Episode 28: Leanna the Sh!t-Faced Shakespeare Actor – ED & FRIENDS

Dead Drunk Detective is launching this Monday and we happen to share a cast member with the smash West End and Edinburgh Fringe show Sh!t-Faced Shakespeare. They perform an entire Shakespeare play, but every night, one cast member is a babbling drunk. It’s why they call it Sh!t-Faced.


The talented Leanna Wigginton tells Ed about her acting training, her start with the company and the birth of “Horny Helena” in A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

To find out more about Leanna’s other endeavours with Sandy & Danni, check out their Twitter Page as well as their YouTube Channel.

dead-drunk-facebook-banner

Podcast Adventures is proud to announce a brand new podcast. A seven part radio sitcom called Dead Drunk Detective.

In a town where the criminals are literally monsters, zombie private detective Johnny Stumbles is the one man who can straighten out a town as rotten as his flesh. With the help of his sarcastic secretary Betty, Johnny fights the crimes that only the most diabolical of monsters could commit. Whether you’re Dracula, The Bogeyman or The Devil himself; if you’ve got a problem that no one else can solve, he’s the zombie for you… once he sobers up…

Written by Brendan Way (Duck Duck Goose, The Parentheticals), we are really excited to be bringing his fantastic scripts to life in front of a live audience and releasing episodes of the show every Monday in October, culminating in an exciting double-bill finale on Halloween.

The iTunes feed will go live in the coming weeks, until then you can subscribe on Soundcloud or follow us on Facebook or Twitter.

If you would like to be a part of Dead Drunk Detective’s live audience, the details can be found on the Live In The Rotten Flesh page.

Episode 26: Chris the Sitcom Writer – ED & FRIENDS

Chris Gau, the co-writer and producer of hit Channel 5 sitcom Borderline (along with Michael Orton-Tolliver) joins Ed on an extraordinarily hot day where they talk it out, sweat it out and discuss the process of making a comedy about UK Border Control.


Chris had moved in with his parents to focus on writing every day. When his writing partner was stopped at airport customs they began the two year journey to bring Borderline to life. It has since gone on to be a success with audiences and critics alike, and has even been renewed for season 2! Chris and Ed talk about the show’s unconventional methodology, the role of improvisation in the scripting process both before and after casting, and the inevitable comparisons to comedy juggernaut The Office. That, plus Ed and Chris track the temperature in the room by unconventional means.

Episode 25: Steve the Improv Guru – ED & FRIENDS

This week on Ed & Friends; lots of lessons and laughter from improv comedy legend and founder of  Hoopla, Steve Roe!

418436

Steve has made a name for himself teaching and performing improvised comedy. In 2006, he and his friends started meeting above a pub in Balham and eventually created Hoopla, which has since become a comedy community with weekly shows, its own festival and a platter of classes and courses that are training and showcasing comedians in the heart of London.

Steve gives Ed a potted history of improv and chats about making things up on the spot, breaking the rules and keeping a healthy disrespect for the art form. He also shares a soon to be award winning story about some Spanish tourists and a bookshop toilet.
