CheapShow is a comedy podcast all about getting the very best out of the worst! Be it Poundlands, Charity Shops, Car Boot Sales or Bargain Bins, hosts Paul Gannon & Eli Silverman poke around in the corners of the high streets and internet to find treasure in the trash. One week it could be a studio based show, the next, a live comedy event. It could even be a location report or a scripted adventure! A few things it is, however, is rude, crude, silly and drizzled in pop culture, nostalgia and ...

Almost ten years after they aired; Community, Parks & Recreation, The Office, and 30 Rock continue to have massive fan bases. Considering their ratings when they were airing, it's safe to say they're more popular now than ever. For an all too brief time; they were NBC's "Comedy Night Done Right" block on Thursday Night. What was it like to watch a four new episodes of four great series on one night? Join host Matt Cail for a bi-weekly podcast that goes back and examines each and every time n ...
 
Being a comedian is the hardest thing anyone can do. As such, those who achieve even a modicum of success in this selfless, humanitarian, dangerous career are rightly held up as the best of us. True heroes. In this series David Reed will interview some of comedy's most available exponents and ask them "Who are you under all that skin?", "When did comedy first bite you?" and "What's the microphone for?" as he delves deeper than anyone has ever delved inside the comedian.

As a tribute to the great Jackie Mason - who passed away this weekend - we have a reprise of our episode on Caddyshack 2. Jackie starred in the movie - which has the notoriety of being the worst sequel OF ALL TIME! Jackie took on the Rodney Dangerfield role for the movie - in this classic battle of the snobs vs. the slobs, (Spoiler Alert: The slobs…
 
It's another HOT day in the House of Pickles and, predictably, Paul and Eli aren't coping with it very well. Even after deciding to keep this episode very simple, it soon careens into heat induced nonsense. This week, Paul brings along an intriguing Tales from the Shop that keeps them both guessing until the bitter end. The Cheap Chaps also return,…
 
Legendary comedian Rick Overton joins us to talk comedy. Rick's IMDB page is the size of a phone book; which includes Beverly Hills Cop, playing Matt Damon's boss in Steven Soderbergh's, The Informant! - to Showtime's: I'm Dying Up Here. Rick also has a new comedy special, out called: Rick Overton's Set List. We do a deep dive into Rick's comedy or…
 
It's a time hopping edition of the economy comedy podcast this week as Paul and Eli take a trip back to the 1970s and the 1990s. One ends up being far more troubling than the other... In Paul's Page Turners, Paul brings along a book that is both a fascinating insight into "lad culture" of the 1990s and a depressing deep dive through a book designed…
 
From the archives: Sasha Baron Cohen plays activist Abbie Hoffman in the Netflix film, The Trial of the Chicago 7. As seen in the film, by day, Hoffman was in the courtroom - fighting conspiracy charges. By night, he would regularly perform at The Second City. Hoffman's stage appearance marked a transition at the theater - from a bunch of squares d…
 
Finally. You asked for it, Eli begged for it and Paul eventually decided to let it happen. This week, we tackle... EGGS! A few months ago, Eli heard that no matter what the cost of the eggs you buy, there is literally no difference in taste. Apparently, a food expert said that, but the Cheap Chaps decide to test that claim for themselves in a vigor…
 
It's another epic CheapShow adventure, and this week, Paul & Eli are facing the unknown as they investigate the mysterious Rendlesham Forest in Suffolk, UK. In December 1980, two American soldiers based at an US Air Base saw a UFO land in the Forest and their story became one of the most fascinating tales of extra-terrestrial contact in history. in…
 
No new episode this week. In fact, no new episodes for several weeks, as I'm taking a break - or as they say in the business - a hiatus. Sorry folks! I've also used the following site as a jumping off point on learning how to be an ally to Canada's Indigenous people: https://www.globalcitizen.org/en/content/how-to-support-indigenous-communities-can…
 
When Paul & Eli receive a massive "Price of Shite" package in their PO Box, it becomes quickly apparent that it's way too large to use in just one segment of the show... So let's make it the whole show! There is so much to wade through that the pressure begins to show, especially when there is a chance to gamble to grab some BIG P'twings. Eli gets …
 
To bookend the pandemic, we have a CH101 reprise on comedy helping to deal with tragic events. We look at comedy right directly after 9/11. They said irony was dead - but comedy help us pull through tragedy - especially with The Onion, SNL, Letterman, The Daily Show, and Gilbert Gottfried's legendary joke at the Friar's Club Roast. Learn more about…
 
It’s official, the recent heatwave in the UK has finally gotten to Paul and Eli. This week, it's going to be tough for the Cheap Chaps to make it through with their sanity intact, especially when they have to wade through one of the most disgusting "Tales from the Shop Floor" in recent memory. In fact it could be the last! Eli is on the rampage in …
 
We have arrived at the end of 2009, and we've got four delightful Christmas specials to look back upon today! Original airing on December 10, 2009, I'm discussing Community S01E12, "Comparative Religion"; Parks and Recreation S02E12, "Christmas Scandal"; The Office S06E13, "Secret Santa"; and 30 Rock S04E08, "Secret Santa". Not only do two episodes…
 
Our guest is Art Bell; the man who pitched the idea that became Comedy Central. Art was also the head of programming at the network. We do a deep dive into the origin of such iconic shows as Mystery Science Theater 3000, South Park, The Daily Show - and talk about the early careers of Jon Stewart, Marc Maron, and Bill Maher. Art also has a new book…
 
It's another rambling adventure on CheapShow this week as the Cheap Chaps head onto Hampstead Heath for a curious adventure. Paul's been dragged to the heath by Eli to help him make sense of a terrible dream he had. When Eli awoke, he scrawled down four riddles that Paul must make sense of and navigate the Heath to see where all this is leading to.…
 
From the archives: I talk to David Litt- former head joke writer for President Obama. We dive into what made Obama funny in the Oval Office; and contrast that to Trump's vastly different sense of presidential humor. (Trump's humor wheelhouse: mocking a disabled reporter and making fun of a sexual assault victim.) You might also know David Litt from…
 
Are you brave enough for our newest CheapShow format? This week, Gannon presents a new idea to Eli and it's a rollercoaster of a premise. It's our new "Black Bin Bag" episode, where Paul stuffs all the PO Box overflow, odd charity shop trinkets and long forgotten snacks in to a black bin bag and Eli has to randomly pull out an item for review. Will…
 
I'm skipping past Thanksgiving since nothing new was on TV, bringing us one week closer to the end of 2009. Going back to December 3, 2009, on the air tonight was: Community S01E11 - "The Politics of Human Sexuality", Parks and Recreation S02E11 - "Tom's Divorce", The Office S06E12 - "Scott's Tots", and 30 Rock S04E07 - "Dealbreakers Talk Show #000…
 
From the archives: In 1961, Dick Gregory was the first African American comedian to headline a white club. A pioneer in the world of stand-up comedy, Gregory's material mocked the bigotry and racism of the time. Gregory is equally known for his activism as well as his comedy. He's one of the most influential comedians in comedy history; inspiring t…
 
It's CheapShow biggest show to date and it's packed with amazing/frightening music, littered with celebrity judges and full of disastrous calamities. Yes, it's Urinevision 2021, the best and only international podcast song contest in the world… As far as we know, we haven't checked. In this epic 3 hour adventure, you'll hear 13 weird and wonderful …
 
Urinevision is on the way! As Paul & Eli dot the i's and cross the t's, they decide to take some time to chill before the big show and chill. In this more "relaxed fit" episode, the Cheap Chaps take in some of the slightly more offbeat sides to the Disco craze of the 1970s. Over the next hour, prepare for some Europop goodness with some Eurovision …
 
The run-times are getting leaner and meaner. Not that much meaner. I'm still making fun of Jay Leno; but tonight, Oprah Winfrey gets some criticism too. Going back to November 19, 2009, tonight's schedule includes: Community S1E10 - "Environmental Science", Parks and Recreation S2E10 - "Hunting Trip", The Office S6E11 - "Shareholder Meeting", and 3…
 
Our special guest is Wayne Federman author of the new book: The History of Stand-Up: From Mark Twain to Dave Chappelle. Wayne's impressive creds include Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Larry Sanders Show, Silicon Valley - as well as head monologue writer for The Tonight Show. We do some serious deep cuts into the history of stand-up comedy. Learn more ab…
 
It's a white hot blast of thick, hard nostalgia this week when Paul & Eli receive a PO Box delivery that is overflowing with joyous tat! This week, there's a rather colourful edition of Silverman's Platter that pitches an 80s edgy kids comic book flexidisc against the warm, familiar sounds of vintage pirate radio jingles! Elsewhere in the pod, a re…
 
From Our Archives: Remember in Goodfellas when mobster Henry Hill took his date, Karen, to The Copacabana? That was pretty true to form. The mob actually owned the legendary club. We saw this recently in the movie The Irishman - when Don Rickles was on stage performing for Crazy Joe Gallo. We dive into the mob’s connection with The Copacabana - whe…
 
As Eeyore once said "“They’re funny things, Accidents. You never have them till you’re having them.” We think this best sums up this week's "epic" crossover episode with Mr Biffo's Digitiser. What begins as a gentle stroll through 100 Aker Wood, ends in poo play talk, retro gaming, arguments and a picnic jammed with weird and wonderful treats. Oh, …
 
I once again fail at coming in at only an hour long episode, but there's just too much to talk about. We catch up to November 12, 2009, and the new episodes of Community, Parks and Recreation, The Office, and 30 Rock that aired that night. On the schedule tonight are the following Community S1E09 - "Debate 109", Parks and Recreation S2E09 - "The Ca…
 
It takes a brave person to even attempt to bring back the "Cut Price Life Hacks" segment, it's takes an imbecile to try and cram it into a Gannon's Golden Games, but that's what Paul has done this week, and he may live to regret it. Elsewhere in the podcast, Eli is on a sauce and noodle mission and he is sick and tired of Paul's constant harassment…
 
It's an episode of "firsts" this week. It's the first time you get to properly meet Margery Craddock and her "back alley machines", and it's the first time Paul tries to create a segment that directly competes with The Sauce Report. Both don't go very well. At all. Despite all this, there is still plenty of time for some CheapShow favourites. There…
 
Onwards we go, into November 5, 2009, and the new episodes of Community, Parks and Recreation, The Office, and 30 Rock that aired that night. On the schedule tonight is I talk about Community S1E08 - "Home Economics", Parks and Recreation S2E08 - "Ron and Tammy", The Office S6E09 - "Double Date", and 30 Rock S4E04 - "Audition Day". After a 90 minut…
 
Paul & Eli once again escape the House of Pickles to venture back on to the High Streets and investigate the newly opened Charity Shops. After months of endless, wistful window shopping, the Cheap Chaps can now go inside and see what treasures they can find amongst the trash. It's another simpler "out and about episode" (so soon?) where they challe…
 
We're back in the House of Pickles for more scatological, economical red hot podcast action! This week we are gifted with another bespoke Price of Shite from our PO Box, and in a twist to the normal routine, these offerings have been sourced from the infamous wish.com! As a result, each item is more perplexing than the last! It's also time again to…
 
We are heading back October 29, 2009 and the new episodes of Community, Parks and Recreation, The Office, and 30 Rock that aired that night. With Halloween just two days away; I talk about four Halloween specials, I talk about Community S1E07 - "Introduction to Statistics", Parks & Recreation S2E07 - "Greg Pikitis", The Office S6E08 - "Koi Pond", a…
 
Spring is in the air, there's more daylight and there are (hopefully) brighter days ahead! With all that said, it's up to Paul & Eli to ruin all that joyous potential with another of their occasional "walkabout" episodes! This week, CheapShow seeks renewal, rebirth or at the very least, a quiet picnic out of the way of other humans. Their journey, …
 
How can Paul & Eli possibly continue looking for cheap treats when everything they know is destroyed? Luckily Jimmy Biscuits has one last trick on his sleeve and it returns the bargain boys to a very familiar location to carry on delivering economy comedy content! This week, there is a packed bag of cheap eats, some delightful and some utterly frig…
 
A look back at October 22, 2009 and the new episodes of Community, Parks and Recreation, The Office, and 30 Rock that aired that night. I talk about Community S1E06 - "Football, Feminism and You", Parks & Recreation S2E06 - "Kaboom", The Office S6E07 - "The Lover", and 30 Rock S4E02 - "Into the Crevasse". Some other tangents include: the most anyon…
 
Come out to the podcast, we'll get together, have a few laughs! This week is the thrilling climax to the many threads that have been dangling over the podcast for the past few weeks. Paul & Eli find everything they hold dear to be in danger when the terrifying "Hairy Brothers" and their goons violently take over the podcast. It's a race to find Bil…
 
Paul forces Eli to take a trip to Gannonland this week. Against his wishes, Eli is made to play two games that, when the dust settles, may have cost them their sanity. Do Paul and Eli "Know Jack?" and will a simple card game called "Game Off!" force them to make some very troubling decisions? There is a very good chance that it will bring out the v…
 
A look back on October 15, 2009: the first time Community, Parks & Recreation, The Office, and 30 Rock all aired new episodes in the same two hour block. I look at Community S1E05 - "Advanced Criminal Law", Parks & Recreation S2E05 - "Sister City", The Office S6E06 - "Mafia", and 30 Rock S4E01 - "Season 4". I also get lost on some other subjects; l…
 
We hope you have some soap and a towel nearby because we are getting extra mucky this week. Before we get to all the "icky stuff", Paul and Eli somehow manage to cram in a Sauce Report and Cheap Eats segment. Once that's out of the way, be prepared. You may never be able to look at Doner Kebab meat the same way, ever again, after this week's Tales …
 
What does a Bee sound like when ejaculating? What do "Crisp Bag Collectors" keep in their bags to "fill them out" and how will Paul cope with being told he has to pay Eli 50p per cum gag? The answer to all three is "terrible" and you'll soon find why in this week's economy comedy podcast. In a packed pod, the cheap chaps dive into some Polish wafer…
 
A feature-length trailer! Long story short, I spent a lot of time doing a lot of research for a lot of stuff that would be unusable for content. I could've hung on to it; but all of this information was in my head now; so why not just get it out. Various topics explored - live reunion specials, now banned episodes, My Name is Earl, Kanye West at th…
 
It's was meant to be a podcast about beans. Could Eli possibly taste the difference between the classic Heinz Baked Beans and some cheap "off brand" alternatives? It should have been simple, but there is a shocking twist and a terrible reveal this week that could cause major problems for CheapShow later on down the line! In amongst the narrative ca…
 
Warning. This is not a drill. Brace yourself and prepare accordingly for a brand new "NOEL WATCH" segment. Yet again, Paul and Eli dive head first into another trough of juicy, hairy Noel Edmonds "goodness". Donated to the PO Box this week was the second of the three "Funny Phone Call" albums that Noel made... But this time, is any of it any good a…
 
It's all the hot, thrilling action of a big money, high stakes auction this week on the pod... squeezed down into a board game! Paul's got another Gannon's Golden Games and this one is based on the hit A&E TV Series "Storage Wars". It's non-stop, thrill-a-minute bidding fury where the risks are huge and the rewards are even... hugher. And if you ha…
 
Don't worry, the title of this show makes sense, honest guv'nor! It's not what you think. Or maybe it is, we don't know how your mind works! All you need to know is that it IS said and DOES make sense in context. Now that's out of the way, let's now apologise for our Bruce Forsyth gag. Actually no, you can find that one out for yourself. Apart from…
 
Football is a sport. It's something Paul & Eli know very little about, but here we are, talking about sport. Kinda. This week is a Silverman's Platter bonanza where we tackle 3 very different types of vinyl oddities. This week, we look into the odd musical career of 1980s comedy double act, The Krankies, we dive into the surprisingly deep history o…
