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
Adam and Justin in the car going to the country, talking about the Hunger Games sequel, Interstellar (of course - Justin has just watched all of the trailers again), old men being mean to Taylor Swift, anti-ambition, decompressed storytelling, Ryan Reynolds vs Chris Pratt, the planning permit avenger, and many other topics all frequently interrupted by the annoying GPS lady.
There are always many requests to find out what music we are playing pre-show and during the breaks at The Shelf. A version of Sia's Chandelier by Puddles Pity Party receieved many comments last night. Justin programs the music, and I will endeavour to link to some of his choices here over time.
Adam and Justin are backstage at The Comic's Lounge with Becky Lucas and special guest Michael Chamberlin, while Wil is performing. Justin has seen Interstellar for the sixth time, prompting some vile innuendo from Adam about his black hole. There is a discussion of fantasy purchases and punitive comedy.
