10 Podcasts To Make You Laugh

Don’t say it, don’t say it, don’t say it… IT’S BEEN A BIG YEAR. Sorry, couldn’t help it.

In our defence though, it has been a big year, hot on the heels of a number of other big years. Which is why, right about now, we find ourselves turning to the comfort of comedy podcasts to make us laugh.

The good news is that we have plenty of those here at LiSTNR. So, without further ado, here are 10 podcasts to make you laugh.

Hamish & Andy

C’mon, as if we were going to compile a list of podcasts to make you laugh and NOT start with Hamish & Andy. Hamish Blake and Andy Lee continue to taunt each other and their button-pusher Jack with a weekly show that’s more about their listeners than it is about themselves.

Bonus: There’s a 240-episode back catalogue to plug in to. That should keep you busy/ entertained/ laughing.

The Aunty Donna Podcast

The description for The Aunty Donna Podcast reads “Comedy the whole family can enjoy.” This is a lie.

The Australian comedy trio – you might recognise them for their “Always Room for Christmas Pud” skit – host a weekly podcast that has its own cinematic universe.

Do we understand every single thing that happens? No. But we’re happy everyone is having fun.

Brydon &

Rob Brydon, the Welsh comedian and actor most known for his The Trip series and Gavin and Stacey, has somehow found the time to sit down and record his own podcast. The latest seasons features a rotating cast of guests including Harry Hill, Ben Elton, Julia Davis and Brydon’s The Trip co-star Steve Coogan, who pop by for “terrific conversation”.

It’s a Lot with Abbie Chatfield

She’s the reality TV queen, entrepreneur and chronic over-sharer who ensures that nary a week goes by without some kind of tale to have us screaming with laughter. And then shock. And then back to laughter.

Alongside tackling the deep stuff – from abandonment issues and mental health to important social discourse around feminism and politics – Abbie dishes up a healthy dose of sex tips, bad dating stories and interviews with some of the most funny, interesting people you know.

We’re recommend dipping a toe into a Nightmare Fuel to start with; you’ll HOWL.

The Betoota Advocate Podcast

You’d be hard-pushed to find a single Australian who hasn’t felt directly targeted by at least one post by The Betoota Advocate. Now, editors of the explicitly raw but iconic Outback Australian newspaper Clancy Overell and Errol Parker, bring their fierce reporting to a twice-weekly podcast.

Sooshi Mango

A podcast not about meatballs, brought to you by the Sooshi Mango boys: Carlo Salanitri, Joe Salanitri and Andrew Manfre. Alongside comedy segments, prank calls and a lot of shit-talking, the trio also bring in a whole lot of celebrity guests, including Matt Preston – who calls Italian food out as a lie – Steven Bauer and Mark Bouris.

Your Mom’s House

Christina Pazsitzky and Tom Segura – you know him from 2 Bears, 1 Cave – are comedians who are also married. In this scenario, they are the Mommies and they welcome you to join them.

Speaking of mothers, some of the best episodes are the ones featuring Tom’s own mother, Charo, including this episode from earlier this year.

Everyone Relax

You: “Everyone Relax? What’s that, I’ve never heard of it before?”

Us: “It’s the new home of all things Wil Anderson and Charlie Clausen!”

TOFOP, Wilosophy and 2 Guys, 1 Cup now live under the same roof, which makes it all the easier to enjoy all of your favourite podcasts from Wil and Charlie.

Start with the pair’s 500th episode, which sees special guest Russell Crowe finally appear on the podcast to give his opinion on the name TOFOP.

That’s Enough Already with Urzila Carlson

South African-born, New Zealand comedian and actress Urzila Carlson understands that everyone has at least one thing that “shits us to death”.

So what’s your thing?

“From Covid-deniers to people who don’t give way in traffic, this is a show about the morons who make the world a worse place, and Urzila and her guests are prepared to name and shame them all.”

Smartless

Actors Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes and Will Arnett have teamed up for the smash-hit podcast that now boasts 190-odd episodes, a six-episode documentary style special and a live podcast tour.

Each episode sees one of the hosts reveal a mystery guest to the other two hosts, ensuring an authentic, off-the-cuff conversation every time.

And with names like Seth Rogen, Will Ferrell, Maya Rudolph and Sarah Silverman, this needs to go right to the top of your list of podcasts to make you laugh.
