Some of our most popular comedians have appeared in TV commercials. Jason Goliath, Rob van Vuuren, Laz Gola, and Chris Forrest to name a few. Do clients and directors make use of the comedians’ natural timing? Does utilising comedians help make ads funnier? It’s been a while since an ad on TV or any media really tickled us. So we find out where the funny is hiding in advertising. We speak to Kenneth Sun from Flint Studio, who gives free advice for anybody trying to use humour in an ad. We also just appreciate free media advice for our podcast. Eric takes us down memory lane as he tells us about his favourite funny ads.

This week on #JUSTNOW we have a segment called ‘I see what you did there’. So… Eric tells us about a plane that was stolen from Uncle Charlie’s roof. Someone contacted Breakfast Beer Club to let us know they want to break a beer pong record, they have our undivided attention. So we spoke to Ruth and Hennie from 2 Okes Brewery who will supply beer for the beer pong record. Brandon calls in to tell us about his new Jack Russell.

Sean Stevens and Lihle Msimang join the show. After Sean’s brush with death his bucket list would make anyone proud. Item 1: Start a comedy club and production studio. He also owns a tattoo shop, among other things. He’s sailed halfway around the globe in a pirate ship, has his own radio show, does stand-up, and he can’t swim. Although it’s her first time on the JUSTNOW podcast, Lihle Msimang was a favourite on our previous podcast. An AFDA graduate, Lihle is currently writing and acting in tons of stuff including MTV’s ‘You got Got’. She has a special announcement for us too! DISCLAIMER: Eric’s real dad once f**ked a mermaid. NOTE: Although this was recorded on Star Wars Day (May the 4th), we managed to make zero references to the films.

Welcome to the first JUSTNOW Comedy Podcast, where Jason Goliath is woken up with a massive hangover. But it’s well deserved as they employed more than 60 comedians this weekend on the Goliath Comedy experience. And then we get down to business with Martin Evans to talk about his ‘Manifesto’ of comedy conduct in South Africa. Shoo… a rather mature podcast for some reason.

Nicholas Goliath was in the studio with Gareth so we hijacked him for the our show. It’s always special to have an actual Goliath with us. Alfred Adrian is one of the hardest working comics in the land, and having him explain his day was insightful and a blueprint for every young comedian. And Breakfast Beer Club is back! But the hadedas were the highlights of the show…

Alan’s first words 9 seconds into the show: “This looks like absolute chaos!” But it’s always a pleasure when one of the hardest working comedians in the country agrees to come and play with us. He’s a teacher, actor, director, international stand-up… and he’s in a show running at the Pieter Toerien Theatre called ‘The Play that Goes Wrong’. But the podcast actually went right for a change!

Comedians have a tight connection with sex and we explore the ins and outs of it. Wetting your appetite with Glen who hosted 4 days of live sex last year dressed as Frank N. Furter! This morning we went hard at a marathon 2-hour session, and with these quality guests we could have squeezed in 3!

Names you can’t pronounce. When Nqoba asks you to do a silent comedy show… you invite him to the podcast to explain! Eric pronounced Nqoba’s name correctly, Dave not so much. Richelieu Beaunoir – one of our podcast favourites – popped in to keep us up to date on the Durban beef rumours. And we pulled our chokes out to keep the show idling nicely.

We managed to convince London comedy act Archie Maddox to stay in the studio for a full hour, while some listeners accused him of sounding like a tea-drinking construction worker! Then we get Stuart Taylor out of bed to tell us why we should watch the Big 5 Comedy show at Monte over the Easter weekend. And we ask our 7 listeners to come up with a new name for the podcast!
