    EP.170 - KAYVAN NOVAK

    EP.170 - KAYVAN NOVAK

    Adam talks with British actor and comedian Kayvan Novak about how he made the transition from being a jobbing actor dealing with his share of typecasting, to creating comic characters from a wide range of nationalities and ethnicities on Fonejacker and Facejacker, and the joys and dangers of doing so. And there's a clash of the BBC documentarians as Kayvan unleashes the full force of his uncanny Louis Theroux impression and Adam does his best to respond with Adam Curtis.
    Recorded face to facejacker (oh dear) in London on 21st June, 2021.

Good 😊 podcast

My new fav

This is a great, conversational podcast. Amusing when it is and touching when it isn’t. Great guests, but I suspect that Adam would make even the dullest person sound interesting with his engaging style.

The Repair Shop

I played my wife the bit about the Repair Shop, while watching the Repair Shop! Brilliant. It even got a laugh out of her which is hard to do, or is that just me?
