They’re known for his or her warts-and-all podcasts concerning the horrors of parenting â€” still the Scummy Mummies allege their â€œultimate dream is to have our own TV show & perform in Las Vegasâ€�.
Ellie Gibson, 39, & Helen Thorn, 38, met at an amateur stand-up event and began their podcast 4 years of time of time ago. Ms Gibson stated: â€œNo one else was speaking concerning the experience of getting to wash up a sick in the midst of Sainsburyâ€™s with a tissue, or seeing a swimming pool evacuated 'cause your kid did a poo in it.â€�
The pair, who both live in Forest Hill, have written an eponymous ebook & tour the country with their live comedy act. Nevertheless, Ms Gibson stated: â€œWe want to have our own tv show. Thereâ€™s a real gap out there there nonetheless. There isnâ€™t one thing on TV thatâ€™s fun fun about parenting, which is bizarre as there are ones on gardening, baking, football & even badminton.
â€œSo many people in this country are parents & want to laugh at different parents & themselves. Even non-parents would really like it. We have now lots of non-parent listeners to the podcast they usually get in touch to allege it put them off turning in to parents. Or it just makes them really feel ready. Both method itâ€™s an superior thing.â€�
Ms Thorn stated: â€œParenting is a type of things where people allege: â€˜Why didnâ€™t anyone tell me itâ€™s so hard? I feel now’s the right time for us to have a TV show 'cause there’s an awakening about parenting & the way it really is. There have been shows before on parenting, still they’re all directive like Supernanny. However we’re right here to share our experiences & have comical â€” & typically thatâ€™s virtually as useful as having a professional individual telling you tips on how to do The- Naughty Step. You donâ€™t all the time want that, you only want somebody to allege, â€˜I do know, Iâ€™ve been there & itâ€™s going to be all right.â€™â€�
The pair today let go a video in partnership with Kleenex about getting kids able to return to high school after the summer time.
Ms Thorn stated: â€œOur generation are more relaxed & open about the truth in that their children get snotty, get colds, get nits.
â€œWe made this video 'cause throughout the school holidays you kind of throw routines out of the window, your kids eat 50 per cent ice cream, you donâ€™t wash fairly frequently & going back to high school ends all that. Youâ€™re additionally realising they’re getting older so it may be poignant.â€�
