Pappy's Flatshare Slamdown

Pappy's Flatshare Slamdown

An innovative audio comedy panel game podcast from sketch team Pappy's, recorded in front of a live audience. These episodes are not topical so it's fun to listen to Flatslam anytime.

We absolutely love making Flatshare Slamdown, and we very much hope you've enjoyed the close-to 50 episodes we've turned out in the last six years. If you do enjoy the show, we'd be very grateful if you'd consider bunging us a donation

It's Chriiiistmaaaaaaaaaas! ...and Elis James and Andy Zaltzman are the gifts that keep on giving in this typically, nay, traditionally shambolic and festive episode, stuffed (like a badly prepared turkey) with anger, carol singing, accordion music, Advocaat, Gold, Frankincense and a chainsaw.

Want to give us an Xmas gift? Some people think that giving cold hard cash as a Christmas present is a bit of a faux pas. Luckily, we don't think that at all, so if you want to slip some money into our stocking you can donate here (try not to picture us dancing for you in stockings as you do this).

If Xmas has left you stoney broke, fear not, we'd also love the gift of exposure (try not to picture us exposing ourselves as you read this). Help us spread the word about the show: gift it to a friend, secret-santa it to your entire following on social media... or why not make a loved one the offering of all the Flatslam in existence (just put the URL into a Christmas card - sure it'll look cheap, but they'll thank you for it eventually).


Check out Elis' rather spartan website (which includes a link to his Radio X podcast with John Robins). And has John's tour, which Elis plugs in the show.

Check out Andy's website and if you fancy going to see his London show (on till January 6th 2018) you can get tickets here at
