Sod your Mr. Frosties, bust out your Buzz Lightyears and join us for a darkly comic meander through the Emerald City of the mind.

The ExtraJordanary Show | Episode 21: The Spirit of Autumn!

autumn spirit

2 hours of textbook radio, *totally winged* on the premise that “the leaves are currently changing colour”.

Jordan extols the magic and majesty of the Autumnal season as only she knows how: high off her little titties on off-brand energy drink and with the help of her listeners, including and especially #1 Jordanite: Allysa Pentolfe.

Catch Jordan as “Fairy Hanny” in “The Only Way Is Dick, this Janurary @ The Towngate Theatre, Basildon.

The ExtraJordanary Show | Episode 20: Carl Denham

Theme: “Impulsivity” (Impulsiveness)
Guest: Carl Denham – comedian, promoter, fantasy cartographer, bear (not a sexual delineation)

Carl; A Bear.

In what has been billed as the *bleepiest* episode so far, Jordan interviews the notorious “poultry pugilist” that is Carl Denham. The pair discuss Carl’s comic approach, his international affair with hip-hop and his time spent not-actually-hibernating as a massive woodland mammal.

Home truths coming spilling from every orifice in this enlightening and enlivening edition of The ExtraJordanary Show!

The ExtraJordanary Show | Episode 19.5: Jordan (on her tod)

Theme: The History Of Hallowe’en (Samhain)
Guest: …

In a distinct change of pace, Jordan flies solo for an entire episode. Undistracted by another human, Jordan riffs on sexy vampires, oral hygiene the poison of Christian theology… all while remembering to do the weather, traffic and adverts (as she describes) “like a proper radio person”. All in all, a textbook episode that’s well worth an ear-gander. Big love to #1 Jordanite Allysa Pentolfe and everybody listening live throughout.

The ExtraJordanary Show | Episode 19: Tom Mayhew

Theme: Pain
Guest: Tom Mayhew (Comedian, not just a sad man)

Joining Jordan for a hilarious pre-record, comedian Tom Mayhew talks about his lifelong love affair with comedy, Pokémon and The Simpsons. The odd couple discuss Tom’s Edinburgh special “Fragile Fragments”, incl. it’s upcoming commitment to DVD – the filming of which Jordan herself would be guesting at a few hours after this episode went out. The pair also improvise a number of fake adverts to appease imaginary sponsors.

Pictured is Tom holding an award that Jordan won the following morning, while Jordan sips Victorian Lemonade from it’s shiny goblet.

The ExtraJordanary Show | Episode 14: Andrew B. Forsyth

Episode Theme: Fulfilment
Guest: Andrew B. Forsyth

True blue rock n’n roll radio. THIS is what The ExtraJordanary Show should have been from Episode 1. Mildly scandalous but ultimately from the heart (and cervix). Aussie comic Andrew Forsyth (Andrea Foreskin) brings his own brand of low-aspirational comedy to the Phoenix FM studio as the two discuss Food, Faith and what happens when you fancy someone… doesn’t sound as funny written down but TRUST us… it’s a belter.

The ExtraJordanary Show | Episode 13: Daniel John

About the show

Episode Theme: Lineage (… Essex)
Guest: Daniel John (Comedian, Podcaster, Dudeist Priest, former child star)

Episode 13 represents a true return to form after a haphazard August. Daniel and Jordan wax lyrical about the deep theory of comedy, extol the virtues of an estuary upbringing and round off the show with a heartfelt pledge to end world hunger. Truly a standout episode and a pleasure to have Daniel John in the Phoenix FM chair. Big up to Kyle Wallace and the G&B Comedy gang!

The ExtraJordanary Show | Episode 12: Edinburgh Fringe Special

Theme: Fringe!
Guests: Spring Day (Comedian), Tom Mayhew (Comedian), Elliot Simpson (Comedian), Rob Saunders (Comedian)

Cooped up in the studio, pre-recording an otherwise guestless show, Jordan phones 4 of her favourite touring comedians, all of whom are currently showing at Edinburgh Fringe. We here from the incorrigible Spring Day, the undernourished Tom Mayhew, the staggeringly asexual Elliot Simpson and *Panic Award Comedian Of The Year* x5 Rob Saunders.

… after that, things go off the rails because Jordan gets a bit tired and weird. Vive la Fringe!
