Much-loved Triple J alumni Alex Dyson and Kyran Wheatley have united for a new comedy podcast called Mirth. Alex hosted Breakfast on the national broadcaster from 2010 to 2016, while Kyran also spent several years on the station, most recently on Weekends.
If launching a new podcast wasn’t enough, the duo are also opening a bar in Melbourne to coincide with their live podcast records during the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. You can pop down to have a drink, listen to the record and hear from some of the funny guests joining Alex and Kyran throughout the festival at the BOB Bar, located at 240 Collins Street, Melbourne.
If you’re still unsure of what the podcast is about, this description should help clear things up – “Alex Dyson and Kyran Wheatley try to create a comedy podcast devoid of faff and untainted by triviality, and miss by a long shot. Like, not even close. But they do have interviews with cool people.”
