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!

It has guests, videos, songs, reviews, games and dares. We apologise in advance!

    Ep 265: The Black Bin Bag Edition 2

    Ep 265: The Black Bin Bag Edition 2

    Behold! It can bring sweet delights, or it can bring terrible pain. It contains tat amassed from the forgotten corners of the podcast and it all reside in one place… The mythical “Black Bin Bag”! What will Paul an Eli discover this week as they take a deep dive into the unknown? Maybe there will be something delightful to nibble on, or maybe even a toy to tinker with! All the cheap chaps know is that ANYTHING could happen over the next hour. Join them for their 2nd deep dive into the bric-a-brac abyss that lurches from fast food toys, 80’s Claymation mascots, retro gadgets to Scottish snacks, odd chocolate and LOTS more besides. As if to make things more epic, there is a hidden “Price of Shite” game buried in amongst the ephemera, if Eli can find the right number of special items, he has the chance to win a very special prize. If he fails, Gannon’s taking it home. The stakes couldn’t be higher… for a podcast about charity shop treasures, that is! Oh, and apologies for the many uses of the “C-Word”, but unless Eli starts treating our brand-new characters with respect, he is going to get strong blowback! Let the madness begin!

    Ep 264: Buzby Time

    Ep 264: Buzby Time

    Paul & Eli are back in the House of Mash & Egg for another, simple, regular, no frills, super normal episode of CheapShow. This week, the cheap chaps dive into Eli's record collection to uncover a new charity shop purchase. If you are too young to remember, you'll have no idea what "Buzby" is. To be fair, Paul and Eli don't really remember it either, but it brings them back around to talking about Bernard Cribbins, which is nice! He seems nice. If you have ever wondered what a 1970s promotional pop single for the national phone service sounds like, you'll find out in this week's podcast. In fact, if it wasn't for Eli's instance that Paul tries some hot sauce and chili candy, this would be quite the musical episode! Are you ready for "Fizzy Gravy (The Cod Song)"? You won't be!

    EP 263: The Great Dangerous Davies 40th Anniversary Walk

    EP 263: The Great Dangerous Davies 40th Anniversary Walk

    We're back! To celebrate the start of a brand-new year, CheapShow has decided to make a very special podcast. This week, to celebrate its 40th anniversary (ok, we just missed it but...) Paul and Eli are taking to the streets of Northwest London to try and track down the locations of a film no one has probably even heard of! In 1981 a TV movie called "Dangerous Davies" was broadcast, starring Bernard Cribbins, based on a series of barely popular books. As it turns out, it was filmed in the area Eli grew up, so he decides to use this expedition as an excuse to revisit some of his old childhood haunts... and Paul has to put up with it! Is this our most pointless episode to date? Probably! Come join the Cheap Chaps on yet another walkabout episode that quickly strays from the path.

    Ep 262: Grumpy Sessions: The Cream Of Acting

    Ep 262: Grumpy Sessions: The Cream Of Acting

    It's our final show for 2021, but we are going out with something a little bit special. Something a little bit different. This week, Paul & Eli take a look back on the life, the work and the ice cream of everyone's favourite actor, Grumpy Sessions. Over the course of this deeply heart-warming episode, you will hear from the man himself, reflecting on his career and his body of work. You'll also hear from some of those people most close to him throughout his life. Their anecdotes will delight and inspire us all. They'll also be a few opportunities to hear clips from some of Grumpy's most treasured roles! This Christmas (or whatever), join CheapShow for a fascinating and moving portrait of one of Britain's best kept secrets... Mr Grumpy Sessions.

    The Cream of Acting!

    Ep 261: The 3rd Annual Office Christmas Party

    Ep 261: The 3rd Annual Office Christmas Party

    Another year gone, another Christmas is on it's way and unfortunately that means it's time for another drunken, angry CheapShow Office Party. As the booze flows, Paul and Eli attempt to bring some Yuletide cheer to economy comedy podcast in the only way they know how... badly! Paul makes a tonne of effort and Eli manages to do less than nothing and that makes Paul turn to the bottle. They break open some budget Xmas Crackers, sample some inexpensive booze, cheap festive eats and manage to ruin several well-loved Christmas songs by giving them a CheapShow update. You have been warned. For the grand finale, Paul has curated a very special "Price of Shite" for Eli to tackle. If Eli is successful, there is a very special prize indeed! But just when the office party was starting to become a more heart-warming experience, Paul simply had to answer his phone... And it all ends rather badly! If you can survive this Xmas party, you can survive any of them! Merry Christmas!

    Ep 260: Swear Tennis

    Ep 260: Swear Tennis

    All the plans are thrown out of the window this week when the planned "walkabout" episode is postponed because Paul can't "walk about". As a result, the Cheap Chaps have thrown together a makeshift episode that we hope brings you some pleasure. Unlike Paul's back. With Paul in pain and Eli in charge, it's going to get pretty messy. The CheapShow email inbox reveals a new Tales from the Shop Floor, a strange and dangerous story... which sadly devolves into trying to define what "shotgunning" a toilet really means. Meanwhile, two very familiar voices pop up when it's time to play "Off Brand/Brand Off", but what's been going on with our two favourite fugitives? OH! Paul also got a TENS machine to help ease his agony, but will he entrust its power to Eli? You're going to have to listen to find out!

The Girl Named Sig ,

The perfect niche

I’m upset I didn’t find this sooner because it perfectly encapsulates all my weird niche special interests. The only thing that would make this better is more pop talk! The only complaint I have is that Eli didn’t know who Eddie Vedder is :(.

Tom Ellis (not that one) ,

So disgusting it made me sick!

Spoff. Giving ‘hand pleasure’ to the homeless. Vulgar language. Homoerotic undertones. If this is what you call entertainment then this podcast could be for you. Oh and rubbish one joke “characters”… I really don’t know how they’ve been going for 263 episodes! Also the little one looks like a hobbit and probably smells like wee…

Cocomaan ,

Goofy degeneracy

These two are absolutely hilarious, from treasure hunts to cheap goods to general BSing, love the humor and stupidity.
