Work, saying No and time for celeb mums to be honest about the balance - with Kelly Convey

Season 5, Episode 64,   Oct 12, 2022, 05:00 AM

Host Hatty Ashdown  is joined by stand up and mum Kelly Convey ( UniLAD, Comedy Central, BBC Three, Channel 4.) inbetween supporting Alan Carr on his  UK tour) We got stuck  right into an old natter about working with a baby, one in the oven, and the reality of the sacrifices and joys  in comedy and parenthood. Kelly flagged up  the  uncomfortableness for parents in showbiz   to say no to work, but really does time matter ? and while some celebs like to portray that they didn't have to make a choice between work or having a family,  is it time for  honesty from high profile mums about how they achieve their  work/ kid balance ? and lots of snot out laughter as usual , stick on the kettle, unload the dishwasher  its a nice short one !
 you can follow Kelly at and catch her live !
