CONTRIBUTE TO THE ADAM & JOE LIVE EVENT

Joe and I are doing a event at the BFI Southbank on December 15th 2016. It’s been 20 years since the first series of The Adam & Joe Show aired on Channel 4 here in the UK so we thought we’d have a birthday celebration in the form of a live podcast taping with a few old video clips to break up the waffle.

WHY COULDN’T I GET A TICKET YOU BASTARD?

Whoah, easy there! Tickets sold faster than we anticipated. Apologies if you weren’t able to get one. We haven’t done a live thing like this before so it’s a bit of an experiment for us. If it goes well, we’ll try to do more in a larger venue some time.

We’re doing 2 shows on the 15th December but the structure of both shows and clips we play will probably be the same. What will vary from show to show will be the correspondence we read out from our kind and loyal viewers/listeners.

As with the Adam & Joe podcast we recorded last Christmas, we’d like to invite you to submit short messages on various subjects, some of which we’ll read out to each other on the night.

HOW CAN I MAKE A SUBMISSION DR ADAM BUCKLES?

No need to be so formal. Adam is fine. You can submit your message by writing in the comment box at the bottom of this post. Your message will NOT BE PUBLISHED on this blog, even though on some browsers, it may seem as if it has. Unless I get hacked, nothing can be published here without me approving it. Joe and I will read through all the messages submitted beneath this post and pick our favourites to read out, so to make it easier for us to collate (as it’ll be just me and Joe going through all the messages), please keep your correspondence short and use one of the following headings:

1. MY AMAZING STORY (TEXT THE NATION)

On ‘Text The Nation’ we used to ask people to send in stories on a given theme. The obvious thing would be to send in Christmas stories, which you’re welcome to do (as long as they’re extremely funny, extremely profound, extremely moving or all 3), but as this has been an eventful year in many ways, you may have other top notch anecdotes floating about so please, send those too. Remember to keep them as short and pithy as possible!

2. EGGCORNS

I like to think we had a hand in bringing the world of Eggcorns to a wider audience on the 6 Music show back in 2010-11, but I like to think all kinds of things that turn out to be bollocks. Anyway, they still make me very happy, so if a partner, a friend or a workmate has hatched some good ones recently, send them over!

3. TRAVELLIN’ TALES

“Tales of travellin’ on the train, or an automobile or an aeroplane, we want to know what your travel entails” Have you had an experience on public transport that was funny, awkward or bizarre? Perhaps you behaved badly and want to confess? Now’s the time.

You’re welcome to send anything else in: Popropriation, stories about how Adam & Joe changed your life in unexpected and hilarious ways, bank details and pin numbers etc. Don’t worry about jokes though, we’ve got that segment covered!

Please remember, though your messages will not be published on this blog, they made be read out to our live audience and used in a subsequent podcast so anything you submit should be considered public unless you specifically request otherwise.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: FRIDAY 9th DECEMBER -- THE STROKE OF MIDNIGHT!!

    Thanks

    respectful hug and kiss

    • Eggcorn.

      Hi Adam. I’m a newbie to your loveliness, much to my shame, so I’m enjoying binge listening to all your past podcasts. I realise I’ve missed your Christmas eggcorn deadline, but I loved hearing them so much (I nearly couldn’t drive for laughing). I just want to reach out and contribute, so I’m sharing my humdinger of an eggcorn with you..

      My best friend worked in a large insurance firm in London. Her working world was so different to mine, it fascinated me and we talked about it a lot. Her computer regularly crashed, and over time she developed a funny rapport with a very large, sweaty man who used to arrive to repair her computer. He spent all his time on his hands and knees squashed beneath her desk, and the office nickname for him was Pieces of Pork. He had a dry sense of humour, so I often enjoyed hearing tales of Pieces of Pork’s witty remarks. One day my friend excitedly told me that Pieces of Pork had actually asked her out on a date! At this point I told her I didn’t think Pieces of Pork should be called Pieces of Pork anymore, it was a bit degrading and I was worried she would accidentally let it slip and call him that to his face.

      She then informed me (when she could breathe again after laughing) that she had always referred to him as PC Support.

      (Unfortunately after that the Pieces of Pork nickname well and truly stuck.)

      Love you bye xxx

    • I know you’re probably sick to death of mangled made up jokes but I had to tell some one -

      Why shouldn’t you have sex with the 7 dwarves?

      Because “it Snow White you want to do” (It’s not what you want to do)

      COME ON thats brilliant!

      Cheers

      Jack.

    • Good day to you Dr Buckles, A couple of eggcorns from my youngest daughter, she is three…

      When I’ve been a little forgetful with the nailcare maintenance, she comes to me in distress to tell me she has ‘shark nails’ when she means she has sharp nails.

      My favourite of her eggcorns began some months ago. We live in Abu Dhabi, where the local ladies take great pride in their make up rituals. Many of them creating exotically angular eyebrow shapes. This led my daughter to approach a colleague of my wife (MY WIFE) to inform that she liked her “eye clouds.” She now regularly approaches taciturn emirati women to announce in her booming three year old voice “I like your eye clouds,” or, “why are your eye clouds so big?” Unfortunately, I have blond eye clouds, so she just asks me where mine have gone.

      Thanks for everything you’ve been putting in my eyes and ears since the Adam and Joe show days.

      Love you.. BYE Matt
