You know Jeff Cohen as the 10 year old kid who played Chunk in Steven Speilberg’s 1985 blockbuster film The Goonies. It was a scene-stealing performance that should have sent him on the path to mega stardom. Instead Chunk became a hunk. He lost the weight, his voice started to change and the work dried up. “Puberty is the ultimate nemesis for a child actor – and puberty kicked me in the gut,” he says. “It felt like: ‘What am I going to do now? I’m going to be a has-been at 14 years old?’”

But Goonies never say die and in true Goonies style, Jeff still conquered Hollywood… but on the other side of the camera. He attended law school, worked hard and is now a leading entertainment lawyer representing the biggest names in film and TV at his own Beverly Hills based law firm, Cohen Gardner LLP.

He’s also a distinguished lecturer and active writer. His recent book – ‘The Dealmaker’s Ten Commandments’ provides a practical, no-nonsense methodology for negotiating deals, managing your time and handling crisis, all at the highest level.

Although developed in Hollywood, the real world tactics, strategies and guiding principles are vital for any business environment.

So what was it really like on the set of the Goonies? Does he still see the rest of the gang? What’s all this about Chunk for President? How do you conquer Hollywood? Grab a Baby Ruth and listen to Jeff spill his guts and tell Caroline and Claire EVERYTHING....

She shot to fame playing Dawn Tinsley, the receptionist in the British version of ‘The Office’. But after switching Slough for the States, Lucy Davis is now rubbing shoulders with superstars AND superheroes in Hollywood. You’ll have seen her in a host of films and TV shows but perhaps the most exciting to date is this year’s blockbuster in which she stars along side Gal Gadot in Wonder Woman playing Wonder Woman’s best friend Etta Candy.

Having grown up amongst show biz gods - her father being British comedy mega star Jasper Carrott, Lucy is no stranger to fame. But life hasn’t been all plain sailing for our guest. She was diagnosed with kidney failure which resulted in her own mother donating her a kidney and she’s had a very public battle with anorexia and bulimia.  

In this show, Lucy chats to Caroline Feraday and Claire Bullivant about finally being 'at peace' with her body, gaining great comfort from the practice of Reconnective Healing and how her Grandmother is keeping an eye on her from the other side. She’s mega talented, really funny, spiritual, kind, inspirational and a survivor – oh and our new best friend (we’re hoping) – don’t miss this most candid and fun episode with the wonderful Lucy Davis…

Our guest today is a pap - in fact he’s one of the most qualified and highest paid shooters in the business. He’s not only captured the world’s most famous stars in some of their most infamous moments - but his family also owns one of the biggest agencies (WENN) which sell the pics on to magazines and news networks across the world. No-one knows the paparazzi business OR the stars themselves like Owen Beiny.

He’ll hand out $10,000 every morning to LA’s maître d’s and parking valets for celeb sighting tips. Then thanks to his omnipresent cameras and beating LA traffic by travelling in the ‘pap lane’ (the other side of the road), Owen and his team are on the scene to capture celebs on camera - documenting their triumphs and tragedies, their breakups and meltdowns, and just about everything in between.

In this show, Owen chats to Caroline Feraday and Claire Bullivant about being thrown in jail after chasing Britney Spears, making Jennifer Anniston a promise, defending some of his more controversial shots and helping Madonna keep certain pics out of the public domain.

Don’t miss this fascinating interview with the Paparazzo maestro Owen Beiny and find out what it’s like being on the other side of the lens….

Funny man Jay Davis is a comedy promoter / producer second to none who hosts the hottest comedy shows in LA. His legendary nights always attract the biggest names in comedy such as Jim Jefferies, Dane Cook, Dave Chappelle, Adam Devine, Chris D’elia, Bill Burr, Lisa Lampanelli and Jamie Kennedy to name but a few – and often in front of star studded Hollywood audiences.

A successful comic and actor in his own right, Jay has appeared on a host of TV favourites such as Boston Legal, Jimmy Kimmel Live and Comedy Central’s Tosh.O. But it was starring with Dane Cook in ‘Tourgasm’ a 30-day cross-country-tour-turned-reality-show on HBO which garnered him nationwide attention and led to performing to packed out stadiums across the country.

In this show, Jay chats to Caroline Feraday and Claire Bullivant about once having Jackass’ Johnny Knoxville as a roommate, giving Dane Cook his first 7 minutes on stage, finding the funny when you’re shackled to a bed and the secret tunnels under Sunset Boulevard. Don’t miss this fun and informative episode with the very funny and tenacious comedy king of LA – the vivacious Jay Davis...
