Best Episodes of The Dave Weekly

It's the end of the series and we've got a delightfully smutty episode by way of an ear-tickling climax. Presenter Ben meets the towering talent that is Greg Davies, fresh off his new sitcom Man Down, and unveils an unlikely sexual fantasy fan
If you're looking for happiness, look no further; Gyles Brandreth has the answer and it's yours for the price of a ticket or a book (he's fine with either). He's also had a rather interesting life from author and politician to comedian and acto
Freewheeling comedian Ross Noble is anything but linear. Even the most straightforward conversation takes a turn for the surreal. He's an absolute joy to behold. And what is there to say about Warwick? Hollywood, check. Award winning comedy, ch
It's a weird and wonderful episode for you to feast on this week. Bill Bailey (yes BILL BAILEY!) gives us a lesson on Chinese cuisine and the proper protocol for leberating owls and Andrew Lawrence gives one of the most honest and hilarious acc
Dave Gorman has a brand new TV show and it's bloody brilliant! Yes it's on Dave so we're contractually obliged to say that, but it genuinely is. Not that we talk about that much, a lot of time is spent talking about being Gorman-esque. The one
The legendary Ed Byrne and the Moustachioed maestro Mike Wozniak spent time out of their busy stand up schedules to shoot the breeze with our immaculately dressed host Ben Shires. Among other things they discuss how to build the perfect Comedia

Sam Simmons is back on our shores and he's still talking sh*t, only this time he's doing it to the paying public. We caught up with the Mustacheod mischief maker in a dimly lit Soho theatre basement. Hilarity ensued. And if that wasn't enough,
When faced with the intelligence and comedic prowess of Rory McGrath we thought we'd start the conversation off with something erudite and witty... unfortunately all we could muster was a long conversation about faeces. And to make things worse
Have you heard the one about the Englishman Irishman and Scotsman? Well we're two thirds of the way there... and the Australian is in Scotland so near enough... right? In fact it's not just the Australian that happens to be in Scotland, the Dav
It's the long-awaited Episode 2 of The Dave Weekly! Yes, it's been a whole week. Very much 'The Dark Knight' to Episode 1's 'Batman Begins', here we tackle meatier, weightier themes with presenter Ben Shires, as always, playing the joker. Actre
The Dave Weekly is going A-List... Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Edgar Wright, Charlie Day and Russell Howard. Not wanting to blow our own trumpet, but we're pretty proud of this one. It'll probably be downhill for the series from here but what a way
Yes, it's the third series of our award-winning comedy podcast, starting Thursday 18th July. It's bigger, stronger, faster, sexier and not afraid to take it's shirt off in the park. To kick off with a bang, we've got superstar stand-up Russell
Comedy fans rejoice! Dave has another podcast for you to enjoy. Alex Horne will be joined by some great comedians to discuss the best and worst news stories from the week.
With Alexander Armstrong being such a great guy and one of the wittiest men on TV we thought we'd make a BIG deal out of getting him on the show. We also present the Dave's One Night Stand Award for best comedy venue in the UK... But you'll hav
Oh how we've laughed. Leicester really is a darn funny place to stay, especially during a comedy festival. This week we have three fine comedians of all ages and styles. Paul Foot kills time before catching a train, Tom Rosenthal talks off a ha
We caught up with Alan Davies backstage before his Leicester gig to talk about his latest tour before heading over to Dave's Curry house for the weirdest and most hilarious blind date ever.
The first night proper of Dave's Leicester Comedy Festival and we were in the thick of things. Back stage with the one line maestro Milton Jones, post gig chatting with the WitTank trio and the most surreal discussion we've ever had with Rich F
The Dave Weekly podcast team are heading up to Leicester for 16 days of hilarity for Dave's Leicester Comedy Festival. To kick it all off we'll be talking to Dave Spikey, Pat Cahill, Joel Dommett and Angela Barnes. It has funny written all ove
Over the series we've had some very tough decisions about what goes into each episode and what ends up on the cutting room floor. Inevitably we make some very obvious mistakes. Here are just a few that should have made the grade. Apologies.
A podcast full to the brim of comedy talent: David O'Doherty, Angelos Epithemiou, Tim Key, Alex Horne, Nick Helm, Peacock & Gamble, Rhys Darby, Tim & Eric, Rob Beckett and Last but not least Ronna & Beverley.
It’s the end of another series, the end of another year, and if the Mayans get their way, it may well be the end of the world too by the time you read this. For our last episode we have two great new comedians to get you excited about the new y
The mild mannered Englishman, Humphrey Ker, gives us his side of the story regarding the weird and wonderful world of The Penny Dreadful's slash stories, while Katherine Ryan tries to convince us that she didn't grow up in Narnia.
Award-winning Australian comedian, radio and TV presenter and all round hilarious human being Sam Simmons joins us on the pod this week and if that wasn't enough we also have Joe Lycett returning to what can only be assumed as the new Dave Week
The comedian novelist Russell Kane and comedian sitcom writer Jason Cook join us on the podcast this week to talk about their lives so far. Both of which are heavily influenced by their parents. Coincidence?
