054 - AN ACTING MASTERCLASS

CheapShow 54 aims its spotlight at the theatrical stage in an episode dedicated to the life and appalling acting talents of 19th century actor Robert Coates. But is Eli a worse actor? You can find out as Paul reads Eli another demented tale of low life larks. It's not just story time on CheapShow, the cheap chaps also present another "Mi Casa, Su Casa" segment which leaves both pretty offended and underwhelmed...

And we jump into another pile of vile vinyl in "Silverman's Platter" that takes in a tour of 80's novelty music, a Cabbage Patch Dolls concept album and the jaunty tunes of one of the UK's most racist 70's comedians. Oh what fun!

CheapShow was recorded at "The Pod" at White City Place.

053 - DON'T GET MAD STRIKES BACK

You demanded that it returned. You wanted this. After long last, it's back... We are returning to the ugly world of "Don't Get Mad" and this may be the most demented, twisted, hilarious one yet... But don't say we didn't warn you! In this long awaited episode, Paul & Eli go back to basics with a classic Tales from the Dancefloor (one that manages to break Eli), a revamped "Price of Shite" that goes down very well indeed and a super sour "Cheap Eats" too! It's stuffed with the usual CheapShow madness but with the added volatility of an "angered by toothache" Paul and a "ready to snap" Eli... It's definitely the most CheapShowy CheapShow to date and it may destroy your tiny little minds. Hold On Tight. CheapShow was recorded at "The Pod" at White City Place.

052 - HOUSE OF PICKLES 5

We venture onwards with our 5th trip to the House of Pickles, the supposed "mini" episodes that just keep on getting longer and longer! In this new audio adventure, Eli & Paul wax lyrical about the loss of the word "bastard", fail to create two new segments for the show, come up a cropper when they decide to pinch someone else's Life Hacks and Noel Edmonds is given yet more of a verbal beating. Also, Patreon donor Jordan Richards joins the Cheap Chaps for another chat where we discover Eli's fear of Ikea, talk the birth of Barshens, tackle YouTube scumbags and even dip their ignorant toes into Sci-Fi!

051 - LIFE IS CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP

This should not have been Episode 51. Noel Edmonds made us do this. We can only apologise profusely and hope you can forgive us... We watched "Cheap Cheap Cheap". For our sins we watched it, so you never have to.

This episode begins as a commentary track for Ep01 of "Cheap Cheap Cheap" but quickly and horrifically devolves into something unforgivable. Eli was WAY too ill to sit through an hour of Noel Edmonds and it nearly breakes him. In turn, that nearly breaks Paul too. We will all be sorrier for the experience. We can never apologise enough. All opinions and immature accusations are obviously us taking the piss. Please do not make us lament having to write that last sentence. We feel bad enough.

050 - 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 are we stuffing this episode? Well... Paul & Eli tackle your questions in a bumper #AskCheapShow segment that quickly goes off the rails and causes some mathematical confusion in the process. This also gives everyone the chance to look back over the past 49 podcasts. There is a mind blowing "Tales From The Dancefloor" that questions reality in more ways than one. We revisit Paul's "FrothShop" for more cheap eats from Gannon's fictional candy emporium. We revisit "Bobby's" branded snacks and take on their range of budget maize crisps. The results are quite surprising... especially Paul's new "FrothShop" voice.  We play another bargain board game based on a TV show format with Noel Edmonds' "Telly Addicts" which annoys Eli, upsets Ash and throw Richard for a loop. There is also time for "Silverman's Platter" where he delivers two odd musical curios, one which puts us back in Eurovisionland and one that makes us want to die inside. And as an aside, Richard brings along a very rare VHS. Finally, CheapShow delivers the most ultimate "Price of Shite" ever.

It's full of shocks, surprises, twists and also features possibly THE most awesome/awful piece of charity shop shite ever seen on the show. It's one that the charity shop itself thought it would never sell! The outcome will SHOCK you. We also get a few hellos from past CheapShow guests... some who were less keen to come back then others, albeit very briefly! So download, relax and enjoy the biggest Power Bottom of a podcast CheapShow has done to date...

Warning: Contains added Noel Edmonds. Who is now our enemy. But why...?

049 - 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 and potato hoop snacks stacks up to the genuine article and the results are shockingly surprising...

There are more random vinyl singles in Silverman's Platter to listen to, some of which are actually quite good for a change (but not many) and it's Gannon's turn to deliver "The Price of Shite" with one item concealing a horrid, unsettling surprise!

It's more of the usual awesome bouts of tat and chat and, for some reason, Paul is not going to take Eli's crap any more (and Eli isn't particularly bothered)!

048 - 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...

047 - 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 jelly beans called Double Dares! One particular flavour will send shock waves through one of the hosts, but who will it be and what flavour? Finally, Paul & Eli discover two annoying new sounds that aim to show their smug appreciation of a thought! Welcome to the FrothShop!

046 - 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 on the holy grail of muck... And its not good. Not good at all!

045 - 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 regrets of every Edinburgh Fringe Festival performer ever, our anger at the early time slot, the unknown aspects of E-Cigs, early morning boozers, creating your own cheap laugh track, Paul & Eli go heavy on the free phone apps, we get a rather random Price of Shite and Paul creates a convoluted new game... just for the sake of ONE cheap gag!

044 - 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!

043 - 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 pointless and grotesquely sexy at times. Oh, and stay tuned at the end... Ash, sorry, DJ Ashy F has made something special for you!

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, from singing Terminators, Irish folk songs and WWF wrestlers!

Eli gets dissed by Paul in an epic slamdown... if only the music cue worked! The audience foist some lovely presents upon the hosts.
