What a skiddle. Trying to get wordpress to link up to a podcast. Then trying to find a host that allows you to post multiple episodes without paying more than a gym contract a month. So here we are. Finally able to post on iTunes.I have recorded many podcasts over the years. Most of which have never been released online. I will be releasing a mix of vintage podcasts and newer episodes. At the moment it might be a bit haphazard. But give it a few weeks and I think i will find my stride.I need to ask a favour though. Would you please take a listen, subscribe, share and write a little review for me? Thank you. That will really help get this going.
Back in the car this time, driving through to Seapoint, I pass the majestic Camps Bay and explain why they can all get fucked.
Still no joy. Still no effing joy at getting this thing to submit and verify with iTunes.
Do I give up? No.
Do I have to fork out money? Yes.
Recorded in my car on my way to my buddy Gareth Allison’s house for his internet wisdom and skills. Sadly it’s still not resolved.
Anyway. This is a more optimistic post than yesterday. The benefits of your imagination online. Thanks for listening. Again, I appreciate any follows, shares and feedback.
Feeling like shit today. So I just recorded this from the flat.
The banging in my head is made worse by the building site across from me and their flamboyant use of loud tools. This is a shout out to MyCiti bus services. You suck. So so much.
Thank you for the feedback so far folks. All comments and listens appreciated.
I went for a little wander down to the shops and pretty much just spoke to myself like a madman.
Anyway. Here is episode three. Essentially me just moaning about Uber eats and home security.
I tried posting this from my phone and tablet earlier. Didn’t work. In the process of getting home, I ended up in an argument with. Hang on. That’s tomorrow’s episode.
“Rants with Pants” Episode two.
Involves me bashing my shin on a box and calling it quits on the podcast. For today at least.
Folks. Due to a mix of boredom and a need to do something, I have started up a little podcast. It will feature a mix of zero-guests. Why? Too much hassle. Also, I can record my own little rants. Maybe it will be useful for some comedy material. Maybe it will be useful as a poor man’s therapy.
Here it is then. Episode One.
One thing comics do like no others, is drive about and bitch to each other of all the ill’s and woe’s of this comedy industry.
From what acts we like through to whose’ girlfriend slept with who. It can be facinating and all too ego fuelled at the same time.
I started listening to Marc Maron’s podcast about six months ago. I think his voice, intellect and understanding of the industry qualifies him beautifully to hold and host these talks with other comics. I think I found a great deal of comfort listening to the words of the other comics. Honest and beautiful stuff. Stories of people’s lives that I have never heard another person draw out of conversation. Too the comics out there. Listen to these words. They really are significant and usefull to your career and development. To everyone else. It gives an honest open account of what life is like as an entertainer. Not always pretty, but always beautiful.
Rob and I met with the band recently.. We recorded this little interview…
Graeme Watkins Project
I had a chat with a few of the “Starving Comics” a couple of months back. I spoke with Rustum August, Gino Fernandez and Kurt Langeveld about their experiences of being involved in the Cape’s comedy circuit.
Collectively they call themselves the Starving Comics.

I spoke with Jim Jefferies via skype a few months back.
He was coming out to tour in South Africa and I was fortunate enough to open his show for him at the Cape Town Convention Centre.
