Event Details

Sam Thompson and Pete Wicks are thrilled to announce they will be taking their chart-topping podcast Staying Relevant on tour in April 2024, heading to Birmingham on Sunday 14 April!

Listeners will get the chance to join Sam and Pete in their weekly quest for fame as they continue to explore what it really takes to stay relevant. During the show, as well as learning first-hand about the perils and pitfalls of fame from two best friends in the industry, there will be plenty of interactive moments including the “Vault”, where some clips of Pete’s questionable opinions may be revealed to the audience. There will also be a new spin-off from the podcast’s popular “Sidebar of Shame” called “The Seat Of Shame” giving members of the audience a chance to go on stage to share their “Seat Of Shame” moment.

After countless conversations about what it really takes to maintain fame for the long run, Staying Relevant was launched by Pete and Sam in 2022. The award-nominated podcast has recently celebrated over 5 million downloads and has hit (and held) the coveted No.#1 Comedy chart spot on numerous occasions.

So, the venues are booked, the fridge is stocked with beer (for Pete) and Peperami (for Sam), and the format has been carefully planned… on the back of a napkin. Expect plenty of laughs but mostly utter chaos as the boys look back at their careers and share their hopes and dreams for a future of superstardom.

Guidance: 18+
