Ep 50: The Big Fat Power Bottom Epic Special Deluxe

This is it! This is the big one! Our BIGGEST one yet! To celebrate somehow reaching episode 50, we have gone big AND we've gone home. Back to the House of Pickles to record this mammoth pointless milestone of an episode! We are joined on this special occasion by two very special guests. Ash Frith comes out from behind a phone line to join us face to face and he is accompanied by Richard Sandling, who was there at the very beginning when CheapShow was stupidly called The Uncliqueables. So how...

Ep 49: Bum Eggs

Paul & Eli tackle more delightful and demented charity shop finds in an episode carefully entitled "Bum Eggs". Why? Well, why not find out? It's a bumper edition of the show to tide you over until the forthcoming "epic" 50th edition and the cheap chaps cram in lots of the usual features. Eli fields a new batch of noodle questions, much to Paul's annoyance... Can you tell the difference between brand and off brand snacks? Eli takes on the challenge to see if Aldi's range of bubbly chocolate...

Ep 48: House of Pickles 4

It's time for a minisode, live from the House of Pickles! And this episode? Well, it's hardly bloody mini! We spoil you. In this loose and lively podcast, Paul & Eli take questions from the audience with the #askcheapshow hashtag thing. The questions are odd and the replies are just as shady. Also, for the first time, we speak to the first of our Patreon Donors who paid the top tier. As a result Steven Feary get the "honour" of being a small part of the show... Wanna be a guest on The...

Ep 47: Paul Gannon's FrothShop

Important Note: In this episode we accidentally give out some actual proper advice! We apologise wholeheartedly and promise never to knowingly do it again! With that out of the way, why not enjoy another hour of cheap tat, cheap tunes and cheap laughs. In this episode, Eli rummages through more of his weird and wonderful vinyl... Paul tries and fails to create a new exciting feature for Cinefiles... Gannon also looks into a collection of off brand candy AS WELL as knockoff BeanBoozled...

Ep 46: That's Life!

It's cheap gossip magazine time and, as it turns out, there is not too much humour you can derive from articles about domestic violence, harrowing illness and personality quizzes... and it doesn't help that Paul has just discovered a wacky sound effect app for his phone that he hopes will lighten the tone somewhat. He is wrong. Eli, in turn, brings the food for another delightful Cheap Eats segment. Despite the usual collection of bargain foodstuffs, the cheap chaps finally get their hands...

Ep 45: Live & Unleashed and Too Bloody Early

It's May so it must be another MCM Live Show on the Vidfest Stage... But never one this early!! 11.30am? As a result, this show is a little more, shall we say, "loose"? Either way, you can look forward to the usual rants and raves from Eli & Paul. Ash Frith delivers more astounded commentary and we are (eventually) joined by comedian and actor Tom Bell, who basically walks into an early morning car crash of a podcast. He ends up being brilliant anyway! In this episode, we tackle... The...

Ep 44: Cheeky Crackheads & Filthy Mansions

Ever wondered how to lure a crackhead back to your house? Ever been curious as to who owned the dirtiest, weirdest millionaires mansion? Ever had a violently strong opinion on Iceberg Lettuce? Ever wanted to know Eli's favourite physical sensations? Do you think Paul can go a whole show without a wank joke? If any of those thoughts have ever bounced around your head, this podcast will not so much as answer them, but exploit them horrendously for personal gain! It's another podcast filled...

Ep 43: Sexy Eurovision Contest

It's boom bang-a-bang time as Paul, Eli and random co-host Ash Frith dive into the world of The Eurovision Song Contest in this Europop special. The chaps pick through some of the best and worst songs from the decades old songwriting crapfest to present the tracks that tickle their interest, from meta-music electro-pop all the way to singing turkeys! So join them as they wave a flag, debate some musical debacles and give "Nil Points" to this yearly musical contest. WARNING: It gets...

Ep 42: Friendship Time

It's a good old fashioned, back to basics, episode! Just Paul and Eli chatting, shouting and occasionally finding common ground. In episode 42, find out what happens when Paul suggests a new "friendly" feature with the exchanging of gifts! Eli brings back some (not so) delightful snacks from America and he also delivers some choice and not at all annoying Tales from the Dance Floor. Finally, we dive head first into our latest vinyl discoveries. There is a whole host of odd tunes to hear,...

Ep 41: Live @ The Bill Murray with Ashens

Live! From The Bill Murray in London, Paul & Eli present a reasonably special episode of CheapShow with Mr Special Guest himself, Stuart Ashen! In another typically low rent, omnishambles episode, the Cheap Chaps deliver a solid collection of bric-a-brac, lousy tat and grimy snacks! Eli gets dissed by Paul in an epic slamdown... if only the music cue worked! The audience foist some lovely presents upon the hosts. Stuart regrets every minute and Paul and Eli have quite a few "falling outs"!...

Ep 34: Mr Biscuits

Who is Mr Biscuits and how could he help you save money? Frankly, no one really knows, especially Paul & Eli in yet another ruddy fun CheapShow. In episode 34 CheapShow tackles bad accents. Again.

Ep 32: Silent Night Soil

Silent Night Soil. Holy Night Soil. All is calm. All is shite. There is nothing special about this "so called" Christmas Special. No magical stories. No high production values. No musical interludes. It's just Paul, Eli and some utter pointless crap. Some of it happens to be Christmas related, but don't get too excited. It's basically a regular episode. We also hear about some of history's biggest failures. The CheapShow boys only missed being on the list of failures due to the fact that...
