What makes a stand up comedian tick? How do they handle heckles and bad gigs? Are they brave or just mal adjusted individuals? And what makes them want to do this impossible job in the first place?
Join Nathan Cassidy, stand up comedian and BA Sci in Psychology – a first from Bristol University – as he delves into the dark recesses of the comedian’s psyche in Psycomedy.
Psycomedy has charted in India, Iceland, Macau, Singapore, Mongolia, France, Ireland, the UK, and was briefly number one in Argentina!
'There are plenty of laddish comedy podcasts out there with blokes laughing a bit too loudly at each other. This, thankfully, isn't one of them. It's thoughtful, sensitive, and also funny! Nathan is a cracking host who listens carefully and only interjects to steer conversation to deeper, more interesting elements of what it takes to be a comic.' BBC Radio.
