Spent the last couple of days catching up with the FUBAR shows. It absolutely blows my mind that Barry, as a professional comedian, doesn't realize what a funny story it is to get covered in piss and shit on a train journey. The way he casually mentions it, thinking it's nothing and then for Ian and Nat to just ask a couple of questions, resulting in something so properly funny..... Look, I know he's not a character but how can anyone, let alone a paid comic, not understand that?


I know that it's been said to Barry in the past about how some of these stories should be material in his stage act but he says that he doesn't see them as especially noteworthy, they're just things that happen to him. But when you think of something like the pool hall story, he could shape that into a dynamite routine.

Last week they made a big noise about a guest cutting an interview short.  Guess they cut that out then?

No, it was the last guest - John *Surname*.

Still catching up on the last few weeks - is it all still in there turn? Is it obvious, or is it all behind-the-scenes stuff?

Just remembered that I listened to the full show, not the podcast.
Don't know if the flouncer made the pod edit.

Fuck I hope it did. Do you mind giving some detail on what happened if it is missing?

The full show is on the Fubar site. He's the final guest, so he's on from about 20 minutes from the end.

It's probably in there. I had to pause around that point. I misremembered it as the guy from Wang Chung flouncing, so I was listening to that interview all tensed up waiting for him to take extreme umbrage at being called a baldy by Ian.

Yeah, it's in the podcast edition. It's not that big a deal really, the Eastenders guy comes across as a prick from the start if you ask me.

Finally listened to it, and I thought it was strangely hilarious.  Particularly cracked up at the phrase 'random bear.'

Go back a couple of Fubar episodes to the last ones Barry was on. I don't think he tells it on the Andy Bell ep, I think it's during the Attenborough ep. But it's sort of a hurried telling of it. If you listen to this Some Nonsense with Ray Peacock episode where Junior Simpson is a guest you get a better rendition of the story.

I think if it hadn't been flagged up in advance it would have seemed funnier. But because Ian had already talked about it because he was obviously annoyed by it then it gave it too much of a build up. I wish the show had a few less guests tbh, I preferred it when there were segments with the producers and Barry got a call every week.

No, I don't think it will. It was on Ian's Patreon.

So the “tasty update” is a link to last year’s live Parapod?  What for?

Still loving the Big and Daft retrospective. It's just warm, lovely, fascinating. Odd to think a couple of weeks ago I basically knew nothing about the group. After Ian's brilliant posts and the intimacy of the conversations make me feel like I really know the group now. Such a shame there's no footage of any of their shows.

It's really compelling to hear them each be so candid about their actions at the time, especially the retrospective look at the opportunities they missed. In a general and philosophical way as well, it's interesting to listen to them talk about ways they could have done things differently, but how that's easy to do in retrospect, as you can only make the decision you make at the time. Strange to think how Ian's career may have gone had they gotten their own TV show.

I've been way behind on these shows, having only just caught up with this one and, like you, had the exact same experience in thinking that it was Wang Chung bloke who was about to flounce off and kept waiting for him to turn on Boldsworth. As for John Surname who turned out to be the flouncer, he was 100% at fault for asking about Ian's cock before then feigning faux outrage and ending the call (IIRC Ian goes straight into Oops I Did It Again perfectly). The fact that none of us know who he is or what he was promoting means the whole thing backfired on the flouncer.

Ian talks about it a little bit again on this week's show, about how Eastenders wanker apparently went back to his pr, lied, and said Ian asked about his cock.

Nat: "I tried to get Alice Cooper on the show but he wasn't interested"

Ian: (quick as a flash) "Why? He does loads of shit radio"

I really enjoyed these last two semi-drunk Fubars.  I suggest Ian becomes an alcoholic for his craft.

Nothing confirmed yet, but I believe the last bit of filming has just been done and Ian has been discussing distribution on his Patreon.
