    392B - Jimmy Carr Returns, Live! (Part Two)

    392B - Jimmy Carr Returns, Live! (Part Two)

    In this edited special edition, as Stu interviewed Jimmy live on stage during his “Terribly Funny” tour shows in Manchester, Birmingham and Cardiff, Stu navigates deftly between celebrity anecdotes to push Jimmy into territory which he’s a little less familiar with sharing.
    We talk about how parenthood may or may not change the way Jimmy works; discover what religion gets right about forgiveness; get knee deep in Jimmy's tax affairs; learn about his anxiety disorder; and find out why no-one needs a kid with a C in physics.
    With offensive language from the start. Please bear in mind this is a live performance in front of an audience of Jimmy Carr fans who’ve just enjoyed an hour of his best stuff, so - far more so than usual - this takes place within the sacred circle known as “context”. Please continue at your own risk…

    392A - Jimmy Carr Returns, Live! (Part One)

    He’s back, he’s bad, and he’s pulled off one of the most surprising pivots of the pandemic: writing an incredibly useful and heartfelt self-help book, masquerading as an autobiography!
    In this edited special edition, as Stu interviewed Jimmy live on stage during his “Terribly Funny” tour shows in Manchester, Birmingham and Cardiff, Stu navigates deftly between celebrity anecdotes to push Jimmy into territory which he’s a little less familiar with sharing.
    In part one Jimmy talks about his friend and colleague the late Sean Lock; goes into real detail on his favourite heckles and his strategy for combative comedy roasts; and reveals his deep relationship with his late mother, and how her passing affected the rest of his family.

    391 - Omid Djalili

    391 - Omid Djalili

    Back on tour after a period of self-reflection, comedy powerhouse Omid Djalili is admirably candid as he shares his concerns about the material that made him famous. Taking to heart some stinging criticism from his son, he explores the tension between his phenomenal commitment to live performance and his craving for validation
    We talk about the tendency of white middle-class reviewers to froth at his otherness; whether or not his “everything and the kitchen sink” approach armed them against him; and find out what advice a young Michael McIntyre rejected…
    20 mins of extra content available exclusively to the Insiders Club includes Omid on how Whoopi Goldberg inspired him when they worked together, an amazing true story about his approach to casting directors in the early days of his movie career, and the truth behind his mould-breaking audition for his key role in The Mummy (1999)…
    Go to www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders for this and much more, including the exclusive Insiders Q&As with Nish Kumar, James Acaster and Fern Brady and the incredible “self-help for comedians” special with Amanda Donnet.

    390 - Foil Arms and Hog

    With a dedicated crowd of 650K YouTube subscribers, Foil Arms & Hog are a live sketch act who also do internet videos, and not “YouTubers” like you thought...
    We explore how these lovely men have spent a decade at the Edinburgh Fringe entirely on their own terms, and why they aspire to “Moneyball” but don’t know their arse from their SEO.
    We uncover their creative, scripting and filming processes, examine their position as “permanent underdogs”, and as we dive further into how they pool their personal ambition, we happen upon one of the best thing’s Stu has ever heard…

    40 mins of scorchingly good extra content available exclusively to the Insiders Club includes FA&H sharing their own homemade vocabulary of sketch-writing terms, including “The Matrix’, “The Swan-dive”, “Chris-Rocking” and more! We also cover how they embody the DIY aesthetic regarding management and pitching to people, and Stu forces them to describe each other’s strengths and weaknesses in detail…
    Go to www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders for this and much more, including the exclusive Insiders Q&As with Nish Kumar, James Acaster and Fern Brady and the incredible “self-help for comedians” special with Amanda Donnet.

    389 - Tom Stade Returns

    389 - Tom Stade Returns

    Teetering on the brink of the “elder statesman” phase of his career, masterful comic Tom Stade  reflects on surviving the pandemic due to his strong family unit and his natural impish inclination not to take anything too seriously.
    We talk about the relationship between political correctness and deliberately being inappropriate, hitting critical mass as a touring comic, and the long-term relationship with fans that develops after decades in the business.
    We also discuss his theory that he’s held back professionally by his stoner reputation, unpick whether charisma can be learnt, and for the first time ask “are you ever not happy?”

    388 - NonComPod - Philippa Perry

    388 - NonComPod - Philippa Perry

    Psychotherapist, author, speaker and agony aunt, Philippa Perry graces the show with her extremely funny and invigorating presence!  We talk about her journey into speaking via book tours, and explore the relationship between her authentic self and her performance and therapist voices.
    We also discover how her career in psychotherapy started as a means of coping with her own loneliness with regard to her “role-playing” parents, and learn about her envy when her husband Grayson Perry won the Turner Prize. We also ask whether the adoration of strangers is a lasting solution to the “narcissistic injury” that often sets people on a path to becoming performers…
    20 mins of extras available exclusively to the Insiders Club features Philippa recalling a meeting with Jimmy Carr and an aspect of his social fluidity that left her gobsmacked; how she deals with criticism and trolling; she shares with Stu some of their anxieties about interviewing people; and she helps a bit more with Stu’s concerns about whether his son Boutros will mind being talked about onstage…
     
    Go to www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders for this and much more, including the exclusive Insiders Q&As with Nish Kumar, James Acaster and Fern Brady and the incredible “self-help for comedians” special with Amanda Donnet.

richquick ,

Gold dust if you love comedy

And changed my opinion of Jimmy Carr - or at least massive improved it.

Melania Scrump ,

A must for comedy fans

This is basically the equivalent of required reading for those who love comedy. I binged every episode to get up to date once I found it (quite a feat - it’s a hell of a back catalogue) and only one episode really didn’t float my boat (though I still listened as I didn’t want to miss the post-amble). Can’t recommend it enough!

Mhorn50 ,

Piff the magic dragon

This eps is one true gem of all podcasts, TCC normally deals with stand ups. But this one is exceptional. Really needs a part 2.
