    344 - Archie Maddocks

    Stand-up comic and award-nominated playwright Archie Maddocks loves stitching together routines about kebab shops and his "rough-arse" schooling, with pathos and evocative prose. We talk about writing for the comedy club and the stage, why he's the straight-man to his highly-strung family of actors, and how his play "A Place For We" has been put on hiatus by Covid-19. We also talk about how his show "Matchstick" concluded with a heartfelt examination of the Grenfell Tower fire, and why he feels that "we're not people that ever cry".


    You can donate to support survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire here www.grenfellfoundation.org.uk/


    20 minutes of extra content available exclusively to members of the Insiders Club include Archie's thoughts on why white audiences don't accept surrealism from Black comics, and how his opening line takes back control of people's preconceptions. Go to www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders for this and much much more.

    343 - Nigel Ng

    Lean as hell and twice as productive, Nigel Ng is coming to shame your work ethic with his radical efficiency! This hilarious UK-based Malaysian comic lets us in on how his background in data science is helping him hit hard on social media, why he knew Edinburgh reviewers wouldn't like him, why he doesn't know what "texture" means, and what it felt like to gig 5 hours after a huge personal catastrophe. But is he too efficient for his own personal life...?


    Join the Insiders Club for bonus material including Nigel on the specifics of his Instagram and TikTok strategies... Miss it and miss out! Sign up now at www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders for all of the above and much more.

    342 - Catherine Cohen

    342 - Catherine Cohen

    Catherine Cohen took home “Best Newcomer” at the Edinburgh Fringe last year, with a jaw-dropping show bursting with wit, originality and layer upon layer of irony.  Her angle of attack, mocking the audience for being so pathetically in love with her, allows her to take huge risks on stage, in a character that was grown through vast quantities of just the right sort of stage time.


    We talk about why she loves the occasional “stone-faced” audience-member, about playing to win and succeeding, surviving burn-out, and why she can’t stop “freaking out about absolutely everything”…

    340 - Pope Lonergan

    340 - Pope Lonergan

    An intriguing and invigorating "NonComPod" this week with comedian, care home assistant and indeed care home comedian Pope Lonergan. Impressively erudite, Pope has been addicted to drugs as well as to reading about the Hawaiian judicial system; we discuss his lifelong search for transcendence, whether drug-fuelled revelations of great artists count, and how to inhabit the present.

    339 - Brett Goldstein

    339 - Brett Goldstein

    At last! Brett Goldstein (movie star, comedian, writer, super-fan of ComCom and perpetual invite-swerver) drops by for a “NonComPod” that won’t expose at all how crackers he is. Sadly Stu can’t help himself and it all goes a bit “Are You Happy?” A brilliant conversation with a kind, funny, deeply handsome man, who lets us into his mind to discuss humility, boredom and workaholism - and why the comedy community is like an AIDS quilt...




    25 mins of extra content available exclusively to members of the Insiders Club include the backstage view of Brett’s “Films To be Buried With” podcast, how a run of terrible gigs way back during the Comedy Reserve fringe line-up show became a brutal bootcamp, and a decent chunk of Stu giving Brett unsolicited advice on how to navigate his mental health…

StellMir ,

The best podcast ever made

Ok, the best podcast ever made might be a little hyperbolic - I haven’t listened to every podcast ever made so I can’t be objective. BUT, it’s up there. Stuart is affable and calm, which makes him the perfect interviewer. He is funny but not domineering, a trait I’ve noticed in podcasts hosted by comedians that want to be the centre of attention. What is so superb about this series is it’s ability to take you behind the facade of both performer and person. If, like me, you have experience performing (comedy or otherwise) it is technically helpful. However, I feel that even if you can’t engage with it in that way because you are not a performer, the conversations also touch upon so many aspects of human nature, our relationships and the world around us that the conversations Stu facilitates are just generally fascinating insight to people and how we think/behave.

Great job Stuart

Lots of great guests and Stuart is top interviewer.

A great comedian interviewing some great comedians

I love this podcast. Goldsmith is a really thoughtful interviewer and I like his broad range of guests. Incidentally, what I didn’t know til recently is that he’s a hilariously funny stand-up himself; I recently took my nieces to a Comedy Club 4 Kids show and he had everybody in the room, from children to adults, in pain from laughing so hard.
