JQ is an average man with an above average ambition, to become a standup comedian! In each episode I'll be talking to new comedians, comedians who haven't performed yet and hopefully to some well established acts. I hope to extract as much info as I can out of everyone, and leave them as an empty husk.

Good insight into the open mic world

As an open mic act of nearly 2 years this is a really interesting podcast for me. Gives a good insight into the open mic circuit us newbies are in (and hoping to one day to step up from!). Have to say that eating during a podcast is unforgivable though!!! Especially as 90% of people probably listen on headphones...anyway keep up the good work!
