Description

From seagulls to Shakespeare, from daddy problems to dog podcasts, join Ethan Madds and Emerson Young on a magical mystery meander along the scenic route through their weird-yet-wonderful worldviews, in this uproarious, unpredictable celebration of neurodivergent minds and experiences. It's safe to say no two of these shows will be the same – but however chaotic the journey, the destination will always be hilarious! 'Ethan Madds didn't just raise the roof, he took it home with him too' (Wreck The Mic Comedy). 'Emerson Young is sweet and occasionally filthy, which is a killer combo' (Scotsman).
