Adam and Joe Bio-drama on BBC2 tonight.....sort of #AdamAndJoe

At 9pm tonight, BBC2 are repeating Daniel Rigby's BAFTA award winning performance in the spuriously titled "Eric and Ernie" which is a thinly veiled exposé of the early days of Adam and Joe.*

*(It's not but it's brills.)

An Adam and Joe Show reminder in the form of a song #AdamAndJoe

Fondly remembering the days when they were like newly born, ramshackled foals, stumbling to their BBC feet, here's a little New Year song to get you in gear for this morning's Best of 2011 Show at 10am.

From 31st December 2007

Happy New Year's Eve and please get shitfaced responsibly

Joe Cornish's spurtle preserved for posterity.

As tradition would have it, the last Broadcasting House show of the year on Radio4 presents one incredible person with their covetted award.

This year, that great honour went to Joe Cornish.  The event is no longer on the iPlayer although I believe the podcast is available until the middle of January. I felt enough time had passed to justify popping the clip in here.

A couple of people had their Human Christmas Tree pictures loaded onto the BH home page here and here.

The turkey can stuff itself. (Other plump birds are available - me, forinstance) #AdamAndJoe

Why would I waste time forcing bread and herbs into a place where the sun don't shine when I could make a really low quality, utterly disrespectful bit of nonsense like this?

Happy Christmas, Adam and Joe fans everywhere.
Adam read a seasonal story on Tom Ravenscroft's show last night.
You can still listen to Garth's lovely festive tune too.

Will Lars Von Trier ever plunder Joe Cornish's brain for another film? #AdamandJoeXFM

I've been meaning to knock this one out and it drifted across my laser head last night by way of a reminder.

Yeah, I realise Lars saw fit to miss some of Joe's carefully thought out details when he made Melancholia but in a glass-half-full way, that leaves the opportunity for Joe to expand on the idea himself in the wait, Joe never divulges ideas he thinks he might need for himself......

From XFM Series 2 Ep 7 (as the Adam and Joe Fan Community describe it) around March 2005.


Don't forget, James Coffee Starling has sifted through a handful of the best bits from the 2011 Adam and Joe Radio Shows to make three glorious hours of 6Music joy on New Year's Eve.

Adam Buxton is having a fiddle down under in January with what I hope will be a corked-hat filled version of BUG and this means BUG29 will hit the BFI in February for which you can buy tix in January.

He's made a lovely festive YouTube video to warm your cocks and gladden your heart.

Joe Cornish has gone back to being lazy again.

If you see him in the street, just shout 'yo stretch!' and that'll wake him up. Hopefully, it won't make him drop the bundle of scripts he's carrying in a reenactment of that incident in Borders with the silly stand.

The product of his last burst of activity is available in a handy-to-wrap-for-Christmas shaped variety of boxes. Don't rent it, you fools. You'll miss all the lovely extras.
