The Dollop Live Podcast Tickets
The Dollop Live Podcast TicketsSince 2014, comedians Dave Anthony and Gareth Reynolds have recorded the podcast The Dollop. In each episode, the pair relates the history of a specific person or event in a humorous style. The comedians have since taken the show on the road, recording episodes in front of live audiences. The Dollop has toured the United States as well as Australia and Canada, typically relating stories that have to do with where they are performing the show. They are sometimes joined onstage by other comedians; however, Anthony and Reynolds are always able to carry the show themselves.
History Meets ComedyComedian Dave Anthony began The Dollop to prepare for a one-man standup show he was set to perform at the Melbourne Comedy Festival. He'd already written comedy as well as acted and performed standup. The comedian wanted to share the untold stories of history. In the beginning, only Anthony hosted the podcast. The comedian decided he wanted others to join him on the podcast, and his first guest was Gareth Reynolds. From there, Reynolds became a permanent guest on the show, and the duo continued to entertain their listeners. Anthony reads stories to Reynolds, who has never heard them before. Reynolds reacts and occasionally acts out parts of history. The format worked so well that The Dollop has consistently ranked in iTunes Top 100 podcasts. In 2016, the podcast was also named one of the 50 best podcasts by The Guardian. In fact, the podcast has more than 5 million downloads each month.
