Episode 05: Keith the Hostage Negotiator (feat. Natasha Parrott) – ED & FRIENDS

The lovely Keith is in the podcast studio for Episode 5, where we go in deep on life as a Police Officer and Hostage Negotiator as well as having a giggle with Giggle Loop improviser Natasha Parrott.

IMG_0080 (1)Keith tells us what it takes and what it costs to be a Hostage Negotiator with the Met Police, as well as making us chuckle with tales of roller-discos and going undercover to avoid the wrath of Prince.

We loved having Keith on the podcast. We were hanging on his every word! You can see his improv team, Genre Claude Van Damme and laugh at their particular brand of cinematic comedy by liking them on Facebook or following them on Twitter.

IMG_0013And co-hosting with Ed this week is comedy co-hort and Giggle Loop chum, Natasha Parrott! As well as being an improviser, she is also on those Text Santa posters with Ed, so she is in your face throughout the christmas period leading up to Christmas Jumper Day on December 18th.
