Episode 29: Jim the Soldier -ED & FRIENDS (U.S. Election Special)

Ed & Friends takes a different tone this week as Ed talks to his friend and cousin Sgt. James Russell, and while they talk about life in the US Military, the subject inevitably turns to tomorrow’s Presidential election.


Ed asks how a soldier reacts to Presidential candidates that evoke the military in their campaigns, whether they are bending the facts to aid their campaign or disrespecting the families of fallen soldiers. Jim, a man that does not waste his words, gives Ed his views on Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton and the duty of a soldier.

This week on Ed & Friends; lots of lessons and laughter from improv comedy legend and founder of  Hoopla, Steve Roe!

Steve has made a name for himself teaching and performing improvised comedy. In 2006, he and his friends started meeting above a pub in Balham and eventually created Hoopla, which has since become a comedy community with weekly shows, its own festival and a platter of classes and courses that are training and showcasing comedians in the heart of London.

Steve gives Ed a potted history of improv and chats about making things up on the spot, breaking the rules and keeping a healthy disrespect for the art form. He also shares a soon to be award winning story about some Spanish tourists and a bookshop toilet.
