Episode notes

Nick and Angela welcome comedian Aisling Bea to Dish HQ.

Aisling is an award-winning comedian, actor and writer. She created, wrote and starred in the comedy series This Way Up on Channel 4 with Sharon Horgan. Aisling also starred in the Netflix show Living with Myself alongside Paul Rudd in 2019 and 2020, winning a BAFTA for Breakthrough Talent.

Angela prepares a tasty niçoise salad with Jersey Royals and tuna steak. The meal is paired with a Chapel Down Bacchus and Nick serves a whiskey, ginger and lime, Aisling’s favourite tipple. Hailing from the Emerald Isle, Aisling's love affair with the humble spud lends itself to some hilarious conversation. Our threesome cover comedy and embarrassing headlines, and the Dish team challenges Aisling to an after-dinner game with a difference.

Aisling Bea stars in the new Take That musical movie, Greatest Days, with friend of Dish, Jayde Adams. It’s in cinemas 16 June, 2023.
