WELCOME TO 404 FUNNY

Hello and howdyerdo.

This is 404 Funny - the new comedy podcast where you'll find a lot of those old programmes that used to be on the trailblazing Comedy 365 podcast, along with a lot of new stuff.

As a result of some internal reorganization, Comedy 365 is now back where it started, concentrating solely on Sowerby & Luff's output, and so a home needed to be found for everything else.

Well, here it is.

Ta-daa!!

Yes, we know it ain't much at present, but once the feed is up and running smoothly, then we'll look at adding more content here or elsewhere, such as contributor profiles, audience surveys, a Facebook page, and possibly even some merchandise if there's enough demand from listeners...or even a final demand from the bank.

So what can you expect?

For the next few months, archive shows from Jenni Armstrong, Blue Pepper, Richard Cray, John Dredge, Will Franken, Pegabovine, James Shakeshaft & David LE Davis, Chris Skinner, and Jake Yapp - all of which will give you a taste of our peculiar brand of comedy.

We'll be filtering in new shows by some of those listed above towards the end of 2009 with a view to bringing you new shows by both new and established acts by Spring 2010.

And we also hope to be at the 2010 Edinburgh Fringe in some capacity too, but let's not worry about that right now...we're all too busy slaving away at proper jobs at the moment, trying to pay off the debt from this year's festival...

It all kicks off on October 1st, so bookmark this page and subscribe to our feed at iTunes or, indeed, any other podcatcher you may hold in preference (we know 20% of you do).

If you're an existing Comedy 365 subscriber, you'll know what to expect from us and we're glad to have you with us as well. Together, we helped Comedy 365 achieve a great deal in a short space of time and hopefully we can achieve even more in the years to come.

If you're a lapsed Comedy 365 subscriber, welcome home - we took down that old wallpaper, fixed the toilet, and fumigated the whole place especially for you.

If you've no idea what Comedy 365, podcasting, or, indeed, comedy podcasting is, then a) where the ruddy heck have you been all these years and b) you're in for a real treat.

Stick with us - it's going to be a whole lot of fun.
