The Moon Under Water
Joe Wilkinson - The Sue Pollard (Part 1)
Many of you will know of Kent as "The Garden of England", but what many of you won't know is that many years ago Kent was known by a different nickname: "The Beer Garden of England". This was due to its unusually large number of public benches, upon which each year millions of ramblers would rest their weary legs and treat themselves to a bottle of lager (or a pint of bitter should the necessary facilities be available). Public benches have since been replaced by public houses, and this week's guest knows a thing or two about such south-easterly establishments; it's comedian and actor Joe Wilkinson!
You'll know Joe from his appearances on Live At the Apollo, 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown, After Life, as well as when he competed on The Great British Bake Off. As an accomplished stand-up he's spent many an evening frequenting pubs up and down the country, and we can only imagine that'll play some part in shaping his very own 'Pub of the Mind'.
