just pancakes, man. Oh. And we have a new segment. It's brilliant. For now... Enjoy xx

The cast and creators of the Numskull Island podcast join us for a rollicking good time this week as we improvise the most British of blueses, visit a Syrian prison in Daddy Issues, watch a wonderfully lovely double date turn in to a bloodbath and recreate The King's Speech in the most disrespectful manner.

086 - ANTS FEAT. LOOSE BRIE

We welcome back guests Loose Brie Who sadly have given up comedy. We learn about their new vocation Which causes Talal much frustration. Is this a tangerine in Alex's hand? Is that really a microphone stand? Are monkeys ants and antlers cushions? Are the boundaries of reality really worth pushin? Will an outsider, Maddy, help this make sense? Is he possibly just as dense? Finally Talal yells desperately "Will you marry me, Brian Conley?"

085 - FALAFEL RAIN FEAT. WHOSE OIL IS IT ANYWAY?

A Syrian, a Moroccan, a Tunisian and a Turk walk into a radio station... ...and they discuss Arab greetings, ISIS, Israel, ignorance, Donald Trump, racism, stereotypes, inter-faith harmony, Astrology, Jedi, Vampirism and Disney. Improv scenes are scattered throughout and they also have a gloriously painful rap battle (skip to 25min30 to save yourself the stress, but I'm NOT CUTTING IT OUT!). The music of GoRemy is enjoyed and we finally get to the bottom of how many burkas it takes for a 1-foot-tall dwarf to pass as regular sized. Please enjoy this hilariously insightful episode of London Improv Live. In no way is it offensive. If you find yourself offended by this episode, you're wrong. Please locate your nearest tissue and wipe away those tears. Because you're wrong.

Whose Oil is it Anyway? are Fatiha El-Ghorri, Marouen Mraihi, Utku Guder and Talal Karkouti.

Thanks to Mustapha Karkouti for allowing us to interview him for "Daddy Issues".

082 - THE LIL SHOW'S XMAS GOOSE-UP! FEAT. SUKI WEBSTER & LUKE SORBA

Hark! What is this? A Christmas party at K2K Studios? Gather close, little ones, and gaze in wonder as nobody shows up except for Talal Karkouti and his co-host Alex Sievewright. For what does such a miserable sight exist at this time of year? And pray, why do they argue so? This neg-ativity cannot continue for it threatens the very merriment of this festive season! And lo, a spirit descended upon the miserable place and taught us all a very important lesson. And then another. And another. Could this be the end of Christmas joy? Will the laughter of children and the crumpling of gift wrapping become nothing but a distant whisper of a memory? Will anyone get their invite to the party in time to save these poor souls? Whatever happens, we definitely know that this episode features at least six of the following amazing people: Suki Webster, Luke Sorba, Leonardo Dicaprio, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Will Smith, Kristen Wiig and, um, Zsa Zsa Gabor. Have the most massively, marvelously merry Christmas season from Alex, Luc and Talal. Seriously, we love you guys for giving us a reason to make this show. Thanks for listening. See you in 2017 with... A DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS EPISODE!!

081 - THE WEEKLY BLISS FEAT. DAMIAN CLARK, ESTHER MANITO & MO SAFFAF

Welcome to The Weekly Bliss! It's been a pretty rough year so far, and the week of the US Election was no exception. Recorded the Friday after Trump's victory, this episode denies all of the year's tragedies and lives in ignorant Bliss. Well, not all of them... Escape with us as we discuss the Draconian rules of Disney, the meaning of different Arabic names, Chinese, wife-replacing sex dolls and, of course, blasphemy. This episode features a line-up of guests all from the world of stand-up: Damian Clark, Esther Manito and Mo Saffaf. All hilarious, mostly Arab, not improvisers. To accommodate, this is a one-off, improv-free episode! No improv! I know!! We also call up Talal's dad to talk about his upbringing in Syria, school bullies, Aleppo.

080 - JUST POOH IT FEAT. LOOSE BRIE

Yeah, I know that title isn't going to attract any new listeners. But honestly, there were very few other options. Things started with shit and ended with shit this week but I promise you, it's not as bad as it sounds. In fact, it's much better than it sounds. But then again, if your title is shit then I guess you can only go up from there... Get it? Oh well. So, anyway, Loose Brie are back for the turd time. Sorry. Turd time. Oh man, I did it again. Goodness me. I can't stop thinking of pooh. It has become my everything. What have you done to me Loose Brie?? You've broken my mind! Graaaargh! Sorry about that. I don't remember what happened but apparently I was found sleeping in a barn in the Sussex Downs 3 weeks after I began writing this episode description. I was caked in all of the different farm animal's poohs. I was terrorising the locals by running around the village screaming "ME SEES SPECIES FEACES!" After 3 months in a psychiatric hospital I have managed to stop seeing poop everywhere and I think I have finally mustered the courage to finishing uploading this episode. I recommend you stay away. This episode has scarred my mind in ways that can never heal and I truly hope, if you choose to listen, that you have a mind of steel. Godspeed and good luck... Anyway, this episode features Loose Brie who are back for the turd time. See what I did there? Haha. Turd time...

It's a great show. Check it out! Things get caraazy! PEACE! xx ps.

It's not actually all about poop. calm down xx

079 - LET'S GET NUTS FEAT. NERD SALAD

You wanna get nuts? How about nerdy? First timers Nerd Salad swing by the studio to discuss Playstation VR (and why we haven't been given one yet), a therapist sandwich maker, storage vampires, how music changes through the ages, STIs and what would happen if Lara Croft, Super Mario, M Bison and a paralysed Batman went on a double date.

078 - MURDER AVENUE FEAT. THE CAST OF DEAD DRUNK DETECTIVE

In a modest studio somewhere in the suburbs of London, murder. It began as an everyday episode of The LIL Show, where the host was berating an invited guest. But suddenly, with the flick of a switch and the squeal of an improviser, things got all murdery. Luckily, Detective Malcolm Roughtouch occupies the office next door and our host Talal is taken on a journey full of twist and turns, and that's just Porky Pig's tail! WHO killed Mark Tindle??! WHY won't he help Talal get laid??! HOW long has The LIL Show had an intern??! WHAT is the normal amount of these questions??! IS this enough??! YES!! And then we did some improv.

This week's guests were the cast of the relentlessly funny all new podcast Dead Drunk Detective. Check that out on Soundcloud and all those podcast appy things.

Cast: Edmund Fargher, Kate Oswald & Mark Tindle.

077 - PENELOPE JAGUAR-PUSS FEAT. CLUSTERFOX

Join us once more for a frolic through the joint imagination of London's improvisers. This week the immensely funny Clusterfox join us in the studio to perform a blues about missing the things we once had, tell the untold tale of what happened during the Greek God's imprisonment inside their father Cronus' stomach before being freed by Zeus, then perform an unseen, pun-filled Bond movie with the most... buscuit-ey villain. Finally, of course, they re-enact a chapter from host Talal's father's life. The chapter where he happens to be a Syrian mafia boss.

Please enjoy this episode. It was truly a blast to make. xx
