Description

Comedians Elis James and John Robins have captured the hearts and minds of a generation, and it's time those hearts and minds had a book.

Elis and John met in 2005 performing stand-up comedy in a pub called The Yellow Kangaroo in Cardiff. They eyed each other suspiciously before Robins offered the limpest handshake in the history of the world.

'It was a power play,' says Robins. 'I may even have raised it for him to kiss.' 

James expands: 'It was one of the weirdest things I'd ever experienced, but having known John now for over a decade, it was the tip of the iceberg. I can honestly say he's the oddest man I've ever met.'

Little did they know that 10 years later they would be presenting a radio show together that would make them comedy royalty.... Okay, radio comedy royalty... Okay, commercial digital indie radio royalty... But with a podcast! 

Now, The Elis James and John Robins' Show has become cult listening, and that cult has registered for charitable status, published quarterly accounts and been given a full blessing by the Archbishop of Broadcasting. It's official: Elis and John are a religion, and this book is their Holy Vible.

Our obsessions make us what we are, and though you may never have addressed a will to Brian May or cried watching Ronnie O' Sullivan make a 147, you'll have done something similar, and Elis and John are here to tell you that you're not weird, so come on in, and taste the vibe! Or should I say, listen to the vibe!

Ce que les critiques en disent

"Elis and John have created the funniest, most original and hilariously personal radio show of the last decade. Which is quite annoying for people like me who have also been trying to be funny on the radio in that time." (Josh Widdicombe)

Great #content for fans of their existing output

As a PCD, I'm already familiar with the work of these two capable broadcasters. I was worried it might be at too high a level- intended for newcomers to the vibe rather than experienced apologists. Thankfully this is definitely a book for existing fans and there's more detailed nuggets and in-depth looks than would be possible in the format of a radio-based podcast. I have a newfound understanding of what makes them tick which has made me appreciate their quirks and enjoy their podcasts even more.

If you have never listened to Elis and John's podcast before, I'd recommend checking that out first before diving into this. Plus, ya know, they're free. If you already listen to and love their podcasts then definitely go ahead and dive in!

A bit disappointed

Huge fan of these two...retro PCD here. Expected something a little different. Just an alphabetized rehash of stories we've heard over the years. I never buy audiobooks, but did this one with great anticipation. Overall disappointed-11 hours and 43 minutes-laughed out loud once.
Still a fan and the podcast will continue to downloaded every Sunday.
