NINE BEHIND THE SCENES FACTS FROM THE STIFFYS’ SHOW

1. WE WERE NOT ACTUALLY ENDORSED BY ANY OF THOSE COMPANIES

WE WERE JUST USING OUR TALKSHOW PLATFORM TO GIVE THOSE BRANDS A LEG UP IT’S PART OF OUR AGGRESSIVE MARKETING APPROACH AND ‘FORGIVENESS IS EASIER THAN PERMISSION’ ETHOS WE DEFINITELY DIDN’T RUN ANY OF THIS BY PONCHO.

2. THAT WAS NOT A REAL BERTOCCHI HAM IN THE FIRST EPISODE

THAT WAS ACTUALLY OUR FRIEND MATT FAZIO DRESSED UP IN A HAM COSTUME WE MADE THAT OURSELVES WELL ACTUALLY OUR PRODUCER MATT MADE THAT AND BLAKE FROM THE PEEP TEMPEL WASN’T THAT COMFORTABLE WITH IT



3. WE FILMED A FEW EPISODES ON THE SAME DAY

AND DRINKING A LOT OF PASSION POP ON SET SO THAT’S WHY WE’RE GETTING QUITE SLURRY TOWARDS THE END OF THE SEASON TO BE HONEST WE’RE A BIT SLURRY FROM EPISODE TWO YOU CAN SEE IT IN OUR INTERVIEW WITH MP FIONA PATTEN SHE WAS PRETTY FINE WITH IT.

4. EPISODE FOUR CAPTURES THE FIRST TIME ADAM HAD EVER DRUNK VODKA BEFORE
IT WAS A BIT OF SHOCK TO HIS SYSTEM HE HAS NOT DRUNK IT AGAIN SINCE THEN

5. DESPITE OUR CORDIAL RELATIONSHIP ON SCREEN THERE WAS ACTUALLY A BIT OF TENSION BETWEEN US AND THE WRITING STAFF

I THINK THEY WERE A BIT UNPROFESSIONAL TO BE HONEST THEY DIDN’T SEEM TO HAVE A LOT OF EXPERIENCE WORKING WITH ROCK AND ROLL MUSICIANS AND THE DRINKS WE NEED AS PART OF OUR PROCESS

6. WE’D ACTUALLY HAD A LOT OF DRINKS BEFORE FILMING THE HOUSE BAND SCENES
ALTHOUGH YOU WOULDN’T KNOW IT FROM OUR PITCH PERFECT PERFORMANCE WE’D BEEN HANGING OUT AT THE BIRMINGHAM HOTEL WAITING FOR THE CROWD TO SHOW UP BUT DIDN’T REALISE THEY ALL AROUND US AND WAITING FOR US TO LEAVE



7. OUR WRITING TEAM IS AN ALL-STAR CAST

IT INCLUDES OUR GUITARIST DEV

DAN HAWKINS FROM TWIN BEASTS

DALE BARTLETT FROM MIGHTIEST OF GUNS

KATE DEHNERT THE FAMOUS COMEDIAN

AND OUR HEAD WRITER JIM YOUNG WHO IS A GREAT COMEDY GUY

JAMES FITZPATRICK WASN’T ON THE WRITING TEAM BUT YOU CAN SEE HIM IN ALL OF THE BAND SHOTS MIXING ALL THE SOUND

8. PONCHO HAD TO PAY A HUGE DRY CLEANING BILL AFTER WE WERE DONE

MAINLY BECAUSE OF THE DRINKS ADAM’S SCIENCE EXPERIMENT ADAM’S COOKING SEGMENT AND ADAM VOMITING EVERYWHERE



9. GAZ OUR MAN ON THE GROUND IS A TRUE PROFESSIONAL

WHILE MANY PEOPLE KNOW GAZ FROM HIS CULT GOON BASED ROCK AND ROLL BAND KEGGIN HE’S ACTUALLY THE BEST MAN ON THE GROUND IN THE BUSINESS AND A VERY TOUGH NEGOTIATOR.

8. PONCHO APPROACHED US ABOUT THIS TALKSHOW OFF THE BACK OF OUR POKEMON GO VIDEO GOING VIRAL
WE MAY HAVE LED THEM TO BELIEVE THAT ALL OF OUR VIDEOS ARE THAT SUCCESSFUL

9. COLD CALLING BIG NAME GUESTS THROUGH TWITTER IS NOT VERY EFFECTIVE
BUT LUCKILY PONCHO WERE ABLE TO LAND SOME GREAT GUESTS INDEPENDENT OF OUR EFFORTS
