Join Jewish Comedians Rachel Creeger and Philip Simon for Episode 1 of their comedy podcast, a chat show about all things Jewish
Well, after talking about it for the past few months, we’re delighted to bring you our first full length episode, hosted by award winning comedians Rachel Creeger and Philip Simon, and produced by Russell Balkind. This week’s guests are comedy writer Ivor Baddiel and actress Debbie Chazen.
Ivor Baddiel: @IvorBaddiel
Ivor writes extensively for television and includes amongst the glittering array of celebrities who have employed him the likes of Stephen Fry, Graham Norton, Joan Rivers, Dermot O’ Leary, James Nesbitt, Claudia Winkleman, Bruce Forsyth, Ant and Dec, Julian Clary, Ricky Tomlinson, Johnny Vaughn, Dara O’Briain and Danny Wallace. (He could go on, but feels the point is made, whatever that point might be).
He is the author of 14 books ranging from those for the youngest reader (Cock-A-Doodle-Quack-Quack, published by David Fickling Books) to those for the slightly older reader (Ultimate Football published by Dorling Kindersley, Mystical Magic published by Scholastic) to those for the more mature reader (Not The Highway Code published by Wiedenfeld and Nicolson, Bottle published by Mainstream).
