Short Men / Tall Tales (Comedy Podcast)

About This Show

Show Info: Short Men / Tall Tales - a comedy podcast, consisting of comedy conversations between radio star King Karamel and Hip Hop Karaoke host Bobby Champagne Jr that, each week, sees them delving back into their pasts and dredging up a selection of their most ridiculous (but 100% true) anecdotes. May contain strong language and adult themes, will definitely contain awkward and embarrassing recollections! If you are searching for the height of podcast comedy - you have taken a wrong, but intriguing turn which may well end in you being devoured by a redneck cult, a risk worth taking. Allow us to introduce the stars of this weekly comedy podcast! Firstly there’s Reprezent Radio DJ and fashionable man-about-town King Karamel - or Munya Chawawa [*good name] to his parents. Munya spent his childhood in Zimbabwe, where he accumulated a range of frankly-unbelievable stories, such as a brief foray into running with a local gang (until a stray kick in the bollocks set him on the straight and narrow) and an unfortunate incident that saw his dog Charlie being eaten by his neighbours, which must have been traumatic for the young ‘Pimp Slicky-Slick’ (another apparent ‘aka’, which we’re almost certain he’s never been called), but has proved to be gold-dust for a comedy podcast. Relocating to badlands of Norwich, our soon-to-be Vlogger had to navigate the choppy waters of a god-fearing father, with almost as many aliases as his son - and a surely-unhealthy obsession with the women and, it turns out, men of WWE… And whilst this is all great material for a comedy podcast, we need someone to prise these ludicrous scenarios from Munya’s memory banks, which bring us to his comedic sparring-partner - Bobby Champagne Jr Bobby grew up in South London’s answer to Zimbabwe, by which of course we mean Wimbledon - and whilst his youth was mercifully free of dog-eating, his life took no less a bizarre path, thanks to a self-sabotaging sense of humour, and love of showing off which saw him play in a number of appallingly-named bands (e.g. ‘The Coathanger Abortions’ and ‘DJ Rhythm Bitch, Nazi on Heat and his Unwanted Pregnancies’), and as a result find himself in liaisons with a number of appallingly-attired girls. These days, Bobby hosts the legendary London club night Hip Hop Karaoke, and as his day job interviews pop stars - and as a result just about manages to hold his own (not a euphemism) in the comedy podcast stakes with a mixture of horrifyingly em.
