RHLSTP #197: Rick Edwards - Bailey's Comets. Rich is back on the telly, even if at this point, House Of Games is looking like it might be another House of Horrors, but if he plays his cards right he might be able to get on another quiz show, because his guest is the host of !mpossible, it's Rick Edwards. Find out how Ruby Wax helped steer his career; what it's like to get married in Kew Gardens; how Rick upset Jake Gyllenhaal; and if it's true that he has no sense of smell. Richard attempts to pull down the concept of Alternate Universes, but fails (if only we'd been in the Universe where he succeeded in making his point) and the pair discuss whether being incredibly handsome has damaged their careers. Plus Backgammon, Rick & Morty and some pretty successful attempts by Richard to remember pop culture things that no one else recalls.
