This Saturday, a merry of band misanthropes will perform Dead Drunk Detective episodes 1 to 3 in front of a live audience at The Actor’s Temple on Warren Street. And in preparation for this, Podcast Adventures hosted a delightful sit-down read through of the marvellous scripts written by Brendan Way.
There was pizza. There were drinks. The cast that we have assembled is such a wonderful bunch of goofballs, each one as eager to make each other laugh as to help each other get laughs. we can honestly say that whatever the podcast turns in to in the end, the process is going to be made so very enjoyable by this lovely bunch.
Expect to see more than a few costumes on display when we take to the stage this Saturday. Tickets are FREE, so check the details at our Live in the Rotten Flesh Page and prepare for a show that will steal your heart and braaaaains…

This week’s episode of Ed & Friends features talented impressionist, comedian, and filmmaker Tai Campbell.
Tai is the creator of The Impressionismists, a YouTube Channel where he and fellow impressionist Angus Dunican perform competing impressions for your viewing pleasure.
Ed and Tai chat about the work it takes to create a convincing impression, the transformative physical process and the practice it takes. And they have a bunch of fun doing it, with surprise appearances from Barack Obama, Stephen Hawking, Matthew McConaughey and many more…. ehem.. celebs.
