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.

Flog: Too Much Gittins?


The Brian Gittins Radio Show Archive is here…

It has got unseemly. Hasn’t it? Our enthusiasm for this man.

It seems that at the same time this podcast and concept was born. In some dark corner of the south coast, Brian Gittins, a seemingly unsuccessful stand up, took to broadcasting.

Discovering his live Spreaker podcast only 2 or 3 in, it quickly became the must listen to event. Why? I have no idea.

Whole episodes where given over to testing an effective contact with Skype.

Terrible robots and their creators called in.

Super star callers were elevated to mythic levels and we dreamed they would call in. Then they disappeared.

David Edwards came into our lives.

Poppy & Titty Girl. Adam Warren & Charles Petrescu. We worried for Snotface but we hoped he would call.

And we called in. Initially burnt and rejected for being boring. I found my corner. Sometimes I sing to Brian.

I sing when I am worried for him. Happy for him. Sad for him.

It is the only place I sing. I have found a voice. Brian gave me that.

Brian Gittins might have left Spreaker forever.

It is harder to find the older shows. On Spreaker or on iTunes. So I have given them a home. An archive. A memorial.

I pledge to put every single episode in that archive. And keep it there. For you.

You can help me. Listen to an episode. Comment on it. Who called in? What was discussed? What went wrong? What was played? Lets make this the authoritative Brian Gittins archive on the Internet, way above all the rest.

Now you can go right back to the start. Come on that journey that some of us have been on. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll get angry. Bored. And annoyed.

It is what he would have wanted.

Flog – The Michael J Dolan Study Circle

http://michaeljdolan.co.ukHere at Funny Looking Podcast it is our aim to educate… entertain… and er…


As I am sure you are aware, this month, March 2013, we have a fantastic interview with Michael J. Dolan. Michael is a stand-up based here in the North West and is one of those annoying comedians that thinks and cares and strives to be both funny but also thoughtful and entertaining.

Because of this terrible affliction of being both self reflective and empathetic he recently came out as a misogynist.  Here, in this Flog post, we are going to give you all the component parts, put together in handy package, to allow you the informed Funny Looking listener the chance to see all the facets of the discussion and come up with your own response.

Could your discursive essays, finally squeezing all the fun out of comedy, be handed in next Monday. Alternatively leave us a comment below on how annoying we are.

Fit the 1st

Listen to the first part of our podcast, up to the first part of our interview with Michael. You can find it here. Of course!

Fit the 2nd

Go to Michael’s website order and buy is recording of the show in question. Alternatively listen to it free, on Spotify here. Shame on you.

Fit the 3rd

Now read the article that Michael wrote on the fantastic website The Skinny. Have a think about the things he says. Do you agree? Is Michael being too harsh upon himself? Should Michael go to jail? I’ll be at risk of being too flippant about this very thoughtful discussion?

Fit the 4th

Now listen to our special Spreaker podcast. Here I have put an extract of the Woman’s Hour discussion in question. Listen for yourself.

Fit the Final

Now listen to the remaining part of the interview with Michael J Dolan. (Remember the full interview you will be published as a Bonus podcast by the end of this month)

Extension Activities (for Spoffs)

I mentioned a very famous joke by Billy Connolly from the mythical 1970s, time almost forgotten by many people but not Gav. You can watch said joke here and perhaps compare and contrast.

Please hand in all essays with Harvard referencing as usual – much love and looking forward to parents evening.
