The podcast the streets will never forget.

Since launching in 2020, the Football Clichés podcast has been on a relentless search for the true meaning of football.

Why do we talk about it the way we do? Just how big is a "pocket" of space? What's the least impressive thing that football could consider "a classy touch"? Which is worse: a "carthorse" or a "donkey"? How many errors constitute "a comedy of errors"? What's the worst football action scene in cinema history? What's the most "kit launch" pose a footballer can strike?

After 2022's sold-out tour of the UK and Ireland, the Clichés pod is going back on the road with it’s unique angle on the modern game.
Join the Adjudication Panel of Adam Hurrey, Charlie Eccleshare and David Walker for the most pedantic footballing night of all time.

May also feature an appearance from a Tory Minister - if Matt can afford his daily rate…

Life is a stress: full of rushed breakfasts, angry people, internal conflict, and Jacob Rees-Mogg. But what happens when everything you thought was important – your problems, grievances against others, your very identity – simply disappears?

Multi-award-winning and trail-blazing comedian, Paul Foot, is back on tour with Dissolve, his most personal, surprising and ground-breaking show ever.

In the year 2022 AD something momentous changed for Paul, and in this show he will reveal how he discovered the secret of life on the outskirts of Lancaster.* Inevitably he does get distracted by King Tutankhamun, the House of Lords, Sir Cliff Richard, officious lollipop ladies and what Jesus might have achieved if he’d been a plumber.

As seen on ‘Would I Lie To You?’, ‘Never Mind the Buzzcocks’ and ‘8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown’.

‘Funnier and more daring than I’ve ever seen him... [has] the audience laughing so hard they’re about to leave their bodies’ ★★★★★ Chortle

*To be clear, Paul discovered the secret of life while he was located on the outskirts of Lancaster. Not the secret to living on the outskirts of Lancaster. There isn’t an answer to that.

Multi award winning comedian Ray Bradshaw is forever being told “you look just like my mate…” where ever he goes. It’s been happening for years and he’s worried about it. Either someone is cloning generic bald men or, there’s a ginger bearded bald man out there who’s doing a bad job of stalking Ray. In his brand-new show Doppelginger, Ray is going to use the latest in genetic research (the internet) to try and put an end to this once and for all. He’s on a quest to find the person who looks most like him.

Doppelginger is a funny heartwarming comedy show about a silly search for a man with an orange beard who’s follicly challenged. If you have a bald, ginger bearded friend in their 30s (true at time of writing), then bring them along. You never know – they could be The One.

Ray’s last show Deaf Com One was a huge success and sold-out theatres across the world. The show was all about growing up with deaf parents and as a result every show of Doppelginger will have a BSL interpreter. Ray has previously supported John Bishop on his UK arena tour after John described him as ‘one of the best comedians in the country’.

The irrepressible Lucy Porter bounces back into action with a show all about regrets. Frank Sinatra had too few to mention, but Lucy’s got hundreds, and she’s prepared to go into graphic detail about all of them.

Disastrous dates, professional calamities, ruined friendships and parenting fails, Lucy describes all the mistakes she’s made, works out why they happened, and ponders how her life would have turned out if she’d acted differently.
Lucy looks at the things we might all collectively regret - not sticking to the work-life balance we strove for during lockdown, not realising that clapping for the NHS wouldn’t be enough to save it, allowing people we thought were quite fun on TV to become politicians.

How does regret tie in with guilt and shame? As a middle-aged, middle-class, left-leaning ex-Catholic, guilt is one of Lucy’s top five hobbies (along with going to the garden centre, doing jigsaws, making bread and watching subtitled foreign dramas on Netflix. She’s also ashamed of all these hobbies.)

It’s not all negative though. If you regret something, you can use it to change your ways: see the thing you regret as your rock bottom, and let it spur you on to become a better person. Lucy looks at how she can use shameful or annoying things from her past to change her future.

Lucy regrets volunteering at the school fete when her kids were younger, because now she’s committed to being the Hook a Duck Lady twice a year for the rest of her life. Maybe she could learn to say No a bit more?
