111 - DROOP SACKS FEAT. JAMES LE LACHEUR, RILEY MADINCEA & ROBIN MILTON

Not what it sounds like! Did you know that almonds are not nuts, but droop sacks? Well now you do!

Learn more great facts like that here on today's London Improv Live, because you're certainly not gonna learn anything good in a Jr Dictionary...

Find out why on today's The LIL Show!

Starring:

Hot off of the cast of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (has that tag gotten us more clicks yet?) comes James Le Lacheur - who seems to REALLY love acorns!

Find them performing as part of Multiverse, Notflix or in Nursery Original's Heads Might Roll. @JamesLeLacheur

From the beloved Other People's Children (well, goodbye new listeners) returns Riley Madincea - who I have booked counseling for. Stop sending me letters!!

He performs with Other People's Children monthly at the Lion and Unicorn Theatre. @OtherChilds

And still denying that he's in an improv group with me, it's Robin Milton! He can skim a pebble like a man possessed, by several Gods!

His new stand-up night is the Bee's knees, the Dog's bollocks and both the Bee's and the Dog's new favourite stand-up night! It's called 4&20 Presents, and it's at the Blackbird Bakery. Go! @Milky_Twiglet

110 - PARTIAL ENGLISH FEAT. NORTH COAST

From New York, New York comes the hip-hop improv troupe with more rhymes that a Dr. Seuss compendium - North Coast!

They join Talal for a very special, rap-ilicious episode of The LIL Show.

Expect a rap-battle throw down that'll make 8-Mile look like 2-Mile, Coronation Chicken bras, dental graffiti (graffiteeth?), the secret to happiness and a cacophony of revelatory raps in a fishing shack somewhere North of Minnesota.

Enjoy xx

108 - TATTOO-PROV! FEAT. NICOLA CROSS, CHRISTIAAN HENDRIKSEN, OTHER PEOPLE'S CHILDREN & SAMUEL MEAD

You've heard of Two-Prov, you've even heard of Dr. Who-prov. Well get ready because we've just invented the next new craze: Tattoo-prov!

Host Talal gets inked live on air whilst trying to host a show and improvise scenes. Luckily, he has the support of some fantastic improvisers to help him through the agony.

We find out how the sins of animals can have serious consequences for humans, how a cigarette can get Syrian teens laid and what happens when you mix love with golf.

However, we don't get to any of this before the wonderfully talented artist Samuel Mead begins tattooing a cat onto Talal's ribs. And we don't stop until the cat-tat is done.

100 - DETROIT ROCK LOBSTER FEAT. DAME JUDY DENCH?

EPISODE 100! We celebrate with the most famous guest we've ever had, the most diverse guest team and the funniest scenes. Well, we would have if Alex Sievewright had done his job properly... Stick around for the SHOCKING twist at the end of the show. Could this be the final ever episode of London Improv Live? Enjoy xx thelilshow.com k2kradio.com

099 - LINGERIE CHOCOLATE FEAT. SIMON FEILDER & TOM WEBSTER

Well, well, well. What DIDN'T happen this episode??

We didn't NOT talk about Simon Feilder's appearance in the classic sit-com Friends, neither did we not talk about Tom Webster's appearance on Blue Peter.

We certainly didn't forget to explore what happens in the REAL London Underground, nor did we fail to discuss Amy Winehouse's jazz credentials.

Other things that didn't happen were refraining to have a rap battle in a hot-tub, forgetting to teach you about baby safety, NOT going on a guided tour of Nazi Germany or a lack of seeing how a teenage Talal was a mere haunting away from being a goth.

Confusing enough?

Enjoy! xx

098 - TRUMP: THE GAME FEAT. LOOSE BRIE, KIT OATES & ROB COPLAND

From the dark, dusty depths of eBay comes, Trump: The Game. It's a fierce competition of greed, high-octane bidding wars and deal making that only the toughest business people can survive. However, Phil and Martin from Loose Brie are what we've got. Playing alongside them is their new friend(?) Rob Copland and globe-trotting photographer Kit Oates. The stakes of this friendly game are soon raised to a point where Phil and Martin's livelihood and safety are threatened by the results of this game. Who exactly is Rob Copland? Friend? Comedian? Captor? Or terrorist? Most likely is all the above...

Before the game kicks off, you can enjoy some exclusive LIL Show scoops about Tribe Called Quest and the upcoming La Haine sequel. Enjoy! xxx

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
