The first rule of Fan Club is… tell everyone you know about it because we need the listeners.
Comedians Nick Helm and Nathaniel Metcalfe are fans of stuff. Weird stuff. Mainstream stuff. Niche stuff. Stuff. They remember the 80’s because they lived the 80’s. Nick is an Alice Cooper obsessed, Bobble-Head collecting, film fanatic and Nathaniel works in a comic shop and listens to Anthony Newly records. They have lived a life on the fringes of society, shunned by the mainstream as they have meticulously obsessed over things that no one else cares about, but now we’re living in an age where everything is nostalgic. Star Wars. Tony The Tiger. Even Furbees. They’ve waited all their lives for a platform and this is their time. Join them and a special guest every Friday afternoon as they talk about current trends, classic films, favourite bands and retro toys.
It’s like the opposite of Room 101 where guests root through the attics of their minds to discuss anything from forgotten Saturday morning cartoons, abandoned theme parks or breakfast cereal characters whilst Nick and Nathaniel try and understand where their passion comes from.
In this ramshackle, helter-skelter hour filled with tangents and off topic diatribes, Nick and Nathaniel try to keep the show on track as they wade through passionate fan chats, play obscure cover versions and force special guests to play Nathaniel Metcalfe’s legendary Game Show ‘Better or Worse’
