Moving Wood, Silent Dave Johns, and Confident Squirrels
Show broadcast on 14 January 2017
HUGE Winner Plays On news this week - my word it's tense - plus Dave's Mancunian dream (nightmare?) and an insight into the comedic genius that is Elis James. Plus Shaggy trivia and John sort of invents an innuendo. As well as all that there's the usual stuff - Humble Brag Of The Week (it's an absolute hammer this week), Email Of The Species, the Laid-Back Paper Review and the Keep It Session Sessions.
Somehow, the topic comes up of how Noel Edmonds bought and licensed a taxi and drives it with a female mannequin in the passenger seat.
John's introduction of Elis
"To my left is owner-operator of Wales' only current coal mine, located in his parents' garden..."
Conversations and riffs
Elis has been busy moving wood. John: "I've got wood of my own to move, mate... That's not a tawdry reference to single life."
"Your car horn should only be used for two things: making other road users aware of your presence and when you make a great joke while driving." (John)
Prod Dave had a northern dream that Liam Gallagher had been killed by Bez.
John re-visits some select excerpts from Elis' recent appearance on The Comedians' Comedian Podcast, much to Elis' chagrin.
Winner Plays On
Elis and John face off in the weekly quiz on topics of their choice.
Final ever WPO: John Barnes (Elis) v The Gin Craze (John).
Amazingly, the number of points is 372.5 each going into the final round (number of questions answered correctly). It is so tense the lads have taken their tops off.
John wins 5-1, and wins the competition overall. 377.5-373.5.
