Episode 2

In this episode, Graham welcomed Jennifer Saunders (“Absolutely Fabulous”) and pop legend Cyndi Lauper. Saunders talks about how she met her longtime comedy partner, Dawn French. She jokes, “We met in a little whorehouse. Then we got taken up by the Chinese gang masters and were brought over here and sold to Paul Raymond. I’ve told that story a million times!” Cyndi Lauper talked about the old days. “I wanted to be a singer, but people kept saying, ‘Somebody’s gotta clean the fish. What if you fail?’ So I said, OK, I won’t be a singer, I’ll be a painter. And my art teacher kept telling me about Thoreau, and I went into the woods to do a tree study and find out about myself. Unfortunately it was black fly season so I was bit up pretty bad.”
