118 - PICKLE SNATCH FEAT. JENNY DONOGHUE & RILEY MADINCIA

On today’s show we celebrate the release of a painfully funny new web-series, “8:58”. The show focuses on the 2 minutes before work, when the staff are in the coffee room and the weird places that conversations can reach. Each episode features two World-class improvisers and no script!

The show’s creator, Riley Madincea, and one of it’s stars, Jenny Donoghue join Talal Karkouti for a game of Pickle Snatch, a ten-pound Asda meal deal, a heavy-weight bout of debating and some supernatural improv therapy.

We also play in a ball-pool.

Enjoy xx

116 - CUT THEM OFF FEAT. AMBA MC & OTHER PEOPLE'S CHILDREN

After a rare pre-show preamble, today's episode swiftly undoes all the hard work we did last time to cure racism. Better strap yourselves in...

Lance Fuller and Riley Madincea (one half of Other People's Children) are back. So is my brother, Ahmad Karkouti (a.k.a. real hip-hop guy, AMBA MC), who we manage to take hostage in the studio after he was done hosting his K2K Radio programme, The Missin' Links Show.

We visit a museum of racism, make the coolest citizens arrests, wage Korean war on a potato and learn how Miley Cyrus will destroy the American Dream.

Oh, and we castrate Riley live on air...

112 - 3RD BIRTHDAY BUSK-UP FEAT. PANICKY TACK

On The LIL Show's 3rd birthday, Talal Karkouti found himself wandering the streets of London contemplating what the future holds. That's when he came across a lowly busker on the streets singing for his money. Upon looking closer, Talal was overcome with emotion to find that it was none other that his long-lost comedy partner, Panicky Tack band-mate and co-host, Luc Valvona.

Listen in as the boys reunite, catch-up and entertain passers-by with some beautiful, improvised songs and rambling, nonsensical chatter.

Stick around to the end for a bonus track!

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?

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
