Episode 1: Phil the Pheasant and the Flat Earth Cruisers
Behold, the first episode of And Finally… with Ribs & Dill. Please forgive the editing quality – we’re learning as we go.
So what exactly is And Finally…? I’m glad you asked. And Finally… is a weekly improvised news show. We trawl the globe (and many news apps) for the funniest news stories and then do our best to make them even funnier. All the stories and characters are exaggerated for comedic effect. Using an original news story as a starting point, each segment of the show is improvised on the spot and recorded in one take, with no editing.
“Improvised” is the key word here – we haven’t written scripts (even though Ribs really, really wanted to), we’ve just made stuff up on the spot. Some of the things we made up are pretty funny, others not so much. That’s the nature of improv. We hope you enjoy it and come back to listen again next week (or listen live on February 2nd 18:00-20:00).
In this episode we improvise around the following news stories:

One last point: Dill is Neil David Alexander Dillon, in case that’s not obvious. Ribs is Ribs Norman, which is obvious. We both hate our voices. That is all.
