The Living Spit Podcast

A brand new Podcast from North Somerset based comedy theatre company, Living Spit

While Stu very selfishly is in hospital assisting his wife in labour, Howard enlists the help of Craig to co-present this episode about the twenty year anniversary of "Up The Feeder, Down the 'Mouth", a legendary show in Bristol's history which Howard and Stu were both in. And they've even managed to bag an interview with one of the show's stars (and co-director), Heather Williams, while the Bristol legend that is Ross Harvey joins them live! 

In this episode, Howard and Stu step back in time to the year 2015 and "re-run the fun” as they examine the origin story of the small theatre they help to run in their hometown of Clevedon, The Theatre Shop! Joined by the ever elusive Fiona Trim, they get waylaid by such diverse subjects as the French word for Beetroot, the inhabitants of Abhu Dhabi's views on the Flintstones, and the trouble with penises. Fun for some of the family!

This time, having run out of shows to talk about, the despotic duo muse on what the would do if they were in charge, as well as regular features, 'Handyman Howard" and "Stuarts Inquiry". But as usual they get sidetracked by subjects as diverse asTime Capsules, Blue Peter dogs, tortoises, pissing in chips, Stu’s holidays and free sweets.

 

In this festive themed episode the Navidad Duad (it's a real word, we looked it up) talk about getting their latest show "Beauty and the Beast" up and running in the middle of various levels of lockdown, and on the way ramble around their completely legal Christmases, french candle holders, Howard’s niche knowledge, sellotape skills, the Christmas sandwich, a potted history of Stu’s tattoos, Christmas telly, Jamie Oliver and potty training as they say goodbye to 2020...

This time in a special edition from the hallowed halls of the Bristol Old Vic the gruesome twosome talk about the very last few shows of "The Six Wives of Henry VIII" and the upcoming "Beauty and the Beast", while ion the way getting sidetracked by subjects as diverse as "The Hendry", The "Coggins Usual", pubic hair, water bottles, Japanese words for wildlife and STIs. As well as very special appearances by Trimmo and Craig;'s daughter, Peggy!

The dynamic duo do Dorset in this special episode of the LSP live from Corfe Castle (or at least live from Howard's van in the Corfe Castle car park...), the venue for tonight's performance of "The Six Wives of Henry VIII".

Midway through the Artsreach leg of their tour, they pause to reflect on the perils of dawdling at Durdle Door, thris-cuits, Bonnie Tyler and the Dorset Steam Fair.

Jam packed with inane observations, epic bantz and exciting news, this is a delicious dollop of Dorsetian daftness for some of the family.

Fresh from their extended summer break Howard, Stu and Craig are back! And this week the tiresome trio become the quivering quartet as they are joined in the studio by their hot-shot producer, Ali Roberston to make some important announcements! It's never that simple though and this time they get sidetracked with musings on Stu's sex education, 70's B-sides, Feargal Sharkey, Ritz biscuits, Lockdown weight gain and public outdoor sex in Cornwall!

In the last of the current series, the tired triad talk once again about "The Odyssey" and feature interviews with the amazing Kates Dimbleby and Sykes about their recollections of making the show, and on the way go on an Odyssey of their own through subjects as unrelated as Howard’s underwear, musicals, the appropriate amount of kisses, personal hygiene habits, Stu’s costume malfunctions, well-designed rolling pins, fraudulent car stickers, and therapy ducks, setting them up nicely for their summer holidays.

In the first part of an epic two parter the tiresome trio talk about "The Odyssey", last year's show made with with the incomparable Kate Dimbleby and talk to her and designer Katie Sykes about the show. But, of course, they manage to get distracted talking about Craig’s Bastard children, contributor dream casting, dead dogs, helicopters over Dorset, poo-poo in swimming pools, whirling flaccid members, and embarrassing celebrity encounters!

This week the pathetic pair natter about their "smash hit", "zeitgeist-y" show about running, "Tortoise Vs Hare". However, as usual they get way laid talking not enough sleep, sellotape, Stu's imaginary pet lizards with wellington boots, the relative merits of age vs youth, Pip Naylor's bench and foamy, bland artichoke soup. As well as the resounding success of Stu's two new features!
