At the start of 2020 a group of mates got back together in a pub, a familiar setting for them, to reminisce about their misspent youth in the mid-noughties. Two sat in front of a camera enjoying a couple of pints and a random, meandering chat ensued, as one would commonly expect in this scenario.
This was how one of the UK’s top comedy podcasts started – Two Pints with Will & Ralf. We had no idea what would happen in the immediate aftermath of that first shoot, but as the world slowed down due to the pandemic our output ramped up. The series of recordings that followed, performed on Zoom and latterly in-person, has now delivered a cumulative 60 million views across all platforms, 3 million audio downloads and a sold out 17-date live tour.
Two Pints with Will & Ralf has been a fun-filled first foray into finding and growing a podcast audience. We also found and engaged the sponsors and tested a variety of different ways of delivering content to promote the brand across the social media landscape. This whole hugely successful endeavour has helped us sharpen skills we now apply to our work with brand clients, and it’s been a thoroughly enjoyable journey with good friends. But the most fun part is…we’re just getting started! Watch this space for more fun from Two Pints.
