Justin and Adam are joined by The Shelf regular Tegan live at the Imperial Hotel for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
An indiscrete story about Wil Anderson and a poof, Tegan dropping the C-Bomb, James Bond, bus toilets, Hey No Dad, Justin's watch, Tegan touching celebrities, Jeremy Renner gawking at J.Lo, faceboob, 90s shows making a comeback and <insert joke here>.
For hardcore Shelf fans, there are tram bells. Also, all these live podcasts have visual jokes in them that we don't really explain. Enjoy!
Justin and Adam are joined by Geraldine Hickey and Anne Edmonds from The Downlow (you can hear them Sundays on RRR). Eddo and Gezza normally talk about footy and other kinds of sport (with Kate McLennan), and we do eventually get on to that topic, but first you can hear us all bitching and moaning about our comedy festival shows. Also, we find out how they get the bubbles into a soda stream and it's surprisingly spiritual.
The first of our LIVE podcasts, recorded at The Imperial Hotel during the Melbourne International Comedy Festival (tickets still available for other episodes at comedyfestival.com.au) this one featuring The Shelf teaming up with the Little Dum Dum Club podcast - Justin and Adam with Tommy Dassalo and Karl Chandler. Things get out of hand pretty quickly with a trip to a brothel, some dicey behaviour in a gay sex-on-premises establishment, doing shows in Town Hall storage facilities, school reunions, bullying Dilruk Jayasinha and getting ragged on in song by a busker.
This has everything you want in a Shelf podcast. Tram bells, sirens, walking to a cinema, driving around Melbourne. We ask all the big questions, like what was The Fonz doing in his office in the toilet? Why do people do those "One Man <insert tv show / movie trilogy here>" shows? How does that Wizard of Oz / Pink Floyd thing work if they have incredibly different running times? Why doesn't Doctor Who trick a robot into a hole? Why isn't Apple as easy as it should be? Why is it so windy? Plus, you'll get to meet the new cosmic superhero, The Bronze Herald, wielder of the Poower Cosmic. All this and the Dutch poo shelf echelon.
The Shelf Podcast Show will feature some very special guests in a series of The Shelf Versus... podcasts where Justin and Adam go head to head with the stars of Australia's (and possibly the World's) funniest podcast stars.
First weekend (Saturday 28th March) kicks off with The Shelf versus The Little Dum Dum Club - Adam Richard and Justin Hamilton with Tommy Dassalo and Karl Chandler. Hey Dickhead, indeed. TIX ONLY $15.
Easter Sunday (Sunday 5th April) is The Shelf versus The Poofcast, the first on-stage reunion of Talking Poofy for over 2 years. The emails have already started a fight between these bitches, so this show might be toxic. TIX ONLY $15.
The footy is back in full swing (Saturday 11th April), so we are going sports mad with The Shelf versus The Downlow, featuring renowned footy experts Anne Edmonds, Geraldine Hickey and Kate McLennan. TIX ONLY $15.
What happens at The Shelf stays at The Shelf. Unless it is in The Shelf Podcast.
Live podcast every weekend of the Comedy Festival at The Imperial. There will be special guests, as well as very special Podcast Crossover episodes, like a comic book team-up. There will be episodes where Adam and Justin talk incessantly about Doctor Who, Interstellar and other malarkey.
The comedy show you won't see on TV just became the comedy show you won't hear on the radio, but you can watch us record it live. Tickets are cheap, and there will be a chair for everybody, but the show won't go for three hours.
The Shelf Podcast Show 3pm Sat & Sun (plus Good Friday and Easter Monday) Mar 28 - Apr 19 Tickets comedyfestival.com.au
