A comic twist on the battle of the sexes

It’s just over 18 months since Graham Keal first joined the Girls Around Town to share some of the highlights of his own take on those ‘men are from Mars, women are from Venus‘ moments…

A popular speaker at WI meetings, ladies’ luncheon clubs and other gatherings across the country, Graham had just launched his latest talk, 50 Shades of Graham, which he described at the time as a bit more risqué than his others but nothing to frighten the easily shocked.

“I’d already amassed a lot of material on how so much of the humour to be found on the web revolves around the battle of the sexes,” he told listeners back in November 2016. “Now I’ve just adapted that material, adding some musings and observations on what has made both the Fifty Shades books and the film so huge, despite all the critical brickbats flung at them.”

With EL James’s latest novel, The Mister, hitting book shops a few weeks ago – to a flurry of reviews describing it as ‘excruciating’ and ‘fifty shades of awful’ – and Graham’s next appearance coming up in Newark soon, he’s back on the show to report on how those musings have gone down with audiences so far.

And to give June a taste of what’s in store at Carriages Café later this month…

Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon next Sunday when Graham joins June in the studio.

In the meantime, there’s still time to get tickets, priced £10 each including welcome drink, for the talk starting at 7pm for 7.30pm on Friday 24 May – pop into Carriages, call 01636 676129 or head over to Facebook here for more details and bookings.

A very funny look at the current battle of the sexes. Highly recommended – Sally Bowden, WI speaker finder

50 shades of Graham

 

the battle of the sexes

As a showbiz journalist for more than 30 years, he did around 4,000 interviews with countless stars of stage and screen. But this weekend the shoe is on the other foot for Graham Keal, when he’ll be the one answering the questions instead of asking them…

Graham joins the Girls Around Town in the studio to share a few of the highlights from his encounters with a veritable A to Z of celebrities.  Why was Sir David Attenborough making eyes at him? What made Jimmy Tarbuck such a pain? And just why did Oprah touch his elbow?

Now a popular speaker at WI meetings, ladies luncheon clubs and other gatherings across the UK, Graham recently launched his latest talk. Admittedly it’s ‘a bit more risqué’ than his others but 50 Shades of Graham is nothing to frighten the easily shocked, he says.

“I’d already amassed a lot of material on how so much of the humour to be found on the web revolves around the battle of the sexes. Now I’ve just adapted that material, adding some musings and observations on what has made both the Fifty Shades books and the film so huge, despite all the critical brickbats flung at them.”

Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon on Sunday when Graham gives June, Tina and Sue the inside track on some of the ‘men are from Mars, women are from Venus’ moments that kept the ladies of Norwell WI entertained earlier this month…
