Festive Special 2018

Lazy Susan and Adam Hess are the helpers helping Santa's little helpers (Tom and Ben) in this year's blockbuster Festive Flatshare Slamdown. As with any Xmas special, expect Carol Singers, Santa, Panto, True Stories, Advocaat (of course) and quickfire answers with a 'vague assonance' (TM) to the 12 days of Christmas! Want to give us an Xmas gift? Why not slip some money into our stockings? You can do so at (try not to picture us dancing for you in stockings as you do...


Series 8, Episode 7 (Change The Fuse)

Rachel Parris and Sean McLoughlin are the houseguests for a return to the LaughOutLondon Festival featuring Tom almost asphyxiating himself beatboxing, Sean getting very angry about Money and Minerals, Rachel delivering the most impressive Beef Brothers sneeze-based prosecution ever, Matthew calling an audience member a 'bit of a piece' and Ben failing to clear a very, very, very low bar when it comes to explaining why he can't do the chore. We are eternally grateful to all the #flatslammers...


Series 8, Episode 6 (Creosote The Fence)

Jess Robinson and Caroline Mabey join Pappy's for rather an experimental show which features not only props but two Beef Brothers complainants. Also within you'll find... Caroline inventing a new and very popular word, Jess flirting Clarky into submission, Tom making notes about pants and Matthew palpably wishing we'd made a couple of the rounds a little less complicated. We are super grateful to everyone who has thrown a bit of money at the show. If you'd like to join these legends you can...


Series 8, Episode 5 (Fix The Leaky Tap)

Will Adamsdale and Annie McGrath join Pappy's for a fun show in which you'll learn... which panelist has the most unread emails, what Ben knows about Hans Christian Anderson, what Will knows about lawn mowers, why Annie thinks a cat should be put down, how Matthew is a true professional when all around him are misbehaving and whether one of the rambliest appearances by Fanshaw Standon ever is enough to win the case... If you'd like to DONATE to the podcast we'd be very grateful indeed. You...


Series 8, Episode 4 (Book the Hostel)

Anna Mann and Lou Sanders are the houseguests as Pappy's return to the glorious Mach Comedy Festival for a noisy and fun-filled flatslam. Featuring out of tune singing, high intensity sound effects, an awful lot of candles and an unusually tuneful quickfire round. Vast gratitude to anyone and everyone who has chucked a few coins into the flatslam bucket. If you'd like to throw some cyber-cash at us, you can do so at And of course, you can always help us by somehow...


Series 8, Episode 3 (Hang the Picture)

Ellie Taylor and Pierre Novellie join Pappy's for a fun-packed flatslam which sees the panel playing Catchphrase with words, debating whether a new baby is necessarily a new tenant and getting out their rage via the medium of rap/rock crossover. Thanks hugely for your continued support of the show. Special thanks to everyone who has donated money to the cause - if you'd like to join them you can do so here: Additionally/Alternatively please do evangelise about...


Series 8, Episode 2 (Return the VHS to Blockbuster)

Grainne Maguire and Kerry Godliman join Pappy's for a nineties-tastic rampage through short films, Queen songs, whispering and a suspicious belch. Within the episode we learn that Grainne only knows one type of amphibian, Kerry is very very very competitive, Ben knows whether he's coming or going, Tom can't pronounce plaid and Matthew can. Thanks for your continued support for the show. As Tom says in the intro 'without your ears we would just be some kind of computer program'. Huge thanks...


Series 8, Episode 1 (Drive The Campervan)

Kiri Pritchard-McLean, Nish Kumar and Josh Widdicombe are the triple threat of guests to join Pappy's in this first episode of Series 8 - recorded at the wonderful 2017 Machynlleth Comedy Festival. Why three guests you ask? Good question, but they blend like the grape varieties in a fine Bordeaux for a hugely fun show featuring wine, donkeys, orgasm chests, art, someone nearly being sick (TW!) and cameos from Josie Long and Mach Fest head honcho Henry Widdicombe. Mach Fest is a truly...


Festive Special 2017

Christmas Special 2017 It's Chriiiistmaaaaaaaaaas! ...and Elis James and Andy Zaltzman are the gifts that keep on giving in this typically, nay, traditionally shambolic and festive episode, stuffed (like a badly prepared turkey) with anger, carol singing, accordion music, Advocaat, Gold, Frankincense and a chainsaw. Want to give us an Xmas gift? Some people think that giving cold hard cash as a Christmas present is a bit of a faux pas. Luckily, we don't think that at all, so if you want to...


Series 7, Episode 6 (Clean The Fridge)

Aisling Bea and Steve Hall are Pappy's housemates for a special episode recorded at the 2017 Latitude Festival. As well as battling it out to see who has to clean the fridge, the teams look forward to Fleet Foxes and discuss the relative merits of Mumford & Sons and their takeover of the festival main stage under the guise of 'Gentlemen Of The Road'. Also... making hot things cold, a Roonerism Spound and a sexy, noisy Beef Brothers. Oooh yes, I like that! Technically this is the October...


Series 7, Episode 5 (Lay The Table)

Rose Matafeo and John Robins join Pappy's for a bumper episode - so bumper in fact that it is arriving at your ears more than a month late! Sorry! It's many attractions include impromptu Bill Withers singing, Rose drawing a blanc, John eulogising about Marie Rose sauce, Matthew threatening to call the whole show off if people don't behave, Ben misbehaving and Beef Brothers getting a little bit too 'real' for Tom. Huge thanks to everyone who has donated money to Flatshare Slamdown - it is...


Series 7, Episode 4 (Stained Carpet)

Josh Widdicombe and Joe Wilkinson are Pappy's guests in a show recorded in June 2015 which Producer Ben has been psyching himself up to edit ever since. It features the first ever live Quickfire Round jingle, a couple of good games and a vat full of white wine. Also watch out for evolutionary biologist Simon Watt making an impromptu appearance as a cricket-style 'runner', assisting one of the teams when the official house guest becomes somewhat debilitated! Simon was at the recording having...


Series 7, Episode 3 (Sweep The Chimney)

Series 7, Episode 3 (Sweep The Chimney) Beattie Edmondson and Richard Herring are Pappy's house guests and Isy Suttie makes a special guest appearance in a show recorded in May 2016 that features some of the longest and most drawn out rounds we've ever devised! But fun nonetheless with knives, jugs, catchphrases and at least once threatened punch. If you're a fan of the show and would like to bung us a few quid for this episode and the many others we've spewed out in the past, you can do so...


Series 7, Episode 2 (Clear Out The Attic)

Roisin Conaty and Joel Dommett are Pappy's house guests in a show that features high singing, confusing listing, one testicle and Matthew having a breakdown. And, as you'll hear in the podcast, we've now set up the means for listeners to bung us a few quid if they enjoy this episode and the many others we've spewed out in the past - you can find out more about that here: Of course, your help spreading the word about this episode and the show in general is also...


Series 7, Episode 1 (Bleed The Radiators)

Tom Allen and Phil Wang join Pappy's in the first episode of the new series! Keen eared listeners will spot a few refinements, additions and omissions to the classic #flatslam format... ...not really! It's the same old gubbins, lovingly packaged this time round into a convoluted radiator-themed flat-centric argument. Within you will find really hot rapping, hard-hitting moral lessons, a toilet-based beef and high scoring agogo. As it is a new series, your help spreading the word to the...


Bonus Holding Alt Special 3

Here's the final 'special' episode made out of live show intros to recordings of Flatshare Slamdown from the last series (the fun bits before the podcast itself starts). Brace yourself to hear about various types of fake egg, the glamour of photocopiers, Fanshaw attempting to crack his own version of S-Town, Achilles, inverse Mum slams and potatoes. Alongside Pappy's you'll enjoy the dulcet tones of Kevin Eldon, Ed Gamble, Eleanor Tiernan and Lloyd Langford. We're back with a new series next...


Bonus Holding Alt Special 2

Here's another special episode culled from the best chunks of live gig introductions which preceded the Flatshare Slamdown recordings of the last series. Within it you'll find plenty of Pappy's and cameo appearances from Liam Williams, Barry from Watford, Nish Kumar and John Robins. You'll also find lots of beef, loads of gibberish and an exhaust pipe. Do please spread the word about the show and/or even stick a nice review of it somewhere? iTunes maybe. Or on your Facebook wall. Or any wall...


Bonus Holding Alt Special 1

With a new series on the not-too-distant horizon, here's the first of three special episodes made up of the best bits from the live gig introductions which precede Flatshare Slamdown recordings. Within it you'll find Pappy's (of course) and cameo appearances from Lou Sanders, Stuart Goldsmith, Danny Wallace and Felicity Ward. You'll also find beefs-a-plenty, a viscous torrent of innuendo, a glass being smashed, Lynx Africa, Greg Wallace, guns being mistaken for eggs and a foreskin mystery....


Festive Special 2016

Ho Ho Ho! Eleanor Tiernan and Lloyd Langford are Pappy's little helpers for this very merry festive special. It's crammed full with yuletide goodies, including... Clare Balding, geese, the Irish Times, a shelf, Naughty Peter, robins, 'tree flips' and Advocaat! If you want to give us a Christmas present, then what we'd love is the gift of exposure. Help us spread the word about the show: gift it to a friend, secret-santa it to your entire following on social media... or why not make a loved...


Series 6, Episode 12 (Pay The Hotel Bill)

Mike Bubbins and Joe Lycett join Pappy's at the wonderful Machynlleth Comedy Festival in a show featuring bones, rap, babies, a violin, Trump, Schindler's List and a Greek dance. This show would be very relevant to anyone who has ever stayed in, seen or heard of a hotel or bed and breakfast, so please be sure to tell them about it through all the usual channels.
