I'd heard a new one was finally coming but now it's all on the BBC website and everything.

Really looking forward to this. The show kept me sane on my daily walks around my flat in lockdown one, when I was living in Spain and not allowed to go outside for anything other than going to the shops or seeing a doctor. I'm ready for a new dollop of petty fighting with Lord.

Really looking forward to this!

Dunno if this is a spoiler or not but

is playing a character in one of them.

EDIT okay it's clearly not a spoiler as it's on the BBC page. Merchant too!

Thanks for the heads up, love this thing, can't wait to hear the new stuff.

Somewhat relevant moan: on the BBC Sounds app all the past episodes of this are now in one big chronological list with no indication of series, so you have to work it out from the broadcast dates. Also they've dropped 'Late Night' from the title. Country's on its arse.

And there's no actual 'poetry', either!

More annoying, i had downloaded the 'Tim Key's Late Night Poetry Programme series 1-4' on Audible. But it doesn't seem complete, with more episodes appearing on BBC Sounds under the title 'Tim Key's Poetry Programme'. I thought i would check what was missing, but Audible list each episode as Chapter 1, Chapter 2 etc, not as episode names, so can't compare them. Unless there was a series 5 before this new episode? 

Edit - just seen there was a series 5, the Audible collection also doesn't have the Xmas special.

Enjoyed the first episode, but the second episode was great.

Love how the heighten things and even the most straight characters get their chance to shine.
 
Great to have it back.

Thoroughly enjoying this. A thought strikes me:

Is Tim deliberately channeling Tony Hancock in this show? Once I noticed it I now can't un-hear it, and it seems especially apparent in the latest series. It could almost be a modern-day Hancock's Half Hour. That's not a criticism by the way - I absolutely love it.

I wonder if he's ever acknowledged the similarity? Has it already been commented upon on by anyone on here?

I think he mentioned Hancock when he was on the Adam Buxton podcast. The Late Night Poetry Programme LP artwork was an homage, or at the very least inspired by, IIRC.

Started listening to these. Is it ever revealed why his name's Lord ?

Yer man is doing a WIP show at The Bill Murray on Saturday afternoon. I've snagged myself a couple of tickets for it.

Dunno if anyone else is interested, but I thought I'd drop a hot mention in the thread anyway.

non capisco

Seen a couple of his WIPs recently. You'll have a good time. There was a punchline to one of the jokes he did at Up The Creek that really got me.

imitationleather

Oh right. Well, if I don't enjoy it I'm getting on the next bus to Penge and fucking you up.

non capisco

That's alright, I evidently have a network of decoys in the area. You'll enjoy it though.

No idea but I quite like that his name was occasionally shortened to just "lor" in this series

lazyhour

I think it's one of Key's things that he has words and phrases that are never quite explained. "Jel" (gel?) is another one which I think just means loser/twat/tragic person. There's also 'jizzhound" and I think a few others that I can't remember right now.

Love him so much.

Edit: he also has nicknames for other friends, like John Kearns is The Colonel. Bit more self-explanatory, that one.

He called him Lord because Tom Basden said he had a lift in his house

He later realised that Basden was joking but the name stuck

Is this a real-life anecdote?

Yes!

Heard it on a random radio interview at some point in my life

Excellent! Glad to finally the know the origin/meaning behind the name.

Next, can you explain "jel"?
