Hello folks hello folks this is John here folks. Series 4 of my silly comedy podcast The John Dredge Nothing To Do With Anything Show starts next week and I do hope you might give it a listen, as we’ve been working on this one for several months - it only seems like years. There are tons of strange sketches, peculiar characters and generally odd goings on, and we’ve packed lots of ideas and weirdness into each episode. Much of this is down to producer Richard Cray who is one of the best audio producers out there. I’m not sure exactly where he is, but I do have it on good authority that he’s out there.
The new series includes regular characters such as agricultural singer/songwriter Farmer Collins and avant-garde film director/amateur weather forecaster David Lynch. We must also put up with the return of The Actor Greg Haiste who insists on interrupting whenever he has a new play out, which seems to be every week. There are some fine turns from notably funny folk such as Anil Desai and Max Dowler who provide a host of nutty voices and impressions, Anna Emerson Out Of Sketch Group The Boom Jennies (who appears to be turning into Joyce Grenfell), mad continuity announcer Miles Eady, all-round comedy human James Shakeshaft, and Will Franken, who often ends really long sentences like this one. Katy Slater provides a host of excellent vocal performances an’ all, and I’m in it somewhere or other, possibly both. The whole shebang will be starting on the British Comedy Guide website on June 29th. You can hear Series 1-3 on there now, but not unless you listen to it. Until next we meet, this is me saying goodbye, so long, farewell, and in that order!
