You’ll hear the British point of view (and accent) from London born John Clayton (and no, he never went to Downton Abbey!) and then the American viewpoint (and accent!) of US born Larry Mauro. Whether they are chatting on success, Hollywood and show biz, communication, stress, relaxation, puppetry, travel, or things you probably never thought about, John & Larry’s door IS open just a sliver, so you can eavesdrop with no-one knowing you're there.

We've changed the title of our show but it's still your pals John and Larry. “Britishly Speaking” is probably NOT good English (which raises the question, is there a difference between the words BRITISH & ENGLISH?) but that’s just the point of our sparkly, vibrant new show.
