Gavin starring in David Mamet play “Speed the Plow”

by on Apr.01, 2015, under Newspost


Sooooo, one of the reasons that we’ve not done a podcast recently is because Gavin is working his ass off on a number of projects, one of which is a production of “Speed The Plow“, a play by David Mamet.

The production is being staged at Pentas 2  at the KL Performing Arts Centre (KL PAC)  from 9-15th April.

Shows are on @ 8:30pm on the 9th-15th April, with a 3pm matinee on the 12th April.

There is no Show on the 13th April

FAT PIG! (Live in Singapore!)

by on Feb.20, 2014, under Newspost

For those of you wondering why there hasn’t been a podcast for a while the reason is two-fold:

1) Gavin has finally finished rehearsals and can now be found treading the boards nightly at the DBS Arts Centre, Singapore, performing in Pangdemonium’s production of Neil La Bute’s Fat Pig. The show runs until 2nd March 2014 so if you are around Singapore I highly recommend you catch Gavin in the flesh, so to speak.

Tickets are available at the Sistic website here : and here’s a quick Youtube clip if you want a taste.


2) Gavin’s most recent stand-in just had a baby so that put the end to that!!

If you’ve got a love of movies, a decent microphone, PC and internet connection and feel like filling in for Gavin, hit me up at [email protected], on Twitter at, or using the ‘Contact Us’ form here 0n the site and we’ll see about setting up a show!

This could be a bold new experiment!!

A film By Gavin Yap

by on Jan.23, 2014, under Newspost

As Gavin is away in Singapore rehearsing for a play, we’ve not yet had time to record our first podcast of 2014 , but rest assured, plans are afoot to remedy this.

In the meantime here’s a quick update on Gavin’s film, yes, GAVIN’S FILM.

As regular listeners should know, last year Gavin directed his first feature film called “Take me To Dinner” (I’m also in the film, albeit in the background briefly in one scene) and it’s finally opening in selected GSC cinemas in Malaysia on 13th March 2014!

A darkly comic romantic drama, here’s the trailer to whet your appetite

…and look! Incontrovertible PROOF that Gavin directed it! Look at those hands!


In the run up to the release the production team have also been releasing some (pretty funny) behind the scenes featurettes,I’ve included the  the first two at the bottom of this post, however there’ll be more to come so if you want to see them all then subscribe to the “Take Me to Dinner” page on your social media platform of choice:

Tumblr –

Twitter –

Youtube –


Here’s the featurettes, I’ll add the others as they are released:

The Emperor

Loki is not best pleased with this lack of podcast

Loki is not best pleased with this lack of podcast

As you may has noticed there hasn’t been a podcast since last week’s Avengers cast.

This is because a) we’re still reeling from that cinematic onslaught & b) Gavin’s been busy “shaping and directing” this year’s The Platform production The Emperor at the KL Performing Arts Centre. Full details here but if you wanna catch it you’ll have to hurry, shows finish 12th May!

Once again we’ll try and get back to a regular status once Gavin stops being so damn popular, or my dastardly plans come to fruition. What plans? That would be telling…

So Where is this Week’s Podcast?

by on Apr.23, 2012, under Newspost

Derek had the distinct feeling the interior decorator was taking the piss with his latest "creation"

Due to scheduling conflicts I’m afraid that there’s no podcast this week, but we’ll make up for it next week which should be our MIGHTY AVENGERS-CAST!  (knowing us it should  be about 6 hours long!)

It’s proably a good thing as my review was going to be The Cabin in the Woods, one of the most difficult films  to review without spoiling it, EVER.  All I can say about it is, if you enjoyed and laughed at Scream , The Evil Dead films, Freddy, and Jason,  etc.  you’ll definitely get a kick out of it and should go see it now!

Seriously go see it and support smart, funny cinema!

Until next week…EXCELSIOR!!

We’re not “Lost”

by on Feb.16, 2012, under Newspost

Not Penny's boat

We're totally not trapped on an island with a smoke monster...honest

We’ve just been very,very naughty…I mean busy. My new job is giving me headaches and Gavin, well Gavin just finished a restaging of “Someone to Watch over me” in KL and is now in Penang with the show (more info at and it just wouldn’t seem right to record show number 99 & 100 without him, so I hope you can bear the wait until he returns for the next slice of “fried gold”.

We may even have some very special  guests for #100, who knows…

Stay tuned!


we’ve just been very very naught.. I mean busy

Seasons Greetings! The podcast is fixed!

Gosling descending a staircase

'twas the night before Christmas....

Yes, we’re finally back again with a podcast and I’m very,very happy to say that we have FINALLY sorted out all the technical issues that we’ve been having since our um, “studio’s refurbishment”. Apologies again for the issues on the last two but we really are back to the same audio quality as we once had (pity the content doesn’t match). But enough about the past, let’s look to the future, which seem to be exactly what the movie studios want you to do, judging by the absolute deluge of trailers we’ve seen over the last few weeks for 2012 releases.  As usual I’ve listed them all below so you can “watch along with Mc & Yap”. Also on this week’s show we finally have reviews of the 2011 re-quel of “The Thing”, Seth Rogen & Jospeh Gordon Levitt’s cancer drama “50/50”, “The Muppets” and “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol” in which I am reliably informed Tom Cruise is AWESOME.

All of us here at McYapandFries would like to thanks you for listening and wish you and yours the very best this holiday season.

“God bless us every one”

We’ve Gone on Holiday by Mistake….again!

by on Sep.29, 2011, under Newspost

Are you the farmer? Have you heard this joke before?

Well shiiit, looks like we’ve missed our window of opportunity with the podcast again.

Gavin’s had to go “away” for a while for “help”..I mean “work” and it was my “birthday” last week so our already erratic schedule has been truly thrown off it’s axis.

We’re looking into options to get you a podcast soon (Especially now that “Drive”  and “Killer Elite” are coming out) so please bear with us and we’ll get right back to you as soon as we can.
