Geekanory Part 4: “L.A. Daggers” - S2Ep10

September 21st, 2019

Part 4 of our Geekanory special arrives with aplomb! This week's short story is read by standup comedian and podcaster Zach Williams and was penned by Daniel Morgan; a short story entitled "L.A. Daggers", which sees local journalist Ashley Quinlaven trying - and failing - to fit in backstage with Swansea's hottest rock group.

Zach is a great friend of our show and you will instantly recognise his mellifluous voice from the Most Best Podcast. If you haven't listened to this show before then we urge you to do so at once! Fans of the Comedy Geek Sketch Podcast may want to start with the episode Dan guested on... but they're all incredibly fun listens!

When he's not pursuing his quest to find the co-host with the mo-host, Zach can usually be found making people laugh in various locations on the South Wales standup scene with his unique brand of dark and musical comedy so be sure to go and watch him the first chance you get. You will be glad you did.

As always we encourage you to subscribe to our show and leave us a favourable review on your favourite podcast app - not only does it mean the world to us when we read your lovely comments but it also helps promote our comedy show to other potential listeners.

Geekanory Part 3: “The Race to Not Sit Next to the Boss at the Work’s Christmas Lunch” - S2Ep9

September 15th, 2019

In this 3rd instalment of our Geekanory extravaganza, Comedy Geek cast regular Marie Edwards reads a short story written by Eleanor Freeman entitled "The Race to Not Sit Next to the Boss at the Work's Christmas Lunch", a tale of one woman's struggle to avoid becoming separated from the "fun crew" at the annual works festivities. Will she get stuck next to the boring accounts department, the smelly cleaner, or worse... the boss? You'll just have to listen and find out!

Eleanor Freeman lives with her husband, daughter and hamster Pootle in Warwickshire and has written many short stories, play and poems. She has just completed her first novel, set in the 14th century during the Black Death, and is also working on another novel set in a 19th century workhouse, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for these. When Eleanor is not writing about death and disease, she likes to lighten things up a little by watching and writing comedy, even taking the plunge and performing standup comedy under the mentorship of Phoenix Nights' Janice Connolly! Eleanor is currently living her dream (well, nearly!), by combining her love of writing with running her own career advisory service, 'Little Yolk'.

We were absolutely thrilled to receive this story from Eleanor and couldn't wait to include it on our show; we hope you enjoy!

This week's narrator, Marie Edwards, is known to many of our listeners as the delightful voice behind our highly peculiar agony aunt "Ask Angela" and we can assure you she will be back for more comedy sketch madness very soon. In the meantime why not visit our website at www.comedygeeksketchpodcast.com and check out all the previous episodes she's featured in! Oh go on, you know you want to!

And why not take the opportunity to subscribe to our show and leave us a favourable rating on your preferred podcatcher... we'll be your best friends!

Tom also treats us to some of his favourite comedy acoustic songs! Comedy and music... what else could you possibly wish for!

Dan Thomas Interview

May 20th, 2019

He finally got round to learning how to ride a bike this year, it’s frenetic and utterly charming standup comedian Dan Thomas.
 
Dan has been performing standup comedy since 2005 and has toured all across the UK, performing in both English and Welsh and supporting Russel Kane on tour. As you can imagine, we were thrilled to record a bunch of comedy sketches with Dan recently in Cardiff and these will be featured in the Comedy Geek Sketch Podcast S2Ep4 (available June 1st 2019).
 
Amidst the comedy sketch madness we took some time out to chat with Dan about his passion for books and movies, outdated video game consoles, t-shirts with obscure pop culture references, his outlook on standup comedy, his favourite salad (Spoiler: It's just lettuce, cucumber and tomatoes), and why it’s ok to eat sushi incorrectly. He also regales us with a truly memorable story that we wish we could un-hear. Seriously…ew. You have been warned.
 
Follow Dan Thomas on Twitter and Instagram @danthomascomedy and make sure you catch him performing standup live at a comedy venue near you!
