Great List Of Comedy Podcasts
I have my own comedy podcasts - Hosks Half Hour, which very funny by the way. enough of that blatant plugging.
I am interesting in listening to other funny podcasts and I noticed that the Telegraph today included a list offunnypodcasts out there on the Internet. The list is a fairly predictable list of podcasts but they are predictable because they are all pretty funny.
I have found it quite difficult to find comedy podcasts because there are a lot of terrible comedy podcasts out there, usually with 2 people just talking to each other. So instead of comedy you just earwig on two people chatting. Even with the famous podcasts it usually ends with two people chatting. This is fine for the radio where they have 3 or 4 hours to fill on a regular basis but for people who have a weekly/monthly podcast then I think they should be a lot more comedy in them.
so before I let you go on your way to read the list of comedy podcasts you should consume, I want you to remember one thing, Hosks Half Hour is better than all of them, click here to see for youself

These are spoof radio reports from America’s favourite fake newspaper. Stories are delivered with slick conviction on subjects as ludicrous as President Obama getting tangled in coat hangers; cheese smugglers gettingdangerouslycheddared and North Korea being unprepared for an attack by North Korea.

The Mitchell part of Mitchell and Webb offers a string of funny personal video rants. Topics include: “I hate lorries”; going to the doctor; getting rid of a mouse; and what your beer choice says about you. All delivered in Mitchell’s 24-carat satirical style.
Video podcast in which Ricky Gervais teams up with his favourite collaborators Steven Merchant and Karl Pilkingtonto discuss important issues such as the meaning of life and Karl’s astoundingly low IQ.
Last year’s iTunes Podcast of the Year, Answer Me This! is the brainchild of Helen Zaltzman and Olly Mann who have taken it upon themselves to answer thousands of their listeners' most profound and burning questions, such as ‘do humans still need hair’ and ‘should I go out with my boss?’
HOSKS HALF HOUR
Brilliant podcast is the brain birth of the Hosk, an Internet Enigma who is obsessed with putting the word Hosk into as many things as possible, he is also the inventor of the Hoskcast, like a podcast but funnier. It is a comedy podcast featuring amusing news, stand up and observations, twisted ambient music with odd stories. It has morale dilemmas and an obsession of reading Sun Stories.
