    Stand and Deliver podcast episode 25 Arna Spek + Iszi Lawrence

    A two guest bumper edition of the podcast. With the comedy scene on hold, we catch up with comic, Radio 4 history boffin and author Iszi Lawrence. We find out to see how she is managing to keep active during lockdown.







    Our second guest is Arna Spek. Originally from the Netherlands, Arna makes dry, self-deprecating observations about London life and odd British behaviour from the perspective of a confused and bumbling outsider.







    Arna talks about: starting out at school review shows in the Netherlands, Studying comedy at Kent University, can comedy be taught?, performing in Dutch to an English speaking audience, forgetting your jokes, working in a museum, getting a harsh review, how comedy is different in the Netherlands, juggling standup and having a child + lots more.

    Stand and Deliver Podcast episode 23 Colt Cabana

    Stand and Deliver Podcast episode 23 Colt Cabana

    For the last 20 years Colt Cabana has travelled around the world as a professional wrestler. His hybrid comedic style along with his in ring skills have made Colt one of the most in-demand wrestlers on the circuit. His love of standup comedy drew him to Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where his show "Commentary to Bad Wrestling Matches" has been entertaining crowds for over 7 years.







    Rhodders and Colt talk about: How Rhodders and Colt giged together, comedy in wrestling, how wrestling can be similar to standup, how wrestling being viewed as an art opens more possibilities, so called "smart" fans, how wrestling can follow the format of "setup" and "punch line", adapting to different types of audience, comparing the structure of a standup set to a wrestling match, performing at The Alternative Comedy Memorial Society, Colt's first standup show, Colt's show at the Edinburgh Fringe.

    Stand and Deliver podcast episode 21 Geoff Steel

    Geoff has won over many a crowd with his punch line packed sets and unpredictable ad-libs. He is also the master/disaster mind behind Reading's longest running comedy gig, Go On My Sun.







    Rhodders and Geoff talk about: Running a gig in the middle of the pub, how the gig started, what can make his gig hard to play and what makes it well worth performing at, what you can learn from the gig, being forced to ad-lib, knowing when to cut your set short, when your final joke of the set does not work, why starting a set is the hardest part, taking advantage of the room you are performing in, long car trips plus, how to remember material plus more.







    We also hear from Jake Baker, Tom Law and David Mulholland.

Smashy But also nicey

Absolutely love this Podcast. Rodders has a fantastic interview technique. Reminds me of a radio Dj with less sound effects. Some fantastic guests. Very funny stuff. Getting a behind the scenes look at comedy. I adore when Rodders goes on a random surrealist adventure. Great great stuff

Reading Comedy Fans Take Heed!

This a great podcast and it is also nice to know what comedy is going on in the Berkshire area. Comedy fans particularly those based in Reading should give it a listen!
