Not really big in to podcasts myself but my brother told me about this and after much procrastinating I finally got round to listening to it and am oh so happy that I did.
For those of you who don’t know John Oliver and Andy Zaltzman well you should…… John Oliver at least anyway he is currently filling in for Jon Stewart on The Daily Show which is a American political satire program on Comedy Central which is almost daily and is going a bang up job to.
John Oliver is a stand up comedian who has been in Green Wing (small part in first episode) but has also been on Mock The Week and Community.
Andy Zaltzman well he once did a disastrous gig at The Comedy Store in Manchester unfortunately I didn’t get to see this but did catch him at The Lowry last year and to be fair he must have improved his set because he had me in stitches.
The Bugle is an “Audio Newspaper For A Visual World” now I wouldn’t go trying to get your news from this podcast as much of the ‘facts’ and ‘news’ are questionable at best but if you like mammoth pun runs and some wonderfully funny and clever satire then you are in for a treat.
I can not recommend this enough, go listen and enjoy!
