The studio is booked and the actors are primed, everything is set for the final curtain (is there a curtain in podcasting?!) The only problem is, well, Lee. He’s not turned up. What will the gang do if Lee doesn’t show? Why is there no script? And is Rachel real? There’s only one way to find out.
Meanwhile, Gary is settling down to open the Christmas presents he’s bought himself, Helen is talking to herself and Facebook have a brand new app to get you in the spirit. And there’s a half written sketch about stuffing too.
On Saturday 30th November, the 4amcab team assembled for the last time this year and recorded the final episode of the current series. It’s been so much fun to work with all our brilliantly talented actors, that I just wanted to acknowledge them all in white and black, for giving up their time to do our silly little show.Chris B, Anna, Will, Helen, Chris L, Jo and Dan have been fantastic and always up for trying out our crazy sketches, even when they are just that little bit too rude (sorry Anna & Will in particular!).
Once the final episode is released into the wilderness and we’ve had time to recover from all the festivites we will begin working on the next stage of 4amcab’s existence (whatever that is?) and Rachel and I certainly hope that all our actors will join us again for the ride. I’m fairly confident that they will, as they get to go to the pub afterwards!
The final episode of Series 2 will be released on Wednesday 18th December, just in time to get you in the Christmas Spirit.
Hi there, how are you? It feels like ages since we last saw you, haven’t you grown?!
So, the 4amcab podcast has been on a bit of a post series break but the good news is that we’ve been grinding out one last script ready to round off Series 2. The Christmas Special is written, it gets recorded on Saturday and it will be ready to download on Wednesday 18th December. Hurrah!
It’ll be the final episode of the series but not the last you’ll hear from us. Rachel and I have had our first “What the flip do we do next?” meeting and once the Christmas Hangover has properly kicked in we’ll be detoxing and banging our heads against a wall repeatedly until something new comes out. It may be Series 3, it may be a panel gameshow for snails, at this moment we have no idea. Like I said, though, we’re not done yet.
In the meantime, sit back, set the alarm clock for 4am on 18th December and relax while we work hard in the background to bring you the conclusion of 4amcab 2.
It’s really good to see you again. We’ve really missed you.
