We adore Mike Myers' first book, Canada. Part memoir part historical document by Canada's proudest son. We share highlights including his first encounter with Gilda Radner, the journey to the first Wayne's World sketch and fears of a Myers curse are reignited when we learn about his run in with a Satanic cult. 

Alexei's hosting Green Lights Comedy Nights 31st March with Headliner John Conway! $10 at the door, 8pm at The Gaelic Club, Surry Hills, Sydney! RSVP HERE

We've tracked down a copy of "Austin Powers' Electric Pussycat Swingers Club", the lost television special filmed for MTV to promote the release of the original Austin Powers groovy movie. Austin plays host to a shagadelic party of swingers with a Laugh-In style show full of 1997 nostalgia.

Goldmember may just be the most iconic of Mike Myers' films and one episode was not enough to cover it all. Now that we're back in Sydney we've once again enlisted the help of our brave friends Michael Hing and Tom Walker to find out what's it all about and why daddy wasn't there. 

PLUS a little bonus mini interview with comedy legend Scott Aukerman conducted by our dear friend Eddie Sharp! Scott Aukerman plays the back of a young Michael Caine for one second in Goldmember.

The most disturbing film in the Mike Myers Cinematic Universe has to be the ill-advised live action adaptation of Dr Seuss' beloved children's book The Cat in the Hat.

We always had a feeling that AUSTIN POWERS IN GOLDMEMBER would be the most controversial film in Mike Myers history. But we were unsure if it is was the horniest. We're joined by gold loving mates MICHEAL HING & TOM WALKER to analyze the so far final cinematic entry in the Austin Powers franchise and the movie that made Beyonce a star.

#2024. The year Kanye West has teased he will run for President of the United States of America. His first political steps were right beside Mike Myers (Austin Powers, Shreck) at A Concert for Hurricane Relief, a live 2005 telethon to raise funds for those affected by Hurricane Katrina. We're joined by comedian and writer James Colley to talk about one of the most iconic moments in Mike history.

Impression theft. Diva behaviour. Feuds with Dana Carvey!

Mike's Tykes are in damage control this week as not one but TWO news stories have broken within the week that slander the good name of Mike Myers. Cam & Lex bring in the comedy powers of character genius, Tom Walker (good comedian, actor, Whose Line Is It Anyway? Aus) to wade through the controversies, and help clear Mike's name.

Two comedians go through the films of comedy legend Mike Myers just to check if they're good or not. 

Wil Anderson joins us to reassess the cult classic "SO I MARRIED AN AXE MURDERER", the one film so far that we've yet to come to a conclusion on. Will Cameron finally get that this is one of Mike's great works and restore Alexei's mojo?

In 1998, Mike Myers removed his comedy mask and placed on the mask of tragedy one more time for the Irish Drama "PETE'S METEOR" also starring Brenda Fricker, Alfred Molina and a trio of insufferable child actors. This is the only example of a Mike Myers film that we know absolutely nothing about. There is no information about this film at all. Is it because it is bad? Yes. 

We're joined by comedian, actor and confirmed Wayniac LAURA HUGHES to get us through this truly upsetting journey. 

Laura Hughes stars in Australian Action/Comedy "THE TAIL JOB". It is a seriously funny and compelling film directed by Bryan Moses & Daniel Millar also starring our very own Craig Anderson + some of the funniest Aussie Comedy people. FanForce Screenings around Australia NOW

The year was 1998. Mike Myers was the biggest comedy star in the world but that wasn't enough. Mike swung for the stars and tried his hand at serious dramatic acting portraying the real life impresario of Studio 54, Steve Rubell, in Mark Christopher's "54: The Director's Cut". We're joined by master comedian Adam Richard to find out if this really is a forgotten gay classic or just a movie that left us flaccid (unhorny, baby).

Mike Myers created the most shagadelic super-spy with Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery. An iconic character in an iconic comedy. The film oozes with 60s style informing the relentless hilarity of this comedy. We seek to find out why this is one of the grooviest movies in cinematic history and hope to answer that age old question: Do I make you horny, baby?

Who better to join us this week than comedian CLINTON HAINES (Raw Comedy Runner-Up 2016). This is his happening and it freaks us out!!!
