The Living Spit Podcast

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

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!

In this seasonally inappropriate festive special Howard and Stu get all Christmassy as they reminisce about their 2015 cracker "Living Spit's A Christmas Carol." However, as usual, they are waylaid by subjects as diverse as the merits of the band "Keane", Christmas Jokes, Stu's penis (again),whether a rock band has to have a guitar, the "erection section", breeze blocks, and 80's soul singer Aaron Neville. As well as ideas for new merchandise and two new features!

This week the Dopey Duo rewind to the balmy summer of 2016 when they crossed the nation with "The Fabulous Bacon Boys" the second of their acclaimed "Rhyming Trilogy". On the way, they get waylaid by earwax, Billy Connolly, Weston-super-Mare mud, the correct term for a Cornish person and the best way to melt bronze. And Stu comes over all Claire Rayner and gets a bit out of his depth...

In this, the third and final instalment of their Frankenstein series, the Trite Trio give this monster of a show a good send off with much theatrical anecdotary concerning their mounting of it at the Tropicana on Weston Super Mare’s glittering seafront in the long, cold winter of 2016.
 
Including an exclusive interview with band member, Tom Knott and a potted history of the aforementioned dilapidated swimming pool, PLUS excerpts from the autobiographies of Howard Coggins and Diana Dors, musings on Samuel Beckett’s adaptation of the Gruffalo, a letter from Cher which gets Stu’s heart racing and the inside scoop on exactly what Howard and Craig did to annoy Game of Thrones actor, Patrick Malahide.
 
It’s Sony Award-worthy material.
After receiving a flattering comment from Sue Mercer comparing their podcast to a BBC radio 4 arts programme, the trivial trio set out to redress the balance by delving into such sordid topics as Stu’s penis, Bucks Fizz flavoured crisps, Stu’s penis again, human names for birds, more of Stu’s penis, Craig’s attempts to be like Louis Theroux and, yes, you guessed it…a little bit more about Stu’s penis.
 
Including part 2 of Craig’s interview with artistic director of the Salisbury Playhouse, Gareth Machin, and part 2 of Howard and Stu’s interview with Frankenstein band members, Lauryn Rodding and Milky Sadler. Plus the usual japes, jingles and jocularity and a brand new solo spot for Stu!

In part 1 of this “bumper” 10th episode of the podcast, Director Craig Edwards joins Howard and Stu in the studio, and the Turgid Trio get so bogged down in such trivialities as the virtues of puppets, Robert De Niro, the crapness of Craig’s favourite film and the benefits of naked rehearsals that they forget to play a song, and only just remember to discuss their smash hit 2016 show, FRANKENSTEIN.

 
This episode includes EXCLUSIVE interviews with Salisbury Arts Centre’s Gareth Machin (who commissioned the show) and Frankenstein band members Lauryn Redding and Mike Slader, plus the usual japes, jingles and joviality.
Did Magnus Magnusson do the voice bit on 'Revolution 9’?
 
Does Howard’s school bully, ‘Basher McGraw’, listen from prison?
 
And who in God’s name is ‘Sherman…'?
 

These mysteries and more answered (except the Sherman one) on this weeks Podcast as Howard and Stu roll up their trouser legs and take a dip into the murky waters of "Swan Lake” 

 
Featuring an exclusive interview with the REAL talent behind the show: the amazing ballet dancers, Josh Hutchby and Fran Mendo, PLUS a brand new feature (and jingle!) for ‘Handyman Howard’.

This week the Tiresome Twosome explore such diverse topics as Zoom family quizzes, the Coggins test, waiting staff who pretend to be French and at exactly which point in history novelty songs began to get crap. Also, Howard gets his "Winston" out for VE day.

Somehow during all this, they manage to revisit their 2013/14/15 show, The Devil and the Shopkeeper too.

With all the usual japes, jingles and joviality, this episode will delight Spit'eads far and wide.

In an extended bumper episode of the Podcast, the gruesome twosome dive into 2019's The Living Quiz AND include 4 ROUNDS of the quiz for your lockdown pleasure! You lucky people!

Other topics under discussion include how good the Mandolorian is, hurtful heckles, Stu's lockdown haircut and the ways in which Howard is like George Michael.

Plus the usual jingles, japes, theatrical bantz and the inside story on how the show was put together.

Grab a piece of paper, a pen and a stiff drink (you'll probably need it) and enjoy!

Ah, the one that got away...Howard and Stu were supposed to be opening this show tonight. Instead they're stuck at home recording their various ponderings on topics as diverse as internationally renowned Irish folk singers, what the french for "Waffle" is and the physical attributes of different varieties of Lettuce.

Plus the inside scoop on how "Elizabeth" got made, the usual epic bantz, japes and jingles and more lurid tales of those crazy nights on tour in Sturminster Newton.
