Ep 286: The Muppet Show LIVE!

Earlier in the year John and Josh presented a night at ACMI all about the Muppet Show and how it changed the world of television.

It sold out very quickly and chances are you missed it. Never fear, though. Through the magic of modern technology we’re able to bring you an edited audio version of night that most people have already forgotten.

It becomes episode 286 of our little show and you can listen along and pretend like you were actually there.

In the show notes we’ll include a bunch of clips that we played so you can listen and watch at the same time. Enjoy.

    Blatant missed opportunity for a Manha Manha on “apocrypha”.

  2. Does anyone know whether the Outland listed here is the same one that was the best new comedy of 2011? 🙂
