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.
Ever noticed how racism is just like a bad movie? No, neither have we. The main topics covered in this week's show could hardly be more different. Yet TAP weaves them into one show so expertly, you'll barely notice the seams. Plus: you love intro songs, and this week we've got not one, but two just for you. We're awesome.
We're back from an unannounced week off and Joe gets the blame. We pay tribute to our American cousins and Ben tells of his most stressful and hideously awkward moments of recent times.
As shows go, this one's awesome. And by awesome we mean awful. And by that we mean it's fairly average. You decide. And it's late. Maybe TAP got lazy? Lazy, lazy TAP. Enjoy the show.
Have you ever seen a man who was so white and thin that you thought he was a ghost of some sort? Ben has...but it wasn't a ghost, it was an emo buying his lunch. Our thoughts on this strange man and some geeks too. Brilliant.
Sometimes you just have to be a man. Sometimes you have to swallow your pride, look somebody right in the eye, and say 'I'm sorry'. Ben's a real man, and this show he proves it. Joe meanwhile, is more interested in the rate at which his fruit decomposes.
Ben and Joe have been ill all week and are still feeling rough. Luckily, a surprise arrives to cheer them up. We also talk about daytime TV, words that don't get used anymore, and it's a bumper week for Chav Watch and Map of Shame.
What's the first rule of Intro Club? What's up with pilots these days? And why are all Joe's stories about Bulls recently? We also discuss the wonderful diversity of accents used in our fine country, and Ben tells of how he was accosted by a 12-year-old.
Do you feel the power of the Gladiators? No? Neither do we. Gladiators these days are too soft, with their lycra and padded pugils. We discuss an idea for a new twist on the Gladiators formula, and also get into some cheese talk. Between Gladiators and cheese, this show has something for everyone.
There's nothing quite like blind optimism, and there's plenty in this week's show. We cover the latest poor fools whose bad ideas landed them in international humiliation. Plus, no episode would be complete without Joe trying something and Ben sabotaging it.
This show we talk about Mexico's dubious legal practices, shooting each other, and how you can get prosecuted for staring. There's also your emails and a story about an arrogant pilot.
We've all met them. Those people who just want to sniff around the tables of others, hoping that some scraps will fall onto their heads, metaphorically speaking. As it turns out, Joe used to know someone who did literally that, literally speaking. Plus we talk about an exciting new form of surgery.
We're back! Series 3 promises to be the biggest series yet for The Absolute Peach and we're kicking things off with a cracker, I mean pie, err, croissant... just listen to the show. Enjoy!
