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!

The ExtraJordanary Show | Episode 11: Luke Coldham & Alice Fillary

Theme: “The Theatre”
Guests: Luke Coldham (Actor, Writer, Producer, Director), Alice Fillary (Actor)

Luke Coldham joins Jordan in studio, with Alice Fillary in tow, to discuss ALL THINGS THEATRE, DARLING! We dive into the mind of one of theatre-land’s most prolific, diligent and eloquent up-and-comers. Luke is a major driving force behind theatre in Thurrock and Essex and his ongoing projects grace the county’s theatres year round. Also, he does loads of impressions n’that.

The ExtraJordanary Show | Episodes “8.5”, 9 & 10

Bang in the middle of her busiest season, Jordan has finally gotten around to uploading the last 3 episodes of her flagship show. Listening figures would suggest that, despite the slew of *celebrity* guests, you’d rather hear from Jordan’s closest friends and immediate family. The funniest, most adorable and easily the shoddiest episodes so far!


Episode 8.5: Edd Coates (singer, songwriter – former keyboardist of “The Corridors”)

(with commentary by Dalton Gray)



Episode 9: Dalton Gray (author, Viking, Jordan’s Brother)



Episode 10: Jordan’s Fiance Heli (driver, lover, Czech person)

The ExtraJordanary Show | Episode 5: Fathers Day Special

Episode Theme: Friends & Family
Guests: Ren Stedman (recording artist), Jordan’s Dad (Simon), Jordan’s Brother (Dalton), Jordan’s Sister (Cody)

TEJS ep5


Easily the most LOL episode thus far! No contest.

Who would win out of every living Milky Bar Kid and a single shark, in an Olympic size swimming pool? Dalton knows. Which cake would you pair with a Rum and Lilt? Cody’ll let you know. Best TV show ever? ‘Black In The Attic’, as it goes. I adore my extraordinary family and this episode should demonstrate why. Happy Fathers Day! Don’t kill any zombie kids! Unless you’re Dalton, then 9 will suffice.

Ren Stedman top and tails the show with his incredible music LIVE in the studio. Twitter @renstedmanmusic
