A new podcast called ‘Comedians Remember Things’ has been announced that will feature a variety of different comedians remembering something then remembering something else.
“This is a really exciting project,” said podcast host Simon Williams, a comedian who was once nearly on Mock the Week.
“I came up with the idea when I was zooming with this other comedian and I went ‘remember tamagotchis?’ and he went ‘yeah, they were mad,’ and he laughed, then he went ‘remember Toast Toppers?’ and I went ‘yeah, they were mad,’ and I laughed.
“We both just sort of stopped and looked at each other. This was gold. Normal people would love to hear comedians remembering things. We should start a podcast.”
The first episode will feature Williams and someone you’ve vaguely heard of but can’t quite place.
He went on, “Yeah, it’s going to be really good. We’re going to remember the Tomytronic 3D games, Roland Rat, and Quantum Leap, then I’m going to remember a time at school when I did something funny in class and everyone went – ‘God, Simon, you’re really funny, I bet you grow up to do comedy while the rest of us all just get jobs in computers’.
“Which I did, of course.”
‘Comedians Remember Things’ will be available from next week and is expected to last three, or perhaps even four episodes, before it comes apparent that absolutely no-one is remotely interested and Williams is left with just over two hundred ‘Remember Furbies’ mugs stuck in his mum’s shed.
