RHLSTP #155: Jan Ravens - Just Amazing. Richard is excited after spotting a celebrity at Crewe station, but upset that the celebrity wasn't excited about spotting him. But his guest has snogged that celeb, it's Jan Ravens. There's chat about how to personify a can of drink, blazing a trail for women in comedy, sand yachting, Sunday school teaching, what makes for a creepy entertainer, working with Barry Sheen, how to choose a Mastermind topic, how tape led Richard to a rare TV victory, how Konnie Huq nearly killed both Jan and Richard and what it's like to have a comedian come out of you. Plus plenty of bull semen, but at what cost?
