Join Dr Norman Trousers and River Zambezi as they chat about whatever they feel like at the time. May include daftness. Rude, sometimes crude, chat and sketches and big laughs all round. If you can handle a bit of rum language and like a laugh, feel free to join in the Mirth!
Episode 6.2: That's more like it!
Well, this is a world record! From recording to publishing in under a week? WTF?? Miracles will never cease. This delectable slice of that podcast that just won't die kicks off with a disagreement on sandwiches. River takes the government skills assessment and we get an insight into the great man - but it's utter rubbish (the assessment that is). Dr Norman is...a bit tipsy and Paul Heaton from the Beautiful South is a very nice man. River REALLY doesn't like Meghan Merkin. Or Ed Sheeran. Or rich people. We meet Ada and (Inappropriate) Edna and are welcomed to the Hotel Aquarius. The reminiscent frenchman tells another tale and there's chat of Dr Norman's fixation with one of the victims of the great Pompeii disaster. Oh, and there's a world exclusive on the Channel Mirth News that you will NOT want to miss...
S6E1 The Warm Up
It's been a while. Ok it's been a looooong while. But here it is, a light in a world of utter madness, some stupidity to break through the mire, some complete and utter...well you know. And if you don't, well good luck. In this long-overdue slice of Mirth, the boys catch up on what's been happening - as much as they can remember. Dr Norman recalls the time he did an open mic stand-up routine. The Casa Mirth website got hacked and Dr Norman got confused. There's a ridiculous discussion on toilet paper (more or less), no Mensa prizes for a chat about invisibility, and a potential avenue for a new career via Only Fans. Celebrity Brainwave invites an acting legend to show their general knowledge chops, the Channel Mirth News returns and did we mention the Falcon sex hats?
S5E4 Unoriginal Hashtag
Yes they're back! (and about as welcome as a second term for Donald Trump). In this delectable slice of idiocy, the boys have an argument over a facebook joke, decide it's time for a show-sponsored charitable initiative and discuss unfair taxes. Dr Norman tries to support a positive attitude to gender fluidity by using a pigeon rape metaphor and it doesn't really work. There's a rambling explanation as to why there hasn't been any Mirth for 6 months and talk of teenage masturbation. Dr Norman admits he was wrong about something and was inappropriate at work, while River is just inappropriate. Oh and it's amazing how quickly the conversation goes from disagreeing about a joke to theoretically masturbating an unexpected vagina with a rolling pin.
Episode 5.3: 50% More Chaos
Oh my lord! In this skip back in time (quite literally, this was recorded 3 months ago FFS!), Dr Norman has a speech impediment (not drink related) and has face aids. Some bright spark has the idea for everyone to do accents... and it's about as ridiculous as you would imagine. Along with the normal shenanigans, there's dicks, blasphemy and for some reason, cock jousting. Poor old Stephen Hawking is dead, and they're still banging on about his dick. Finally Dr Norman gets distracted by River Zambezi ordering food at the end, so there isn't really an end bit (not that you'll mind I'm sure, you know how to find us). So if you ever thought the hosts were drunk before....well maybe you'll reconsider after listening to this one. Oh and did we mention there's a VERY special guest? (who didn't know that Bruce Forsyth was dead...)
Episode 5.2: We may have said this before...
Crumbs you are being spoiled! A new episode in under 3 months - what's going on??!! In this new instalment of what no-one is calling "the Tupperware of comedy podcasts" (no I don't know either), the boys are worried that they may be recording pretty much the same episode as the previous one as they were so drunk they couldn't remember what happened (and recorded this before S5E1 had been edited). We have the world's quickest conversation about vegans. Dr Norman knows surprisingly little about anatomy for a doctor and isn't losing weight...and we might know why. River learns about colonics and enemas and the difference between the two and the boys conclude that cancer is bad. All that, a new episode of Casa Mirth's Film Club and a truly "interesting" chat about Stephen Hawking and it's business as usual for the funniest podcast these notes are about.
Season 5 Episode 1: That was a bit of a wait!
Well that was a bit of a wait! Your forgotten favourite podcast is back - and it's like it never went away. In this delectable slice of Mirth: There's an argument straight out of the gate, and Dr Norman apologises to one of the artistes who contributed to the Christmas special... River saw the Human Centipede 3 and has an itchy bum (not related). The boys have had an idea for Christmas...and it's big! Dr Norman gets emotional and has questionable experiences with cats, there was an incident after the Christmas special and the boys ask a very provocative question. All in all, Dr Norman is drunk, River gets a bit angry and it all gets a bit lively (maybe more than usual - for reasons explained on the show). That said, it's all over before you know it. So sit back, put your waterproof laughing pants on and enjoy!
Christmas Special 2017
Merry Christmas Everybody! Yes it's back for one last festive fling of the year. Well we say festive - as festive as a conversation about the nativity, flat earth and w@nk socks can be... But there's more than just inane chit chat (although we know you love it) as this year, Dr Norman Trousers and River Zambezi treat you to the Casa Mirth version of "It's a Wonderful Life" - featuring a star-studded cast in a (not entirely accurate) remake of the Christmas classic. We hope you enjoy the show!
Episode 4.4: The Casa Mirth podcast Show
Roll up folks! It's another episode of that podcast you easily forget you've missed so much! In this delicious slice of Mirth, River Zambezi takes over - and can't remember the name of the show. There was so much covered in the first hour it was difficult to keep up with note taking so let's just say that River and Dr Norman Trousers discussed a lot. It all gets a bit spiritual at one point, River "doesn't read the Daily Mail" and shouldn't be allowed pets. No sketches but lots of the ridiculously inane yet somehow hilarious chat you've grown to love (and love to groan about) makes this a great reminder that the mantra "quality over quantity" is definitely being kept to. oh and Dr Norman kicks off a fairly lively conversation that it's probably best you're not fore-warned about...
Episode 4.3: Unplanned
What??!! A second episode in the same month?? What is happening here!? Yes that's right - the boys are back in this (appropriately titled) Unplanned episode of your favourite podcast. Dr Norman Trousers and River Zambezi went to a beer festival ...all day. An impromptu recording session ensued, with virtually no planning - and it probably shows. In this slice of aural carnage, there's arguments about making tea and mobile phones, talk of fantasy women and recollection of a very deep conversation in the cab on the way home from the beer festival. Dr Norman can't remember pretty much anything, there's an attempt at answering a listener question that goes horribly wrong and the hosts are both entirely unimpressed with the latest charity single doing the rounds. With no ads, no sketches, and let's face it - no idea, this all wraps up into a welcome surprise episode from two of the biggest idiots in podcasting.
Episode 4.2: Home Alone!
The boys are back and they've been drinking in the sun for 6 hours - so things start off as you would expect and go downhill from there! In this cataclysmic episode of the podcast that's like your favourite uncle who never turns up to family gatherings, Dr Norman had a health scare a while back and has recently been home alone. There's an unexpected argument about a fart and a brief discussion about vaginal steaming. Dr Norman dreams of jamming in a music shop and River likes a careless whisper. Both boys resolve to lose some weight and eventually answer some listener questions. Well - fail to answer one and debate (whilst getting nowhere) a question about the zombie apocalypse. All this as well as a return from the cinematic madness that is Film Club, the guys at Radio Mirth say hello and we meet a rather interesting vet. So kick back and enjoy the show!
Season 4 Episode 1: Here we go again!
Yes folks - the proverbial bad penny of podcasts is back with a bang! Apart from not knowing what they're doing, it's like they've never been away...ok so they never know what they're doing... This episode can best be described by a phrase that most men wish they could say; "It might be long, but it won't hurt". Ok actually it's more like "It'll be over before you know it". In this funtabulous episode, Dr Norman Trousers attempts a retrospective of 2016 focussing on celebrities who died with little fanfare - which is made harder by the fact that River Zambezi hasn't heard of any of them. Dr Norman just wants a "coffee" and can't do a Russian accent. There's a brief chat about advertising and the boys go off into their own little world after having an idea for "japes" at Currys (a local electrical retailer). There's an attempt to remember children's tv theme tunes that turns into a discussion that goes as well as you'd expect, and a chat about classic films reveals why Norman won't go on a cruise. Norman's given up bread and had a dream about a doughnut (that's donut) that leads to an inevitable question. Talking TV shows turns into a heated discussion about "romance" (well not exactly - but it turns out River's an old romantic at heart.) So sit back, grab a drink and get ready for another slab of mirth and merriment from your favourite idiots.
Christmas Special 2016
It's that time of year again folks! Roll up for the biggest, daftest, star-studdedest Casa Mirth podcast Christmas Special ever! Dr Norman doesn't know how to pronounce David Bowie's name, 2016 has not been a good year to be a celebrity and the boys ponder the immortal question - who would win in a fight between Santa and Jesus? Bonn Voyage pops up for a quick Christmas conversation and Dr Norman and River discuss what happened in the years that they were born. Alongside this, there's a couple of Christmas music classics played for your listening pleasure on Radio Mirth, a podcast star-studded episode of Celebrity Brainwave and the epic (literally it's massive) Christmas Special radio play. This year it's the Casa Mirth version of the Bill Murray version of Charles Dickens' classic, A Christmas Carol. Featuring a whole host of podcast heroes, this version is guaranteed to be different to any that you've heard before. Featuring (in no particular order): Marc Hershon, Tommy Royal, Samantha Pett, Stuart Buckland, Jason McNamara, River Zambezi, Angus Doodall, Paint it Black podcast, Bold and Belligerent, The LoFi Show, Dark Angels and Pretty Freaks, Old Man Orange, Nigel Boydell, Davian Dent, Megan Mohn, What a pair of Trousers, Bonn Voyage, Eric Furniss, The All Seeing Guys with Greg and Joe, Ice and the Face, Ed Wallick and Dr Norman Trousers. (hope we didn't miss anyone!). So sit back, relax, grab some egg-nog or whatever your favourite Christmas tipple is and settle into Christmas with Casa Mirth. Merry Christmas!
Episode 3.5 Bonn Apetit!
Just before you go about forgetting these two idiots, the Casa Mirth podcast is back! In this delectable slice of audio pie, Dr Norman Trousers and River Zambezi are joined by a very thpecial guest - Bonn from the Bonn & Obo Show, also known as Bonn Voyage from Strange Times and HandShandy786 on Tinder. Bonn's raised the game a bit and this episode shows that the hosts can actually be quite intelligent, with some interesting discourse. Sort of. River still loves a pickle, the spectre of self fellatio raises its head again and Facebook gets a brief mention but is stopped before it turns into another rant. Unfortunately River brings up an age-old argument and Dr Norman disagrees (again)- which turns into the kind of car crash you would expect. There's a discussion about toilets unsurprisingly, it all takes a serious turn with a discussion that touches on the threat of terrorism and Dr Norman goes off on one about tribute bands. Apologies to any deaf people who may listen to this episode... Never mind the girth...feel the Mirth!
Episode 3.3 - Insects and Robots
Here we are again with another episode of your favourite podcast! River Zambezi and Dr Norman Trousers are back for another slice of daft. In this offering, the hosts discuss bad hand writing and chemistry lessons. Dr Norman has written a rhyme like you've never heard before and there's an almost intelligent discussion on the (host's) discovery of masturbation. There's a beautiful apology to a fan and both hosts are quite irritated by the thought of robots having rights. Even agreeing at the start can't avoid another argument, this time about sex dolls of all things! Finally, and almost inevitably, there's talk of a particular nature about...insects. Laughs aplenty in another fine outing from Messrs Trousers and Zambezi - get it in you right now!
S3E2 Plus One take Two (part 2)
Part 2 of season 3 episode 2 is upon us! In this conclusion, Dr Norman works with animals and there's talk of dolphin masturbation and turkey sex (don't act surprised!) We also check in on Casa Mirth's Film Club and the long awaited third episode of the best show ever to come from a parallel universe - From Within the Actor's Head. Facebook problems, bizarre pet jewellery and a controversial question finish up this second part of the best podcast that no-one listens to.
S3E2 Plus One take Two (part 1)
Well it's been a long time coming, but your favourite podcast is back! Dr Norman Trousers and River Zambezi are joined by a very special guest for what is only the second episode of the year (but on the plus side, it's a two parter). There's legal beagles, censored material and ninjas. In part one, there's talk of animal husbandry, Hitler and cheesy balls, as well as the Channel Mirth News. River laughs, the special guest gets really stuck into proceedings and Dr Norman has an existential crisis after he upsets a listener. Also, a special tribute from Angel Barry White and some very rude but very funny chit chat make up the first installment of a well overdue episode - all of which will probably make you glad this isn't more regular... Having so much fun led to a really long episode, so this is part one - part two coming soon!
Season 3 Episode1 : Rally the Troops!
Social media and booze breaks; very dubious discussions of a sexual nature; new quiz show Celebrity Brainwave and disaster! Join Dr Norman Trousers and River Zambezi in another bonkers episode of your favourite podcast! It'd be the best if you can spare the time to rate and review the show on iTunes. Check out www.casamirth.com/3-1-rally-the-troops for more show notes. Follow us on twitter @CasaMirth Enjoy the show!
The Christmas Special 2015
They're back. Yes, a very drunk Dr Norman Trousers (having had an afternoon of Christmas drinks at work), and the first person to ever attempt to perform a magic trick on an audio-only podcast, River Zambezi.In this festive spectacular, we find that River doesn't like pastrami and Dr Norman's never had a spam fritter. There's an update on (and a song for) Ralph, River's new saying doesn't go down too well and there's a bit of a dark revelation about Finding Nemo.There was a bit of confusion over some of the articles for sale on Firebox, against all scientific evidence Dr Norman argues the toss about how hot a volcano is and both hosts get a little apologetic over the feel for the episode as circumstances meant that the recording session didn't follow "the process".Dr Norman's memory lets us all down and he forgets the name of the lovely person on Twitter who had some very kind words for the show (it was @DJSL22), and is aghast at the literally tons of crap games for kids this Christmas (and mixes up Poopy Fun Time with Poopy head - both are quite ridiculous although one may not even be real).A familiar face (voice?) is back for the Channel Mirth News, there's Film Club, Radio Mirth (with the world premiere of the Christmas song recorded especially for the Casa Mirth podcast, aka Casa Aid) and the highlight of the show, the "special" part of the Christmas Special - the star-studded Casa Mirth version of The Nativity.All this adds up to the best Christmas Special yet!Merry Christmas, one and all!
Episode 2.6: Hysterical (part two)
They're back! Here it is, part two of the pant-wettingly funny final episode of 2015 (well apart from the Christmas Special...) To be honest, there wasn't much of a cliff-hanger to part 1, but to avoid mirth-overload we thought it best to split the episode in two. So here it is - number two. Literally. Yes, you won't believe the main subject matter of this smaller, but still (we think) hysterical chunk of Casa Mirth. In this laugh-gasm of epic (and just plain wrong) proportions - there's a man with no dick (not one of the co-hosts), River's never heard of vague-booking and one of the strangest conversations ever on the show leads to a philosophical debate that has probably never been discussed in the history of man. Ok it's an argument. A gloriously stupid, hilarious argument, which we guarantee you won't have heard the like of before.
Episode 2.6 (part 1): Hysterical
Here it is folks! Episode 2.6 of the world's most infrequent podcast. The episode that was so long and hilarious, we had to cut it in two for public safety reasons!In this first part of what turned out to be a smorgasbord of hysterics, Dr Norman wants to play his ukelelebanjo because he wrote a song and there's talk of an interview which led to the show's first negative review.River nearly sharts and neither host agrees with participation medals.Finally a discussion about charity "months" somehow descends into an argument about pubic hair and River's been listening to some weird stuff on spotify.All that, along with the ever-present Channel Mirth News all add up to a blinding return. We apologise now if you make yourself look daft if listening in public!
Episode 2.5: Gimme a 'D'
In yet another episode from the Halley's Comet of podcasting, we join Dr Norman Trousers and River Zambezi for more daft discussions and comedy gold. (ok white gold admittedly).In this show, an off-the-cuff comment leads to a disturbing discussion regarding sexual preferences (kind of), we find out that Dr Norman doesn't like mushy peas and has been refused booze again.The boys have been to a wedding (and got busted being a bit naughty), there's an elaboration on the tank paintballing story from the last episode and a stark warning on Dr Norman's web browser leads to a very serious and unsavoury news-story about an ex co-worker.We get to hear the award-winning Casa Mirth-produced Balderdash theme tune from the Paint It Black Comics podcast, River refuses to believe a story about a Mexican with a third leg and we find that it's not just Jesus's wang that's worshipped.All this, a new episode of Film Club (with tasty treats!), Redneck and Raunchy, more Radio Mirth and the ever present Channel Mirth News all combine into a great way to waste some time.
Episode 2.4: Horny Dead Badgers & Dutch Ovens
They're back! After a bit of a break, Dr Norman Trousers and River Zambezi bring you another episode of your favourite podcast. A slightly different feel to this one as "the process" was changed for the pre-show prep, so not so many tangents to be found in this one (normal service will resume for 2.5).In this show - Dr Norman is home alone and River doesn't know what a dutch oven is. There's tales of extreme breastfeeding, toilet paper issues on planes, swearwords and "meh" words and horny dead badgers.Norman suggests some charitable initiatives after a tangent discussion about Stephen Hawking's junk, there's a sexually liberated dolphin and it's Competition Time on Radio Mirth.All this, the Channel Mirth News, the reminiscent Frenchman and Angel Barry White add up to another great show for you to enjoy :)
Episode 2.3: Jesus & Bad Mammals
In this episode which has been a long time coming (to almost biblical proportions you could say), the boys discuss the story of Easter and suggest some alternatives to the generally agreed legend - plot-holes and all. There's also revelation about Jesus you may not have heard before. We find that Dr Norman never has bad dreams, there's ASCII porn, talk of show t-shirts gets a bit weird and River is not impressed with Dr Norman's tales of food-based disasters. A theoretical talk of time machines kicks off a bit of a reminiscence, Dr Norman loses a word and we learn that meerkats are areseholes, emperor penguins are shits and otters are cunts. The stand-in presenters of the Channel Mirth News sound suspiciously like Bonn & Obo and there's a new edition of Film Club. This, along with an absolute legend saying hello, all adds up to another blinder of your favourite show!
Episode 2.2: Patron Saints and made-up Monkeys
Welcome back to season 2, episode 2 of the show that keeps on coming...just very slowly. From a slightly unexpected start, we join Dr Norman Trousers and River Zambezi in another mirth-filled slice of your favourite podcast.In this episode - the boys show a lack of knowledge around patron saints, River wasn't impressed with a recent eclipse, there's talk of airplane poo and Dr Norman's been doing some exercise.Talk of the generalisation approach in Psychology leads to a fairly odd outburst regarding monkeys, the miracle of make-up is debated and a conversation following Dr Norman's research into fetishes proves why you wouldn't want to take a bath at River's house.All this and there's the Channel Mirth News, alas without our usual anchors (as we bid farewell to a stalwart of the show), Carl Danger pops up - or should we say "drops in" and we meet a couple of Northern driving instructors for the first time. We also learn that neither host will be tongue-punching anyone's dirtbox in the near future, but for very different reasons.So sit back, relax, and get ready to be entertained and hopefully amused - this one was a blast!
Episode 2.1b - We hope it was worth the wait
It's back!! On this brand new episode of your favourite podcast, there's a vague explanation of the delays around Season 2.Dr Norman doesn't like Kanye West, and has either experienced freaky coincidences or the show has gone psychic.There's a massive difference of opinion regarding toilet escapism, Oscar-themed chat, a debate over selfies goes a bit serious and no-one likes the Kardashians.A comment about unicycles with no seats descends into a fairly unintelligent discussion about some of the technology in back to the future 2 and Dr Norman's spacky toe. River has strange plans to name his yet unlikely first-born child that lends a slight political incorrectness to the moment and we learn that he's never heard of a fleshlight.All this, a little ditty by friends of the show Bonn & Obo, a debate between swimwear and underwear and the ever-present Channel Mirth News hopefully make this a return worth waiting for.Oh and get the hankies ready - not just for the sex toy talk....someone dies.
The Christmas Special
Join Dr Norman Trousers & River Zambezi on this, the first Casa Mirth podcast Christmas special.This harks back to the good old Morecambe and Wise Christmas TV specials from England in the 70's/80's, although I doubt Morecambe and Wise would have heard of, let alone had an opinion on, scat porn.In this very special episode, Dr Norman has a bone to pick with Jools Holland. River isn't impressed with Norman's new euphemism and there's a 65,000 million year detour!The boys give a tip of the hat to a recent PodUp and the not-so good guerilla advertising in London (it's much better in Korea!).Dr Norman is fairly disgusted by the thought of turkey and stuffing flavoured donuts and on a more festive note, recounts an article outlining reindeer's hallucinatory proclivities and the "circle of p*ss".There's also a fairly inexplicable and un-festive diversion towards poo and our co-hosts have very different feelings about Christmas.With the ever-present Channel Mirth News discussing the Jolly old fat man, a festive version of Film Club, a Christmassy Carl Danger and a Christmas Eve sitcom, sit back with your egg-nog, vodka or crystal meth and enjoy the fun.All of this, and more special guest stars than you can shake a stick at, makes this a cracking present to open this Christmas!
LBOTS3: The Mirthday Special
People of the internet! People who love podcasts! People with ears! Today we celebrate Mirthday!!That's right - the Casa Mirth podcast is 1 year old! Who would have thought from humble beginnings, sitting on camping chairs and drinking tea, a year later Dr Norman Trousers and River Zambezi would still be kicking around, persecuting their livers with gallons of booze and standing up during a recording session!It's been an amazing year. The boys have learnt a lot; they've argued a little. They've opened their souls to you, and you've opened your earholes to them...and altogether, we've peed our pants laughing.Here's a special edition of LBOTS - Little Bits on the Side to remind you that the immensely professional image that Messrs Trousers & Zambezi portray on the award-winning (not really) podcast, the Casa Mirth podcast, does sometimes crumble - but then, that's just as hilarious and they're not precious.Also in this special edition, quite a lot of un-heard additional content, an intro/outro from none other than Carl Danger, and some very special birthday, no, Mirthday wishes from some good friends.Special thanks to Bonn & Obo, the Bold & Belligerent podcast and the legends that are Royal & Doodall - the mere presence of whom is so exciting it would make a sandpit wet.
Episode 12: How did we get here?
In this all-new episode, Dr Norman Trousers is suffering from the sinus AIDS (he has a cold).After a silky start to the show, Dr Norman tells tales of travel, espionage, guerrilla advertising and the difference in toilet flushing between planes and trains.There's a call to arms for our listeners, a discussion about a japanese sex doll ramps up into a bit of an argument and River Zambezi doesn't like the lucky waving chinese cat in the Casa Mirth studio.Dr Norman ventures past #172 on the telly and is surprised at the preponderance of both urdu and babestation channels, sparking a conversation that descends into an increasingly bizarre and entirely uninformed deliberation of online webcam porn sites.Unexpectedly, Dr Norman has a little rant of his own about people who diss the mediums by which this lovely show is heard, which River gets a little scared by. All this, shout outs to new friends, the ever-present Channel Mirth News, more wandering away from the point (how did we get here?) and a re-enactment of an uninvited "cold call", make for another hilarious episode of your new favourite podcast!
Episode 11: The "F" Word
The "F" Word? : Fappening, Furry Fellatio, 555 and F*ckloads of Fun! That's right folks, it's here! The show you would rather listen to than be kicked in the genitals by a donkey (we hope). After a difficult time actually starting the show, Dr Norman comes up with a new spin on speed dating. River talks about a recent war-wound, and there's a difference of opinion on inter-species fellatio. Dr Norman recalls a patio door incident as well as his dismay concerning Millie Cyrus' use of an inflatable dong and Lily Allen gets both barrels from River. The boys give a slightly different take on "the fappening", there's a theoretical discussion about the anatomy of the older ladies and our hosts eventually talk about S&M (no, not Steve and Mike). Add to all that, the ever-present Channel Mirth News and it's another cracking burst of Mirth for your entertainment :)
Episode 10: Typo's, Cokes and Super-juice
So here it is folks! Episode 10 of the show that won't just molest your funnybone - it'll buy it a drink first and respect it in the morning.In this milestone edition, a debate around an ultra-orthodox religious act descends into a difference of opinion on self-fellatio. There's a white board (or maybe a wipe board); the premise of how a difference in spelling could distort reality (which does affect old favourites, the Channel Mirth News and Film Club) and there's a new approach to recording.Dr Norman Trousers gets his own theme tune; there's discussions around stunt cocks and dolphin rape and we hear all about River Zambezi's claim to fame.Dr Norman almost gets emasculated by Kathleen Turner, the boys discuss the benefits of reviewing the show on iTunes and we get to find out: who is Carl Danger?
