Communication from Congo Central #AdamAndJoe

Adam's mind never strays far from the swampy jungle regions and this is no exception.

It's Joe's Fault.

Exclusive: Ink dry on location for Ridley Scott's "Monopoly" #AdamAndJoe

It seems too innovative to believe but as we all know, Adam and Joe are the eyes and ears of the film industry newshounds.

We're still awaiting confirmation from Scott Free but a spokesperson at Colonic Industries Inc. has confirmed they will be receiving a sizeable consultancy fee from "an unnamed production company" for a period that coincides with the duration of pre-production and well into principal photography.

Sorry to be the bringer of the spiders #AdamAndJoe

This popped up on YouTube yesterday with thanks to Bob.
I clearly remember giggling uncontrollably when this was first broadcast but that may have been due to the build-up of other insane texts earlier in the morning.
This is a solid example of the perfection enjoyed when listeners' contributions feed Adam and Joe with the material that they can present in their own unique way to make this a Sony Gold winning show.

It's from 4th April 09.

Also please note the use of Sally Grosart's Paper People. Sally can still be viewed, flirting with Tim Minchin (or was it the other way around?) on Genius via the iPlayer.

Play Deal Or No Deal in your own home! #AdamAndJoe

After seeking out the clip for last Tuesday, it pleased my tidy mind to include this today. It may strike you as overlong and a little tedious but there are some lovely nuggets in there.

This item was chosen to suffer the now celebrated fate last experienced by the "Easy" button. It wouldn't be Christmas without some jovial destruction. The following acts as a disclaimer.

From 22nd December 2007


Sorry if you feel this blog is becoming prematurely festive. It is coincidence, I assure you.

Distilled Orange Man Juice #AdamAndJoe

I am of course, referring to Adam and Joe's realisation that it is completely unneccessary to sit through the David Dickenson farce with a treasured artefact in your hand.

I thought this butted up nicely against yesterday's nugget but never fear, there will be more Deal or No Deal drivel from the Adam and Joe Archive tomorrow.

This show is essentially "Can I Have A Bit More Money, Please"

From 19th December 2009

If anything in this blog appears like a lame innuendo, you only have your own filthy mind to blame.

Deal Or No Deal #AdamAndJoe

It would be an overstatement to say this clip was requested but a mention of it popped up on Twitter via Richard Neville so I thought I'd dig it out.

Podcast Intro Day: Everybody's using it #AdamAndJoe

It's a short one today which is one of the reasons I haven't posted it before. There are only a couple more 6Music singing intros left and I'm getting nervous. I might break out the XFM surreal intros to take us through November.......should that be necessary.

Pierce Bronholm sings especially for us #AdamAndJoe

After yesterday's rather naughty post, I thought Sunday deserved something joyously naïve and uplifting.

Mummy and Daddy Cornish were so enthusiastic about the Mama Mia film that Joe felt he really should upgrade it from it's place at the bottom of the 'must see' pile.

So impressed was Joe that he clipped the musical highlight of the film for us. I would suggest that you listen to this in a room completely void of sensitive dogs.

From 23rd August 2008.


Resist the urge to kill yourself and stick with it.

How to be good in bed #AdamAndJoe

It's the weekend. There's a 'R' in the month. Let yourself go.

I should really thank Ian Breen again for this as I probably wouldn't have chosen it if he hadn't had me looking through the old Christmas shows.

Once again, it's part of the gift exchange but beyond that, not too festive.

Electric Proms Anniversary #AdamAndJoe

Can it really be a year ago since so many Black Squadron members were secretly mustered to the cause of frittering away a Thursday lunchtime?

I was going to list all of the TwitSquadron members who attended but in doing that I might commit the terrible shame-crime of forgetting someone. There were hundreds of us, at least.  Some of them are even on camera, briefly.

There are photos here and everything.

If you don't know what all this was about, how dare you? Put in a few seconds of research, for goodness sake.

Perfect design from Hens' Bottoms Incorporated #AdamAndJoe

Bing Bong: Diana Conspiracy Update (for @Sam_Clements) #AdamAndJoe

It's always nice to fill a request but it's an honour when it comes from the beautiful Sam Clements.

I didn't even wait till the morning for this one, sir.

From 5th September 2009

I know you'll want one bit of this as your text alert tone so here it is:


Adam taps on Derek Acorah's beautox #AdamAndJoe

This is another request fulfilled. You can always tweet me with a request and if I can be arsed, I'll find it and plop it up here*.

It have Ian Breen to thank for this one.

Joe gave Adam a CD from Derek Acorah as one of his Christmas presents and the waffle the dribbled around it was reliably priceless.

I've stayed away from the Christmas episodes for most of the year but this isn't a particularly festive.

From the 20th December 2008 pre-recorded show.

*I can almost always be arsed.

A couple of bits for @HenWeb #GlastoMusicForecast

As you know, I'm always happy to fulfil a request.


This one was from Henry Ellis and whilst it doesn't actually include Adam and Joe, these two nuggets were broadcast during their Glastonbury 09 shows....or maybe on the podcasts.

I seem to remember there were three of these in total, made by Adam & Joe's lovely producer, James Stirling. A very satisfying cultural crossover for me because I did so miss Charlotte Green's luxurious satin voice doing the Shipping Forecast when she moved on to bigger things.


I'm cool. It's cool. I'm Bernie Mac #AdamAndJoe

One of those rare bursts of genuine, loving honesty from Joe when he's reminded of the special bond he has with Adam's brain as he discovers that they both love Bernie Mac.

From 30th August 2003

You can see a little bit more Bernie here.

Celebrity Regression from the Foochore #AdamAndJoe

Even if Joe didn't know what an amuse-bouche was back then, he was disarmingly sweet with the young Alex. I do like the way his father is very nearly a match for Joe (if such a thing even exists).

Can there really be fifteen things on telly funnier than this? #AdamAndJoe

I really cannot think what they may be. Adam describes Joe as the one with the balls to do the free stuff but he looks uncomfortable sitting on that sofa. He retreats to the ultimate refuge - speaking louder with his hands than with his voice to distract us.

Sorry the sync is out on this. I tried it a couple of times & I can't be bothered to fix it. Life's too short.

Adam Buxton doing another gig in New York on Monday #AdamBuxton

With thanks to ChubbyBadass on Twitter, it seems that true to his word, Adam is doing another little gig while he's over there.

It's Whiplash night at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre and it's free!

The line-up is detailed on this forum. I hope it's accurate.

If you're in town or have friends in town, please go along and support the lovely man.

There are details about his Sunday gig here and you can read more about the trip at Adam's own blog.

Adam Buxton has a gig in New York on Sunday! #AdamBuxton

Just in case you don't come here via my Twitter account.....these are the deets.

He's doing a one hour set which I would imagine is similar to the non-BUG gigs he does. 

He'll be singing and dancing and prancing and reading YouTube comments and I just hope New York are ready to be tickled into submission by the beardy wonder.

It's at the sexy Luca Lounge on Sunday at 9pm and I'll be there! I won't.


I can hardly contain how excited I am for dear, dear Adam. He must be simultaneously bursting with excitement and pooping himself but they'll love him and his set is incredible at the moment.

For someone who can knock out a decent tune with Garageband, Joe seems to really struggle to find the down beat on this one.

Barely a second of Adam's BTDMA acceptance speech was shown on ITV2 but the same can be said of most winners.

Even if you weren't at #6Fest you can play the game #AdamAndJoe

Something to do over coffee.



This was one of the many wonderful things in the beautifully produced programme for 6Fest.

Don't forget to check for photos of Adam at their website.

Stick at it, Joe #AdamAndJoe

This should have gone with yesterday's post, probably.
Every so often, the lore of the idiotholes leaks into mainstream broadcasting and is treated with the mystical protection that it deserves.
There's no point in having the most glorious secret in the world if you don't put measures in place to preserve it.

Who ARE these Buxton and Cornish comedians?

This poor contestant took a bit of flack on Twitter for his idiotholinessity but give the guy a break.
Adam and Joe are and will always remain our special secret. I shall endeavour to explain my theory a little more in tomorrow's post.

@AdamsBigMixtape wins a BTDMA #AdamAndJoe

Can't find a decent link but I trust this man without exception.

Both Adam and Joe were there.  For some unaccountable reason, they seem to be sitting round the wrong way but I can still just make out which one is which using my mind skills.

This was the first 'full' report on-line but it doesn't say much and it certainly doesn't say it all.
I hope Joe took Adam's win in good faith. It would have been a little odd if the Adam and Joe Show had won after all these months off air (six glorious hours in summer, notwithstanding).
