A brand-new comedy podcast is about to launch with a format unlike any you’ve heard before.
Every day for a month, The Faces At The Window will release new sketches and songs that will take the listener on a comic journey through a strange land. Like a drone hovering over Britain, the Faces will zoom in on the quirky characters and surreal happenings that make up everyday life in this fantasia.
It’s a world in which a soul-crushing trip to the jobcentre can give way to tuneful dispatches about uncles with lengthy catamarans, in which an old soak from Llangennith wrote the original script for Hitchcock’s Psycho and the best place to obtain advice on growing cabbages is looking down the wrong end of a twelve-bore. Every day, there’ll be a crazy new character or situation to discover.
Over the course of 31 days, three hours of content will become available for free-to-listen download – the equivalent of a six-part TV series. An episode every day to liven up your daily routine, for a whole month. The episodes will be available via podcast platforms such as Podbean, Stitcher, Spotify and Google Podcasts, as well as YouTube, Soundcloud and the Faces’ own website, thefacesatthewindow.com. Listeners who wish to support the show can donate via Patreon.com.
The series launches in May 2019. And the team are already writing Series Two (soon to be crowdfunded. Check out some of the sketches and songs from the upcoming series below:

The style of the sketches is often edgy, but any that feature very dark content or bad language will carry a warning.
