CheapShow is a comedy podcast all about getting the very best out of the worst! Be it Poundlands, Charity Shops, Car Boot Sales or Bargain Bins, hosts Paul Gannon & Eli Silverman poke around in the corners of the high streets and internet to find treasure in the trash.

One week it could be a studio based show, the next, a live comedy event. It could even be a location report or a scripted adventure! A few things it is, however, is rude, crude, silly and drizzled in pop culture, nostalgia and plenty of verbal violence!

    Ep 287: Infinite Knick Knacks

    Ep 287: Infinite Knick Knacks

    Every now and then, an episode of CheapShow comes along that is “nice” and “lovely”. This is one of those rare episodes where Paul and Eli aren’t at each other’s throats (too much)! It’s time to jump into another listener sent PO Box treat this week and the Cheap Chap are overwhelmed by the goodies that are revealed. Luckily, it’s not all flowers and sunbeams, as Paul (typically) finds a way to make something Eli is enjoying, unenjoyable. Whether it’s creating a naughty limerick or crafting another convoluted score system, Gannon’s out to be a proper annoyance. Eli is spoilt rotten by the box’s contents, Paul, however, just wants to spoil it. From Butt Detective toys to Godzilla gadgets, this episode is heaving with knick-knacks – maybe too many for Eli’s heart to take!

    Ep 286: This Is Who's Life?

    Ep 286: This Is Who's Life?

    Somehow, the economy comedy podcast has made it to SEVEN years of existence and Paul and Eli think it’s only fair to do something special. Or at least different. The Cheap Chaps have something up their sleeves and it’s going to make this year’s birthday episode a little more juicy than usual. Things start off familiar enough, with some admin, a chat about self-love and then it’s straight into an Off Brand/Brand Off segment all about instant coffee. So far, so good… But when an old familiar face turns up during the proceedings, things take a very unexpected turn, but why and for who? Expect revelations, shocks and scandals aplenty in this week’s reminiscence filled episode!

    Ep 285: 2 True 4 Real

    Ep 285: 2 True 4 Real

    It’s all fun and games until things get “too real” for Paul and Eli this week. What begins as a simple party game soon turns into a sober and devastatingly reflective experience. It’s a Gannon’s Golden Game from hell and no one gets out with their dignity intact. Think of it like a body swap film but with none of the hi-jinks and joy. Luckily, the rest of the show isn’t as awkward. It’s time to take a trip to the past as Paul pulls out another excuse to talk about “Look-In” magazines when he happens upon an annual celebrating the best of the 1970s pop culture landscape. Oh, what fun!

    Ep 284: Juicy Jubilee

    Ep 284: Juicy Jubilee

    We hope you’re thirsty this week, because Paul and Eli are going to be diving into a tiny treasure trove of fizzy drinks… Sadly, that means they’re going to get a visit from the Soda Jerk Master himself, Juicy Jeremy. He’s back with a collection of soft drinks to taste and test. There is even one drink from his jalopy that the cheap chaps have been desperately trying to get their hands on for a while, but will it live up to expectations? However, Juicy Jeremy hasn’t come alone as, unbeknownst to him, there is a certain animal fancying candy man who has a few treats of his own to offer. All this AND Paul’s got a shocking royal confession to get off his chest, it’s a proper fizzy and frothy episode!

    Ep 283: Norwegian Goods

    Ep 283: Norwegian Goods

    After getting lost in the woods for two episodes, Paul and Eli are back doing what they do best. Whatever that is! Long time contributor Ivenne has sent the cheap chaps a box of goodies from Norway (and Sweden) and it’s packed with sauces, tat and candy. Eli doesn’t need an excuse to talk sauce, so he is rather excited about the Lee Kum Kee Cooking Sauce collection as well as the lemon grass siracha and Vietnamese soy sauce. Paul? He isn’t excited at all. Things improve when its time for a European Price of Shite, with items obtained from Norwegian charity shops. For Paul, he is most excited by the folk cassette that Eli promptly ruins with his improvised, horrific lyrics. Things don’t improve when a few new characters turn up, each one more pointless and volatile than the last. Put the kettle on, grab a hot drink and get cozy, it’s CheapShow time!

    Ep 282: Gannon's Second Golden Quest Part Two

    Ep 282: Gannon's Second Golden Quest Part Two

    This week is the “thrilling” conclusion to Gannon’s Second Golden Quest! Okay, maybe not “thrilling” but it’s definitely the finale to this drawn-out disaster! Last week, Eli failed his first challenge and lost out on £3, can he salvage his reputation by successfully completing the next three tests of skill and cognitive ability? The answer will probably not surprise you. As the cheap chaps head deeper into the woods, they are re-joined by Sir Salty Freshone and The Quest Master who continue to be obsessed with nappies for men and whatever the hell “chocca” is! Finally, Paul can’t seem to go 30 minutes without having an accident, will he even live through his own quest?
    Find out in Part Two of this mystical walkabout adventure!

The best podcast I’ve ever listened to!

The cheap show podcast is the without a doubt the best podcast I have ever listened to. Paul and Eli are an Amazingly funny duo that work well and bounce hilarious comedy off one another. It has has the off brand brand off section of the show which is not only funny but informative. With Paul’s page turners, Gannons golden games, tales from the dance floor and shop floor. Which weeks episode somehow always goes off on a funny, rude and hilarious tangent. You really have to listen to this podcast. You will not regret it. :)

Cheapshow: The economy comedy podcast with a heart of gold!

Cheapshow is, pound for pound, the best value podcast on the market. There isn’t anything else quite like it. Downright hilarious, delightfully gross low-brow humour blended with surrealist Pythonesque nonsense. Paul
