Welcome to Discharge.

Welcome to Discharge.

Hey! Remember us? We were best friends until you started wearing make-up and got really into boys and we took a hiatus from doing podcasts and completely missed our supposed comeback date. Well, we’re back, and ready to make you realise you did miss us after all!

We know it isn’t September 22nd, and we know we’ve been away for far too long. However, it’s all been worth it, because there are some big changes taking place around here. A few are very obvious. Look at this new website! All sexy and yellow, like Lisa Simpson in that one internet video we wish we’d never watched. Hopefully you’ll find browsing it a more friendly, pleasant, and yellow experience than before. You want to just see the articles we’ve written about Politics? Just click the Politics tab. You want to check if we consider knife fighting a sport? Have a look at the unsurprisingly content-light Sports tab! We do, by the way, and if only our gym felt the same we might still be allowed to see our kids.

We’re also delighted to announce that we’re bringing on board frequent contributor, unrivaled Scandinavian visionary Jorben Bowen. On the site from now on, you’ll be able to find brand new poetry, prose and other works of unabashed genius from the man they call “Literally the best writer to ever write more than six words”. The first from Jorben will be going up later this week, and you can keep your eyes peeled for a brand new novella, to be published chapter-by-chapter here on the Discharge website. It’s how Dickens would publish his work if he was alive now.


There’s also the small matter of the name. We ain’t answering to ‘Verbal Discharge’ any more. Like an edgy kid dropping his parent’s pet name, we’re now just going by ‘Discharge’. Except for the podcast, which we’ll probably still call Verbal Discharge, because that actually makes sense. Really, if you think about it, we should have done this ages ago. And if you do call us Verbal in the street, we’ll probably still turn around, and not just because we’re Kevin Spacey’s character in The Usual Suspects.

We also have the small matter of an upcoming live show. In just one month and one day, Discharge shall descend on The Cross Keys in Nottingham for our Review of the Year special, as part of Nottingham Comedy Festival. The show is going to see us tackle the biggest events of the year, as we try to make light of Planet Earth’s steady slide towards the apocalypse. We’ll be sharing more about the show over the next few weeks, but in the meantime you can make it look like you’re interested in coming on Facebook to make us feel good about ourselves putting on a well-anticipated show. We also have another very exciting live show-related announcement to hopefully make very soon, just to be a tease. If you do want to know these things as they happen, we have a brand new newsletter, which you can sign up for with the form down the right-hand side of this page. We promise we won’t spam your inbox. Well, only when it’s actually important.

It’s no secret that the last few months have been something of a period of transition for Discharge, and we’re very grateful to everyone who had stuck by us over the gap. This is the start of a new, exciting and very yellow era for Discharge. The podcasts may not be as frequent, and the videos may trickle out slowly, but we intend to continue producing the best comedy content we can, and doing it as frequently as we can. Expect written articles, thrilling advise guides, endless Jorben masterpieces, a few videos we recorded a while ago and never put out, and much, much more. Expect lots of much, much more, and we’ll do our best to deliver. It’s good to be back.

You look far better with less make-up on, by the way. The way you do it now really brings out your eyes.
