Show details:


Sunday 26 March 2017

The host of Spicks and Specks and ABC3’s Stand and Deliver, Josh Earl brings you a brand new show about a small town, a big problem and the creativity of a kind boy who brings them all together.

Meet a Dad obsessed with toilets, a Mum too lazy to walk up the stairs to her treadmill and a librarian who is more interested in laminating signs than reading books. And then there is Oliver.

“Oliver James lived right in the middle of Greyston Road. Not right in the middle of the road, that would be very bad planning, and quite dangerous, but off to the side of the road, next to the footpath. In a house. House 145 to be exact. Oliver lived there with his parents, whose names were Mum and Dad (they had other names, real names, but they never told him what they were and as Oliver was taught in school not to ask questions he didn’t know what there real names were, and besides, when he said “Mum” or “Dad”, they always answered)”.

A heart-warming story full of songs, silliness and a hundred tiny teddy bears.

“Josh Earl is really funny, and when I say ‘really funny’ I don’t just mean ‘really funny’, I mean really REALLY funny”
– Andy Griffiths author of The Day My Bum Went Psycho, The 13 Story Treehouse series (pretty much every book your kid likes)

“4 and a half stars, Hilarious and lovely”
