FLP 21 – Liverpool Goes to Ed Fringe 2015 & Liverpool Comedy Festival Special 2015 01

It is Funny Looking Podcast 21 and due to total collapse of organisational skill on Gav’s behalf – Pete isn’t here again…

But we do have some old and new friends.

Once again we are excited to announce that we are the ‘Official’ Podcast of the Liverpool Comedy Festival 2015, beating off the dozens of other Liverpool based podcasts we know.

We will be bringing you previews and chats with artists, legends and heroes from across the whole festival.

But that is not yet…

There is a smal matter of the Edinburgh Comedy Festival to go.

Oh and the fact that Funny Looking Live – GOES LIVE!!

Two gigs at an amazing venue in Liverpool, 81 Renshaw St.

And that is the theme of this podcast, the growing hub of alternative, comedy, arts and performance out of this city centre venue.

Chris Jenkins - Top JoeAlastair Clark & the Legion of Doom Alastair Clarke & Becky Webbgentlemen have both been featured in this podcast before and they are joined by Becky Web & Chris Jenkins as they prepare for Ed Fest, Liverpool Comedy Festival and more.

http://funnylooking.co.uk

Oh boy, not only an Edinburgh best newcomer but also an Edinburgh best thing ever award winner! Now admittedly they are the same person, John Kearns, but this whole episode is taken over by our recent chat.

A fascinating comedian who clearly loves his craft and shapes each show with a huge amount of thought. You’ll hear how John shows Schtick went from rough outing at Machnyllyth comedy fest to an award winner and onto John’s future plans.

If you’ve not seen John yet, it’s a must! Follow him on Twitter for all his latest news at https://twitter.com/johnsfurcoat

Those in the London and Brighton areas, how do you afford the rent!? am I right?! Anyway one perk of the sky high property is that you can see Mr Kearns twice this week. Tickets, info etc here: http://www.ents24.com/uk/tour-dates/john-kearns

Phil Ellis can be heard on Pod 18 here: http://bit.ly/FLP18 and if you want to see Funz and Gamez, you can do so at the Soho Theatre. Tickets here: http://www.sohotheatre.com/whats-on/funz-andamp-gamez/

Finally legends, check out the the full Wilfredo Xmas song and chuck them a few pence here: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/peace-all-over-world-at-christmas/id948780914

Once you’ve done that, share this bloody podcast with friends far and wide. It’s a labour of love and a humble honour when comedians chat to us but it would be lovely for lots of people to hear it. Thanks, pal.

Funny Looking Podcast 18 Phil Ellis & Alastair Clark

Previously on Serial….

It’s nice that a murder mystery has reminded everyone how great podcasts are. If you like Serial you are GUARANTEED to like Funny Looking and you are very welcome.

This episode straddles the two homes of Funny Looking.

Liverpool, the New York of Europe which gave us the greatest band in the world (Space) and also is home to a growing alt comedy scene. Alastair Clark is at the heart of this new generation of funny people and you will learn lots from his interview.

Whilst in Manchester when we’re not listening to The Smiths at the Hacienda drinking Boddingtons, we’re huge fans of Phil Ellis. Someone we loved at 2013’s Edinburgh and who came back in 2014 with a Kids Show that wowed audiences and critics alike. He warms up for his Soho Theatre run with a chat to Funny Looking.

Now you’re done, check out all the links below and spread the word about our humble pod. We really need it. Cheers.

FLP 16 Liverpool Comedy Festival Special 02 Geins Family Giftshop & James Acaster

Can you believe it? A second podcast in just over a week?

We thought we would help lift the post Ed Fringe gloom with a sharp focus on the upcoming:

www.liverpoolcomedyfestival.com

Continuing from the smashers of the last podcast we have two great chats and some tip top steer for you.

Ed is the 2nd quarter of Geins Family Giftshop after Kiri last time. (Maybe we should always have a member of GFG on?) Recorded at the very start of the festival he sounds as fresh as a daisy!

Now book a ticket here:

www.thecomedytrust.com/comedy-festival/whats-on/geins-family-gift-shop-kiri-pritchard-mclean/

And watch their twisted YouTube channel for screams and giggles:

http://www.geinsfamilygiftshop.co.uk/

We have been fans of James Acaster for a while now, can you hear it in Petes voice? Fresh after a Salford preview, we solidly resisted asking about cabbaging. See you there?

www.thecomedytrust.com/comedy-festival/whats-on/james-acaster-recognise/

http://www.jamesacaster.com/

At the time of publishing they are both Fosters Comedy Award nominees. Good luck to all!

Tucked in the middle of these chats is a location report from Gav on what could be his favourite Museum ever. And it is only going to get better!

http://www.museumofcomedy.com

Our other reccomendies included:

Sofie Hagan and her podcast of comedians stories:

The touring bravery that is Setlist:

And the brilliant stand up of Eddie Pepitone:

Special!

Oh what times we had! Don’t go… (see you there!)

We had an amazing time and saw and met amazing people.  One of them was the smashing Holly Burn:

A really enjoyable Skype chat with one of the funniest and most inventive performers around at the moment.

Equally we had a brilliant but snatched chat with Nadia Kamil & John-Luke Roberts:

Two hugely talented, thoughtful and silly writers and performers.

We have launched our gift to the world.  The Brian Gittins Radio Show Archive:

Funny Looking Podcast 10 – Tweedy in “Whats a Happening?”

Tweedy Clown. Post Dippy Eggs, pre Jeremy Kyle encounter.

Pod X is here. A whole year has past and we are still enjoying ourselves. Still seeking out the funny and still wanting to share it with you. Our beloved listeners.

The rather sordid setting of Pete’s bedroom we celebrate this feat with a short through back to the lovely people we have talked to. Are our podcasts are here for you to enjoy and peruse.  The best thing we have done is get to talk to people we admire and respect. And we would like to talk to you too. Say hello to us on Twitter of over on Facebook.  Or if you want to leave us a review on itunes for our birthday, we’d be ok with that too.

In our Comedy Round Up:

Pete & Claire went to Group Therapy in Manchester. Pete found a soft spot for James Acaster & we all enjoyed the Josh Widdicombe Podcast that James features in. Pete and Claire had the big ticket, Harry Hill and shared his sausage time.  Gav discovered, via Pete, Marc Maron, Podcast joy.  And we also talked about Dead Cat Comedy, hosted by Red Redmond. Not his real name.  Pete & Claire finally got to see the Maximum Nonsense of Tony Law. Buy the song!

This months interview is with Tweedy, an amazingly funny clown and performer that Gav has been watching at Giffords Circus for years. Just funny. Funny for everybody. Check out Tweedy at his website, or start with a clip HERE.

We saw the stupendous Jaime Kilstein at the equally excellent event and North West comedy mainstay that is XS Malarkey.

TV Times – Gav hasn’t been out much recently so a LOT of TV was watched. Kevin Eldon finally gets the spotlight with ‘It’s Kevin’. Lots of voices in the head with ‘The Mimic’. Hearty Congratulation! to ‘Anna & Katy’.  Pete & Claire caught up with ‘Derek’ – hear Gav’s views of Derek after one of the cast asked him live what he thought, over at our sporadic Live Podcast Spreaker Page.

So well has this year gone, we are going on holiday together – oh yes – The Mach Comedy Fest. We are too excited… Will we see you there? Let us know if you are going.

Finally, Gav has discovered Blogs. Too late?

He is enjoying – Louise ConranMartin MorRuss Monkeywithagunn – But we are most indebted to Ste Price for his Flog piece for us – Good stuff and tons more links here.

We love you and we love hearing from you.

Stay lovely.

Gav, Pete & Claire.

 

 

Funny Looking Podcast 09 – Bonus – The Full Dolan

So here it is, the extended version of our chat with Mr Michael J Dolan. It was probably our longest interview yet and whilst an absolute pleasure to talk with MJD, it made the whole thing a bloody nightmare to edit. This is a 45 minute version of the interview which is packed full of good stuff.

Michael discusses his origins as a stand up and how he came to record his album Dress To Depress last year. He also covers being accused of misogyny, how he reacted and how it’s affected his comedy. My favourite bit was hearing his plans for his new show.

A man who clearly loves comedy and is constantly striving to be smarter and funnier with every joke. We hope you enjoy.

Funny Looking 10 will be with you very soon. It may be slightly delayed as Gav is currently in a post Thatcher week of mourning. Wait…I mean celebration. Seriously, I’ve never seen him so happy and it was a pleasure to break the good news to him.

If you enjoy this honest celebration of all we find funny then tell a friend. It really does take bloody ages to edit an interview so we’d appreciate your support.

Don’t forget for the Gifted & Talented there are Dolan related extension activities here.

 

Funny Looking Podcast 09 – Dolan’s Hour

Dolan’s Hour

Here’s Funny Looking Pod 09 and it’s a busy one. From established comedians to those trying out for the first time.

What a chocker “Comedy Round-Up”. (Gav is warming to it…) From Joe Lycett to David Trent via Tom Allen and Mr Kitson. What a line up! Throw in a Gorilla and you have the mantle piece photo to end them all.

Our interviewee is Manchester comedian Michael J Dolan. Pete chatted with Michael for a few hours the other week meaning it’s a great interview packed full of insight but also an absolute horror show to edit. We are very much looking forward to putting out the full edit later in the month http://michaeljdolan.co.uk

Thank you for to the lovely Spreaker people for giving our live nonsense a little highlight – why not come join the party here. You can also subscribe to this 2nd pod via itunes.

Gav has been on two trips out this time around. Firstly to be involved in a filming session where he was cast as a seedy old man. The wonders of make up! Secondly Gav took his inner teacher to see some students try stand up for the first time. With the smashing Keddy Sutton.

If you enjoy this then tell iTunes and then tell us on Twitter!

All the very best. G & P

Couple of extra bits:

Just to let you know we are getting over excited by The Machynlleth Comedy Festival – See you there?

Thank you to Andy Hollingworth for photo permission.

Funny Looking Podcast 05 August 2012 Updated

Andy Zaltzman, the legend, is our honoured and treasured for podcast number 05. The Bugle has to be the finest funniest podcast and from our lowly spot we crick our neck as we look up to them so much.  Recorded before the Olympics, we are concerned that his daily attendance to an event has broken the man…

http://thebuglepodcast.com/

We spurt out our love for the explosion of comedy that has lolloped from the loins of Channel 4 over this summer.  In particular we high light “The Function Room” and we cherry pick a top notch classic – “Garth Marenghi’s Dark Place” – Watch it now and be a winner:

http://www.channel4.com/programmes/garth-marenghis-darkplace/4od

We break all boundaries and meet Simon South, to talk about how magic and comedy combines – Simon freaks Gav with a demonstration of the powers of the Dark Side

https://twitter.com/thesimonsouth

Finally – a crushed voiced Gav shows off about all the shows he has seen at this years Ed Fringe and flings out a few top notch recommendations:
