The Absolute Peach
Summary: The Absolute Peach is a real, gimmick-free talk show, produced weekly in England. Relaxed, funny and without scripts, The Absolute Peach is for people looking for a show that doesnâ€™t rely on wacky skits and annoying jingles. The Absolute Peach was created when hosts Ben and Joe became so sick of the cheesy, spoon-fed humour of so many podcasts loitering around the internet at the moment that they decided to start recording their own. The humour of the show is based on just the sort of things people laugh about with their friends, which, we reckon, tends to be the funniest kind anyway.
Ben and Joe have been fishing. How do you think that worked out? Well, in this show we let you know. We also hear about a man who literally ran into trouble, and talk about our upcoming cycling trip.
Happy Friday! This week we delve a little further into Ben's dark past as he recounts his teenage years in internet chatrooms, and the mechanics of chat-based comedy. Luckily it's not all geek, since a listener email forces him to make some tricky decisions. There's also Chav Watch, and a warning about the dangers of listening to the show whilst exercising.
Ben's discovered he has a problem, and this week he shares it with you. We also talk about the games we played as kids, and critique what might be the strangest furniture store advert ever.
This show we get a little more personal and talk about our characters, and how we're percieved by our listeners. There's also Chav Watch, arguments about the wireless, and we hear about a man with birds in his trousers.
We're back for our second show of the week! We hear about a woman who feeds her babies McDonald's, respond to some emails, and talk about some of the awesome fan art we've been sent recently. There's even a delicious new recipe from Joe Cuisine. And somewhere in there is some talk about clowns, and also some about Cretmeisters. Confused? Fire up the show!
Last week we took a week off, because Joe was skulking around theme parks with scant regard for the show. That's right, scant. But now we're back with this surprise Wednesday show to make your midweek special.
The reason for our out-of-sorts show intro is that Joe had taken it upon himself to get involved in the production of the show. It won't happen again. An actor, a flasher and a candlestick maker are just some of the treats we have lined up for you this week. OK, that last one was made up. Enjoy the show.
In this varied show, we hear about Joe's recent street fighting experience, talk about movies and criminals, and end up struggling to comprehend the latest snivelling apology from the BBC.
Ben's ill, and isn't quite himself. Despite this, we still bring you a show. This week, we talk about Joe's brain, hamburgers, and The Apprentice.
Just from the title, you know this show is going to be good. Joe has possibly the most ludicrous squirrel news ever, we hear about a would-be shelf stacker action hero, and Ben reports on the results of last week's "normality challenge".
Crackly Pop Rocks are fun to eat on the mic, but we balance things out with some serious talk on pigs, and why our very own Jamie Oliver is coming under fire for not telling the world to become vegetarian. Also, Joe shares his dreams of farming, and how he has reinvented himself as 'Orlando Jo'.
Sometimes you just have to sit down and talk it out. This show is all about getting some serious Ben and Joe time. Ok, it's also a bit about squirrels, but mainly it's about close friendships between two men, and if it can get "too close for comfort", as Ben sometimes says. You will love this show.
It's always awkward when you're given a gift that's awesome, and you reciprocate with, well, crap. At least not everyone in the world knows about it. Oh wait. Speaking of crap, Ben reports back on a less than satisfactory dinner experience, and Joe shares a sob story from his visit to capital city.
This week we hear the latest in our romance scam saga, find out how to win ourselves a toddler, and there's brand new Joe Cuisine. Plus, Joe shares his history with Thai Brides.
Happy Pancake Friday! This week Ben and Joe argue about drink choices, forbidden words, and an email to Ben reveals that Joe's not the only one the ladies love.
