Special Guests: Stuart Ashen & Ash Frith

It's another LIVE edition of Cheapshow, on the Vidfest stage at October's MCM Comic Con 2016.

Be afraid! Eli and Paul are joined by part time co-host Ash Frith and YouTube botherer Stuart Ashens for a show that sees Eli mistakenly think it's cool to drop an Ace of Base reference and announces a life hack for Monopoly.

Meanwhile, Paul finds most people think a "Straddlebob" is a racist word, pits "plebs" against "celebs" for a very special Price of Shite and, once again, threatens his co-host with physical violence! 


We're Back!

After a brief hiatus, Paul & Eli are back for more cheap tips, cheap tat and cheap laughs.

The economy comedy podcast has returned and its bigger and better than ever... actually, its exactly the same.

In this particularly grotty episode, Eli advises, not only where to buy and find weird and wonderful vinyl, but also how to get rid of a fat bloated corpse.

We catch up with what the chaps have been up to during their time off (Paul: Lots, Eli: Nothing).

We get into some old school Price of Shite goodness and we cap the show off with a "Dollop-esque" investigation of Britain's most horrible, dirty old man: John Meggot/Elwes Ahh, Cheapshow. Trashy as ever!

We would like to once again thank Page Branson for our awesome new logo and Brian Wecht for the trippy & fantastic new theme music. Give them your love @bwecht @page_branson


The Con is On with another episode of CheapShow !

Paul & Eli are joined by guest Damien St John who is thrown head first into the wild world of CheapShow as the cheap chaps tackle cheats, scams, hustles and cons in a bid to get rich with as little effort as possible!

Discover how Eli's career was ruined with tepid piss. Find out how to flog The Eiffel Tower. Learn how to outwit some of the more common rip off scams you may come across in your day to day existence and listen in embarrassment as Paul turns magician/grifter all on a budget of £2! It's more economy comedy podcast larks.. You have been warned!


It's another Scrapbook of Crap... And this time it's personal!

After Eli took the internet by storm with his very strong opinions about Instant Noodles, it seems only fair he uses the podcast as a platform to answer his fans from the Barshens channel YouTube comments. He is taking over the world. We are very sorry.

Paul & Eli also discover just how well (or not) they know each other when they take a "Mr & Mrs" style quiz, one that reveals a little "too" much!

Finally, as its another scrapbook show, we release from the vaults two clips once deemed too crap to use, but now seem fair game. Why, you ask? Well because we would've had a full episode had Eli turned up to the sodding recording. Thanks to Skype, we get something just as good. Almost. Kinda. Whatever. Enjoy!


You ask Eli to do ONE thing! Create an original segment for the show and he shows up with piss poor life hacks. Paul is not impressed. Don't worry though. Paul cocks up too and forgets to record cheap eats. Paul fixes it, but via dodgy re-record!

In this section the cheap chaps have a right old moan about the state of modern crisps! SHOCK HORROR!!!

Finally, Eli falls in love with a You Tube celebrity and its a match made in heaven. Listen to their love affair begin!

It's another random episode of the economy comedy podcast!


Do you remember Look-In? The old 80s magazine for teens about TV, movies, music and comic strips? No? God we're old? Well, if you do, you are in for a treat as Paul & Eli find a stash of Look-Ins and decide to look into the history of the weekly magazine and fall head first into a nostalgic hellscape that includes Madness, 5 Star, Worzel Gummidge, Spagna, The Krankies and, god help us, Little & Large.

At some point... Paul MAY have a massive rant about shitcom "Bread" by Carla Lane. You have been warned!

We also have all the usual bits with more Tales from the Dancefloor and The Price of Shite... But we discover that Eli has a fanbase thanks to his appearances on the YouTube channel "Barshens" and the comments are... well.. troubling!

Its more cheap topics and cheap laughs in another CheapShow podcast!


They say you should never go back... They say never try to repeat yourself... They say never look back... They didn't listen. 

In this episode of CheapShow, Paul and Eli crack open the "Don't Get Mad" anger management role play game and try to calmly resolve a load of fictional stressful circumstances. It gets dark pretty quick!

Before you get to that nightmare of a finale, the cheap chaps look into the weird ways businesses save money, pathetically try to craft font based gags and are sent a bunch of American Junk Food that they may like a little TOO much! All this and much much less on the economy comedy podcast you deserve! 

(With thanks to Allison Guinn and Jenny Silverman for the donations this episode) 


Welcome to CheapShow! 

Well... What should've been a short and sweet little feature on just how much your old 80s & 90s toys could be worth quickly turns into a messy tangential omni-shambles.  

Eli and Paul end up talking less about the toys and more about which rock bands became crappy ballad merchants, cheesy crisps and whether we are all living in a alternate dimension simply because people can't figure out if some bears are called Berenstain or Berenstein! It's a nightmare! But don't worry, the CheapShow chaps also play a round of "The Price of Shite" & regale us all with another "Tales from the Dancefloor".

It's another episode of the random pop culture economy comedy podcast! 


Paul & Eli bring their love of Game Shows and Light Entertainment to it's natural conclusion in this very special nostalgic battle royale. There can be only one winner and losing any rounds will carry horrific consequences! 

In our 20th episode spectacular the CheapShow Chaps take on 3 of UK TV's most popular 80's Game Shows. They try to read each other's minds playing Blankety Blank, guess what 100 people thought in Play Your Cards Right and use their bargain hunting skills in a few rounds of The Price of Right. To the winner, the spoils. To the loser, its a gamble on the infamous Jelly Belly Beanboozled candy. A fate worse than death! 

There is also time for some more Cheap Eats from the USA and a few "commercial breaks" too! 

The Economy Comedy Podcast goes all out on giving you a blast from the past! 


It's the return of the CheapShow Chaps with more opinions on the cheap and cheerful as well as the budget and brilliant!

This week, Eli and Paul talk about all things America as Eli has just returned from a trip to the good old U S of A!

Eli and Paul tackle Trump, come up with a piss poor revolutionary uprising strategy and look into the murky world of countrfeit dollar bills!

The Cheap Eats selection is taken from some of the finest gas stations, drug stores and Dollar Trees America has to offer. Paul is NOT impressed.

Ash Frith gives us a little insight into the Hollywood MockBuster explosion, covering everything from Transmorphers to RoboPoliceMan.

Finally, we end on the tragic tale of Mr Blobby, his awful music, his American renaissance and go down the "Awful Novelty Hit Single" rabbit hole... You have been warned!


Easter treats abound in episode 18 of the economy comedy podcast! 

Paul & Eli tackle Easter in the only way they know how - poorly. They talk Easter memories and discover Paul's love of Read-A-Along Adventure books, via Ghostbusters and a kinda racist Rambo! The chaps discover a YouTube video that helpfully explains the story of Easter, and they tear it to pieces and sing along with Christ music. Ash Frith reports in with weird and wonderful movie "Easter Eggs", Paul and Eli taste test some cheap chocolate treats, paint cock and balls on a clay egg and Eli's TOP THREE returns and is as shouty as it ever was! 


Stand back Superman, Iceman, Spider-Man. Batman and Robin too... It's another CheapShow podcast with Paul Gannon & Eil Silverman! 

This week, the chaps discover the story of a fan made Batcave made on a budget of £100... And then fall down a superhero rabbit hole and Eli makes a rude confession! Ash Frith talks video game conspiracy theories and in Cheap Eat, Eli and Paul stick a load more weird food in their gobs. Will the Jellyman defeat them? The Price of Shite contains egg shapers, comedian Top Trumps and some more added video game Batman where it all gets a little 8-Bit. Finally, Eli decides to role play a few anger management scenarios with Paul... It does NOT go well. 

016 - 80s FLASHBACK

We're going back, unintentionally, to the 1980s!

In this episode of the economy comedy podcast, Paul Gannon and Eli Silverman tackle the charm of living on the cheap...

They finally get around to talking about their new year's celebrations... One's that involve feeling very old and diving out the way of rogue fireworks

The lads search Ebay for the weirdest online bargains - Everything from male chastity belts to vintage Playboy magazine... and discover how they use food during sexy times.

Ash Frith returns to carry on talking about who bequeathed what to whom.

In our regular game "The Price of Shite", its all gets very 80s when Eli pulls out his cassette decks and mix tapes

And finally, in the ultimate act of UK 80's nostalgia, Paul and Eli battle to the death... on a boardgame based on 80s TV hit "Bullseye".

Who will win? Do you really care? Find out in the latest "CheapShow"


In our 15th episode, we belated jump on the Star Wars bandwagon by talking about the cheap B Movie rip offs, taste a selection of barely edible Star Wars candy, talk to Ash Frith about who Shakespeare bequeathed his 2nd best bed to, and play one of our weirder editions of the Price of Shite! Along the way we discover Eli auditioned for Stomp with Jar Jar Binks, hear Paul take on the character of a wiggly worm and try to offend their listeners in order to get a response!

It's the day before Xmas, and Paul and Eli have forgotten one small important thing... PRESENTS!

To right this wrong and make sure consumerism is returned to the heart of Christmas, the boys race out into the snowy London streets to look for that extra special gift!

In this dramatic/comedic/pathetic production, Paul and Eli will deal with owning a randy cat, discover how drunk Eli gets based on his biscuit choice, find a curious little shop full of odd nic-naks, dine with a family poorer than Tiny Tim' and eventually discover a demonic toy and a one way trip to the North Pole... They MAY even meet the real (YES REAL!) Santa Claus!

So let us amuse you this Xmas with a bit of CheapShow magic!


Guests: Stuart Ashens & Richard Sandling

Recorded Live at MCM London Comic Con in October

The boys are back and LIVE at London's awesome MCM Comic Con on the Vidfest Stage. In this supercharged hour of podcast loveliness, Paul and Eli argue over who's introduction is worse...

With HUGE thanks to the Vidfest crew, MCM Comic Cons and the awesome audience, we present another hour of bargain hunting, arguments, taste tests and audience participation.
