Lucy And Gina's Special Relationship
Friends Gina Yashere and Lucy Porter have a long-distance talk across the Atlantic

Comedians Lucy Porter and Gina Yashere are old friends with lots in common. Both in their mid-40s, both grew up in London, they're both still gigging and both broadcast regularly, sometimes with an eye on the news.
There are major differences too. Lucy lives in London, a working mother, married, runs comedy gigs for mothers with babies, and is often too tired to party. Gina lives in LA with her girlfriend, still has time to party, but is usually too tired because of her endless tours and her new TV sitcom.
They've lost touch.
Now they're making up for that with a transatlantic conversation down the line. In this long-distance reunion, they compare very different lives as they catch up on their local news, daily problems and obsessions, and dispense probably unwanted advice to each other on lifestyle, work and cultural détente. Subjects include diet, drive by shootings and personal hygiene.
