#29: The Episode with Naked Blake & Birthday Boyd

Our favourite Skeleton Brains are back! Blake Farha, Daan Henselmans and Henri Parmentier join us in season three for another epic adventure. Together, they took us to 30AD where "Jesus Christos" zoomed around on an e-Scooter and the People for the Unethical Treatment of Animals (PUTA) had sway. The story of a German kid who's drunk friends try and break him out of jail inspires the worst surprise birthday gift of all time, and Blake's nude adventures through France take us to the set of Naked in Paradise, the sitcom where method acting gets a little too method. This episode was brought to you by Bear Radio with support from Hindenburg and Tom Evans of Particle Studio.Follow Skeleton Brains on Facebook to find out where they are performing next. If you’re interested in learning a little Improv while having a proper laugh, these guys also host the weekly Improv Playground at Heile Haus in Kreuzberg and you’re welcome to join!

#29: The Episode with Naked Blake & Birthday Boyd

#28: The Episode with Buxom Bosoms & the Angry Brewer

Kevin Napier, Emma Aldridge & Lou take the WTM stage as Britwich, a British Sandwich if you will, with Kevin as the single slice of American ham. The true story of beer sabotage inspired a tale of the angry Frenchman, driven to extremes because "who would put Franken in Germany!?" The groups' mutual misadventures in the world of clubbing and flirting took us back in time to "Ye Old Club" with Rosalind the street walker and to wrap things up, Lou's skinny dipping experience introduced us to two of our favourite characters: Marjorie and Tabitha, and their pruned bosoms. This episode is brought to you by Bear Radio. Thank you to Hindenburg for their support and to Tom Evans of Particle Studio for his help with the theme song. Catch our guests in various groups and at various gigs around Berlin. You’ll find Emma performing as part of People System at Comedy Cafe Berlin Harold Nights and hosting the Nameless Comedy Open Mic (facebook.com/namelessopenmic/). @yergal_loulou_ can be found p...

#24: The Episode with the Trebuchet Salesman & Café Wars

It's the final episode of Season 2 and it's an epic adventure featuring the weirdest stories and wackiest improv, brought to you by Michele Guido, Clementine Satsuma and Andrea Andrésdottir of Legends in Concert! The terrible but true story about a woman who was hit with a medieval cannonball inspired the moat loving Trebuchet salesman. Michele’s run-in with the cops took us to a WG casting where every applicant’s documents were covered in something wet and the awkward interaction between two of Julias colleagues gave us a look into the life of a girl with very unfortunate Doppelgängers. Being the final episode, we thought we'd treat you to an EXTRA story that came out of our What's The Mate Storytelling night and inspired the Café War of the century!This episode was brought to you by Bear Radio with the kind and continued support from Hindenburg, and Tom Evans of Particle Studio.Be sure to catch Legends in Concert in various shows and Harold Nights at Comedy Cafe Berlin, and i...
