The Mediocre Show is an American parody talk radio broadcast, created by Eric Tomorrow in 2005. It has a network of family, personal friends, and listeners on whom Eric relies for content via regular appearances on the show.
The show has several recurring features, including toy collecftor chat, fine and simple foods discussions, toasts, and MySpace music selections.
During the live broadcast, listeners are invited to call in to the live line , use facebook chat notifications or leave voicemails.
The Mediocre Show started in summer 2005 as a way for Eric Tomorrow to promote his upstart BMX clothing line, Mediocre Clothing. After recording the first episode by himself with Apple GarageBand, he decided he needed a full-time co-host and asked Taylor Ramsauer to join him. The partnership continued through episode 107, when Ramsauer left the show to tour with the bands Napalm Death and 36 Crazyfists. Following his departure, Matt Kittensparks joined the show after being on a few episodes as a guest.
In episode 216, Tomorrow brought a faux radio consultant on the show to find ways to improve the listener base of the show, as well as quality. Over the course of episodes 216 and 217, Matt removed himself from the show, citing privacy-related concerns. Eric continued doing a few episode with random guests, including The Lady Tomorrow, Travis, Nate the Beard, and Tha Mike (a.k.a. Mike Pilot). When Mike hosted, Eric offered him the open co-host chair. Having just left his former podcast, The Awful Show, Mike accepted the position.
Mike Pilot later joined as co-host, and Hope was given her own segment on the show.
Jeff Futzer produced the pig milking video available on Youtube.com and assisted with the successful live show in Salt Lake City.
Since then in July 2015, Work Frank joined as co-host, A jovial, anxiety ridden, drinker of many beers and chef quality food production, and lovable saucy rogue. And lover of the Star War. Frank works at the same company as Eric at Happy Fun Time. Frank's estate has two kitchens and a barn on lush acres. He is a trick or treat enthusiast, giving generous candies to the children.
Often joined by Patt Kitt, lover of fairly bland foods, that will try anything culinary, but hater of mayonnaise, all white sauces and spices, like ground pepper. Patt endured a horrible shop class saw accident in high school losing the end of his finger. The finger tip was sewn onto his chest as a blood source until the surgeon could reattach it. Thus his school mates called him Patty Finger Chest. Patt has annunciation issues when he has to think and talk and this provides many hilarious moments, luckily he is a good sport about it.
Again, Jeff Futzer does a lot to support this show.
Eric Tomorrow is doing his best to have a large family and last year obtained a monster jeep. This said the show has grow up to a fairly responsible, and still humorous version, that is still going strong.
Some say this is the highest quality humor the show has ever been.
The hosts, all of whom use pseudonyms, include:
And Patt or Part Kitt.
