Owing to another busy summer, you’ll forgive The ExtraJordanary Show for this bulk upload. Episodes 39 to 44 feature some of the most memorable banter in the show’s young history as well as top natter with comedians Sallyann Fellowes, Paul Ennis and Roddy Shaw as well as a visit for The Little Theatre Company.
Episode 39: Names
Is this the greatest episode of the show so far? Probably not. But it was certainly the most inflammatory. Cracking like a mini-egg under the pressures of “East-pril Fool’s Day”, Jordan goes in hard on Transgender stripper names, Islamophobic introductions, killing with kindness, comic book movies, Ricky Gervais’ “Humanity”, Greater Anglia rail service and who is “Lola”???
Episode 40: Sallyann Fellowes & Paul Ennis
After a few weeks of solo broadcasting, Jordan welcomes fellow comics Sallyann Fellowes and Paul Ennis to the Phoenix FM studio for a right ruddy natter. The trio dissect the virtues, merits and limitations of “edgy comedy”. Sallyann questions the nature of the “roadside shoe” and Liam Gallagher’s “peanut head”. Paul confesses to a “Birthday bump” assault.
Why are folk singers so hairy?
Which football team does God support?
Is Paul’s cat haunting his family?
Who the f*ck is Kasabian?

Episode 41: Roddy Shaw
Standing in for the scheduled guest (may his ankle rest in peace) comedian and conservationist Roddy Shaw lights up the Phoenix FM studio with tales of zombie gap years, and the majestic narwhal (all the majesty of a unicorn and a dolphin). Jordan and Roddy bond over the equally majestic Vaporean (look it up) as well as a shared enthusiasm for the Animorphs children’s book and a powerful disdain for the Toffee dating app.
“I think I can comfortably say, if I fell over, I could kill… SEVERAL mice.”

Episode 42: Black Squirrels, 4/20 Festival, Buying Jeans
Jordan hosts 2 hours of primo radio in mind-melting heat, riffing on the audacity of the black squirrel, the unparalleled beauty of black women, the danger of chemical-based sunscreen and the size of Japanese animals.
Episode 43: The Full Monty (+ The Little Theatre Company)
Episode 43 opens with a visit from The Little Company pedalling “The Full Monty” musical @ The Place Theatre, Westcliff 16-19th May – DETAILS BELOW). Chris and Julian, both bollock naked, regale tales of backstage banter and last minute gym workouts.
Jordan runs out the remaining 1hr 54min with storing of tongue biting, palm oil, knocking out pigeons and Morrisey being a twat. Regular listener Allysa Pentolfe gives creative-birth to the new feature “Funny But True” and Jordan improvises musical links like a motha-flippa!
The Full Monty – The Musical is showing May 16th to May 19th @ The Palace Theatre in Westcliff, Essex
