Rig Biz podcast's Archie Curzon on why Rig Aid should score the 2020 Christmas Number 1
Christmas is a time to spend with those you love (be it willingly or enforced), but for Archie Curzon - the self-proclaimed "Chief Chat Officer" and CEO of London's Clapham - it's also a time for banter.
Archie hosts The Rig Biz podcast, a comedy show packed with celebrity guests and with lashings of #ladchat. The character is a parody of the privileged social media influencer - a serial businessman, bon vivant, and rugby fan born in mockumentary short Don't Drop The Egg. As well as the podcast, Archie lives on through Instagram, where he updates fans on his weekly Rig Biz run (where he runs five miles while listening to a business podcast).
In the latest series of the podcast, he has set to out to score this year's Christmas Number 1 with his original track titled It's Christmas Time (It's Time To Lash).
Archie has roped in an impressive lineup of his celebrity pals - including Danny Care, James Haskell, Jeremy Irvine, Alex Paine and Darren Gough - on the song, which serves as a lighthearted wave off a disastrous 2020 while raising money for charity Restart Rugby. The track is released on December 18 and is available to pre-order now.
Below, Archie gives us all the C.H.A.T on how the song came together, sizes up his potential Christmas Number 1 rivals (watch out Liam Gallagher) and hopes of adding a festive chart-topper to his CV and Linkedin profile:
