#12: The Episode with a Live Studio Audience and Noah’s Recurring “Sexy Voice”

10/30/2018
More
We thought we’d close Season 1 with a bang and brought you our second live recording with a What’s The Mate favourite, GLB! Nicole Ratjien, Noah Telson and Josh Telson joined Julia again, this time in front of a packed house at Comedy Café Berlin. A story about how someone’s ‘dead’ body ended up on cigarette packets all over Europe had our improvisors dive into agency/client contracts and the tale of the very real Ketchup Bandits inspired bizarre scenes of a sauce testing lair and gravy in...

#11: The Episode with Charades Fight Club and Elbow Skin Grafts

10/23/2018
More
Another week, another episode! This week we are joined by Amanda King, Marisa Llamas and Steindór Jónsson who treated us to some brilliantly funny and at times utterly terrifying Improv. In this episode we discover that Steindór's bicycle repairman has a rather outlandish connection to the Swedish Pop group, Ace of Base, Julia's frustration with her regular DHL man inspired the creation of the world's first Charades Fight Club and there may be more than one reference to the grafting of human...

#10: The Episode with All The Vaginas & Crayfish in Tiergarten

10/16/2018
More
Sara Nere, Janina Rook and Caroline Clifford of CǓNT HåmmɆr, join us for another brilliant episode of What’s The Mate! Our three improvisors unpacked how some of the week’s Berlin stories could have gone and blessed us with some truly hilarious improv. We explored a world where STD symptoms come in the form of Enya, Queen or Elton John songs & new recruits go to Aldi Supermarket Clerk Training Camp. We even weighed in on the rather bizarre and completely questionable effect that the...

#9: The Episode with all the Unsponsored Coca-Cola References & Terrifying Swans

10/9/2018
More
This week we are joined by the brilliantly funny Antonia Bär, Andrea Andrésdottir and Carl Clancy. The three of them ran with our Berlin stories and gave new meaning to a "bone chilling" Berlin winter, treated us to the hilarious world of incompetent bicycle lane painters and shared the terrifying lengths some improvisors go to, to get into character. As always, this episode is brought to you by Bear Radio, with support from the kind people of The Venue Berlin and a big thank you must go to...

#8: The Episode with a Whiskey Drinking Hippopotamus & Kevin’s Terrible Cycling

10/2/2018
More
Improvisors, Jakob Wagner, Kevin Napier and Emma Aldridge join us in studio for another brilliant episode of What’s The Mate. This week’s Berlin tales inspired the sad story of Marlene the Tapir who never gets asked to do meet and greets, we discover that Kevin is regularly pulled over by the cops while on his bicycle and Julia’s underage drinking experience inspires a reality where children who do Math are a disgrace to their families. This episode is brought to you by Bear Radio, with...

9/25/2018
More
This week is a biggie as we bring you our first Live Recording! The episode features GRILL TALK, who joined us in front of a packed house at Comedy Café Berlin. Matilde Kaizer, Nacho Sanguinetti and Trevor Silverstein brought the house down with their interpretation of our Berlin stories, taking us to an Ambulance Siren Convention, to a writers room where someone is desperately trying to pitch his MacGyver Origin Story, and they even managed to demonstrate what a bag of dildos falling from...

#6: The Episode with the Berlin Neighbour Manual & a Famous Public Toilet

9/18/2018
More
Skeleton Brains are back! Blake Farha and Daan Henselmans joined us for round two and brought with them another Brain, Henri Parmentier. Together they improvised the not too far-fetched world of dealing with one's neighbours, Julia's questionable Döner Kebab Speakeasy theory and oh there's also one about drug smuggling apple trees, you're going to have to give this episode a listen to fully understand that one. This episode is brought to you by Bear Radio, with support from the kind people...

#5: The Episode with Sensitive BVG Employees & Aunty Carrey's Amazing Butt

9/11/2018
More
From Berlin with Love come Amanda King, Kieran Humphries and Deschna Afram of Schön Connery! The troupe join us this week as we unpack how some of Julia’s stranger Berlin experiences could have gone. Their scenes got into the story of a dad who has questionable taste in bedtime stories, an Ariana Grande lookalike who avoided paying a fine on the U-Bahn and a tourist who gambled with a cat at the East Side Gallery - standard stuff. This episode is brought to you by Bear Radio. Big thanks to...

#4: The Episode with Heavy-Handed Doctors & Poops On The Landing

9/4/2018
More
This week we are joined by the brilliantly funny Nicole Ratjien, Noah Telson and Josh Telson of GLB! The GLB three run with our Berlin stories and give us a look into the world of a woman who has to choose between wearing napkins or her granny’s crochet work to a wedding, the “Scheiße Police” making house calls and the BVG getting a kick out of toying with the tourists of Berlin. As always, this episode is brought to you by Bear Radio, with support from the kind people of The Venue Berlin...

#3: The Episode with Fabergé Eggs & Boring Josh Watching Boring TV

8/28/2018
More
Comedy Café Berlin veterans, Michele (with one ‘L’) Guido, Josh (with powers) Telson and Peter (just Peter) Talbot, spill the tea on this week’s episode of What’s The Mate. Our bizarre Berlin sagas spark scenes of a lonely pensioner who is all too happy to part with her vintage soda cans and Ming vase, a Mauer Park stall where buying a pile of DDR garbage for €30 will make you cool and the absurd tale of Lord Yellowflower and Lord Hazelmorning who take each other on in a real jousting...

#2: The Episode with Terrible French Accents and The Berlin Techno Scene

8/24/2018
More
Improvisors, Carl Clancy and Jakob Wagner of People System as well as Kevin Napier step into studio for a side-splitting episode of What’s The Mate. This week’s Berlin tales inspired our guests to take us to the previously unheard of Berlin Police Department Literature Creation Department (really rolls of the tongue doesn’t it), we meet a 10 year old who can help you get into Berghain and Wolfgang the waiter does his best to prove that his French accent is authentic - take your eggs benedict...

#1: The Episode with No Name & Daan as a Dog

8/21/2018
More
Blake Farha, Daan Henselmans and Gaston Stabiszewski of Skeleton Brains, join us for the inaugural episode of What’s The Mate - an Improv Comedy Podcast for the world, by Berliners! This week’s Berlin stories inspired scenes about thieving dancers on La Rambla, a high school student who converses with a brown-nosing pooch and we end things off with a hilarious look into the dark future of trashy humans (apparently that’s all of us, even the ones who pay their taxes and help lost children)....
