Apparently they're in discussions now but, if the cinema screenings prove popular, they'll be doing more of those first.
It's definitely worth watching with an audience.

Ok thanks. It’s one I would go and see but doubt they’d show it around here.

Think Ian and Barry missed a trick not calling it 'The Parapod Fillum.'

There will be at least 2 more screenings in early May (Leeds and *forgotten*), but they're not on sale yet.

Guess who got tired of waiting for the Leeds tickets to be available so bought a front row seat at Halifax instead, just before the Leeds ones were released?

Me.
Me is the answer to the question above if it wasn’t clear.

Still, looking forward to it! And it’s sooner anyway, so less time to avoid reading anything about the film.

caught this in Bristol last night, was really good. Audience laughing hard all the way through. Barry looked so delighted when he stepped out in front of the audience

Just got round to reading the Christmas issue of Viz and in the bit where it announces competition winners from the previous issue there is one Barry Dodds.

What is this

The Parapod is a paranormal-themed comedy podcast hosted by comedians Ian Boldsworth (formerly known as Ray Peacock) and Barry Dodds. Basically, Barry believes in and is obsessed with ghosts while Ian is a skeptic, so they investigate different alleged supernatural events each week while playing off each other in a kind of Gervais/Pilkington fashion. It's very funny and they've now made a film of it which I don't know much about, sorry.

I desperately want to see this but I'm skint and far away from all the screenings. I'll console myself by listening to the Bigfoot episode.

Fucking hell, what a night. Don't really want to give owt away, I'm sure Ian and Barry will have some stuff to say about the screening on Patreon, but the pair of them are absolute champions for powering through that screening. Tough enough for Ian to have driven down and had it go ahead without all the technical issues and make-it-about-me cunts in the audience. I don't think anyone would have blamed either one of them if the event had been pulled or rescheduled. But the pair of them, fucking god bless them, absolutely delivered beyond anything. I was thinking at one point (when Ian disappeared backstage, bellowing 'where's my heroin?!') what an unappreciated gift he is as a talent and entertainer to his fanbase and generally.  The graft and dedication to making people laugh even in the face of nightmare situations. And Barry, the champion, did a stellar job in what seemed like a stand-up's hell. We don't deserve the pair of them.
