21. Alan McElroy: Snatch Closing & Free Parking

King of Pub Quizzes and blagging, Alan McElroy is in the Laundry this week before he shoots off back to Ireland to take on the UK.

He shares his tips for comedy and for living life and seeing as how he’s leaving the country he’s using the pod cast as a confessional for all the ways he’s hustled this fine south pacific country whilst he was here.

We recorded this on the day that it was announced that the Legendary New Zealand open mic gig – Snatch Comedy – is stopping for good. So we blow a bit of smoke up it’s arse one last time. Which also fits in pretty well to a bit of an announcement for Attempted Comedians.

Jamaine Ross (of The Issues Podcast & 2 and a Half Count Podcast) has been on the TV and he makes it too! He Talks about what he does to prepare for being on ‘7 Days’ (NZ comedy Panel Show) and writing for and editing ‘Jono & Ben’ (We can’t quite figure out what that is).

We cover his sketch comedy trio ‘Frickin’ Dangerous Bro’, learning from those a couple steps ahead of you, and then we get onto the Pro Wrestling… and boy do we get into it.

Dave make a few goofs and Scott get’s racist.

17. Matt Stellingwerf: Crowd-work & Egg Cartons

Pull up a cushion and sit at the feet of 2 Time Billy T Award Nominee (and possible 2016 Billy T award winner) Matt Stellingwerf, as he dishes out sage comedy advice from his old leather recliner.

Matt joins Scott and Dave this week and we get stuck into some straight up advice and tips and Matt gets deep into how he’s gotten so good at crowd work.

But before that we hit on some hard hitting topics, like the Egg Carton award and how many times Guy Montgomery has masterbated this year.

16. Pan Faces & Sticking Around (feat. James Keating)

This week we’ve a got New Zealand’s number one Deadpan liner Comedian, James Keating with us in the Laundry.

We get into what got him into Stand up comedy and how close he came to being a politician instead. We also get in his comedy dreams and plans for the future.

This week, Dave coins an entire comedy genre and ends last weeks cliff hanger by boring us with his childhood dream.

15. Farts & Comedy Lab

What happens when you get a couple of over tired hosts, add some V energy drink and a cup of wine?

You get gold I tell ya!

Things start off with some good old fashioned fart chat, then the guys recount their experience at ‘Comedy Lab’ night where the audience gives the comics feedback.

Maybe things get a little weird. Maybe dreams start being discussed. Maybe Scott blanks out for a little while. But that all makes for good listening! Right?.

14. First Timers & Ukeleles (feat. Maxwell Apse)

Word of advice for anyone trying stand up for the first time:
Don’t record it and Put it on the internet!

That being said, our guest this week is someone who did just that, for Science! And self improvement.

We chat to the charming actor / podcaster / comedian?? and he tells us why he recorded his first two open mic sets and put them on the internet for the world to see.

And do you know what? He’s funny dude.

Will he give stand up a real go?
