The Inverse Delirium is a comedy podcast released by Geoffrey Welchman.
“A humorous take on public radio and life in this American Baltimore, created by Geoffrey Welchman. For fans of Monty Python, Firesign Theater, Word Jazz, Lily Tomlin, the Goon Show, and comedians like Dave Chapelle, Patton Oswalt, and Maria Bamford.” is the blurb for this podcast, and being a fan of Monty Python and the Goon Show I am inclined to agree.
This podcast is a real mix of comedy ideas and sketches, you have no idea what will appear next, which was one of the things I liked about Python.
As with all comedy what works for someone does not work for another. However, I have found all the shows funny, there may be the odd “ho-hum” moment, but generally I am laughing or enjoying the weirdness of the ideas in the sketch.
The podcast has excellent presentation with other voice actors and sound effects. The anchor man manages to keep the straight man rule running through out the podcast.
On the upside:
- Lots of Laughs.
- Some great comedy moments, like the assault rifle armed Walrus.
- Great presentation.
- There is even “hidden” comedy in the sound effects.
On the downside:
- May be a little “high brow” at times, but wasn’t Monty Python?
- Some “what the ….” moments.
Overall, this is a very good podcast, and is well worth subscribing to for a regular comedy fix. If you like your comedy “a little off the wall” this will suit you down to the ground.
