Geekanory Part 3: “The Race to Not Sit Next to the Boss at the Work’s Christmas Lunch” - S2Ep9

September 15th, 2019

In this 3rd instalment of our Geekanory extravaganza, Comedy Geek cast regular Marie Edwards reads a short story written by Eleanor Freeman entitled "The Race to Not Sit Next to the Boss at the Work's Christmas Lunch", a tale of one woman's struggle to avoid becoming separated from the "fun crew" at the annual works festivities. Will she get stuck next to the boring accounts department, the smelly cleaner, or worse... the boss? You'll just have to listen and find out!

Eleanor Freeman lives with her husband, daughter and hamster Pootle in Warwickshire and has written many short stories, play and poems. She has just completed her first novel, set in the 14th century during the Black Death, and is also working on another novel set in a 19th century workhouse, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for these. When Eleanor is not writing about death and disease, she likes to lighten things up a little by watching and writing comedy, even taking the plunge and performing standup comedy under the mentorship of Phoenix Nights' Janice Connolly! Eleanor is currently living her dream (well, nearly!), by combining her love of writing with running her own career advisory service, 'Little Yolk'.

We were absolutely thrilled to receive this story from Eleanor and couldn't wait to include it on our show; we hope you enjoy!

This week's narrator, Marie Edwards, is known to many of our listeners as the delightful voice behind our highly peculiar agony aunt "Ask Angela" and we can assure you she will be back for more comedy sketch madness very soon.
