The Comedy Cast’s Christmas Boner

We swap bodily fluids, speak Irish Christmas traditions and funeral first dates

Hello and welcome once again to The Comedy Cast, another bonus boner episode all about this special time of year. No, not that type of special, we mean Christmas.

Comedy Podcast

We kick off the show speaking about the different bodily fluid oozing from ourselves this week.

Tick tock, tick tock, Christmas is almost here so we have a we chat about the differences between an Irish and a Polish Christmas, including Captain Iceman, who brings presents to some kids in some parts of Poland. This leads us down a dark tangent of how the Catholic Church has Jesus as two different entities, the baby and the man, actually it’s more, because he’s also God and the Holy Spirit and how Mary, the virgin, is the only woman in history to get away with the whole ‘it was god who got me preggers’.

Working in retail is Hell at Christmas, working in retail in a toy shop is akin to Dante’s vision of the fiery inferno of Satan’s refuge and Seamus has plenty of stories about his time working in Smyths over the Christmas period a few years ago.

We have a wee chat about mental health issues over Christmas. As you’ll know by now we take the issue seriously on the podcast and we’re united in our hatred for the Irish media clique who pretend they care but we all know it’s just lip service. Christmas can be a terrible time for some people and you have our full sympathies. If you need to chat or vent, don’t be shy, you can get in touch with The Comedy Cast or seek out proper, professional help and don’t suffer alone. We’ve both been there and you have our support.

Next up we have a little chat about Christmas music. Ah y’know, sometimes it’s great and sometimes it’s shite. What can you do, it’s like all other music really. It is a bit intrusive though, it’d be nice to go shopping and not have it blasted in your ears. But whatever, that just makes me do my shopping online so it’s all gravy baby.

We get a little serious for a moment then, Seamus is a recovering alcoholic and with drink playing such a pivotal role in Irish traditions it’s not easy to avoid the demon drink. So we speak about it for a little, how difficult it is to avoid but also how he copes with it.

Finally then we speak about traditional Irish Christmases, from the RTE Guide to the Late Late, to pints of stout to the made up Plastic Paddy nonsense of Irish eggnog and tricolour shots.

Have a mighty Christmas everyone, we hope you have a belter.
