    355 - James Acaster Returns, Again! (Part 1)

    355 - James Acaster Returns, Again! (Part 1)

    The whole of this two hour conversation is available to everyone over parts one and two, but members of the Insiders Club were also treated to a special Q&A over Zoom, asking James their questions in person.  That audio is now available on the Insiders private podcast, and it was so much fun we’re going to do more of them with other comics!  For your future invitations to those, as well as all the extra content from every episode that has it, join now at www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders


    And now…


    To celebrate the forthcoming self-release via Dice.fm of his new special “Cold Lasagne Hate Myself 1999”, James returns to the podcast for two hours of insight across two episodes!  We explore the rawness of this new special, talk about his new “cool guy” costume, and discuss the pros and cons of having a right royal go at the audience.  We learn about his rejection of social media, the distance between his persona and his real self, and how in the past he’s forfeited his sanity in order not to rock the boat…


    “Cold Lasagne Hate Myself 1999” streams once at 8pm on 17th Dec wherever you are in the world (fancy!) and you can get access here:

    You cannot follow James Acaster on social media.

    354 - Martin Mor

    354 - Martin Mor

    Wild man of the woods or naughty Viking uncle, Martin Mor typifies the “adventure comic”, constantly challenging and reinventing himself, with an unshakeable confidence that the world will look after him.


    We discover his youth - hitchhiking, busking and squatting his way round the world to a backdrop of the explosive growth in new circus and alternative comedy - and how his desire to be “a juggler without tricks” led him at last to stand-up.


    We also learn what charisma means, peek into his latest venture offering online mentorship to newer comics, and learn what happens when you realise you’ve told all your stories…

    353 - Colt Cabana

    353 - Colt Cabana

    Our first wrestler! A man with a firm foot in both the ring and the comedy circuit; Colt Cabana has been a pro for over 20 years, in WWE and now AEW, as well as a committed comedy collaborator with people like Brendon Burns and John Hastings.  We talk about the myriad parallels between our worlds; about mentorship and growth; whether “kayfabe” is still a thing; learning how to play character instinctively; and meeting his comic match in Japanese wrestler Toru Yano.


    15 minutes of extra content available exclusively to members of the Insiders Club include Colt discussing evolution over a long career, crowd work with a baby, seeking inspiration in everything, and the “fakeness” or otherwise of UFC…

    352 - Alasdair Beckett-King

    352 - Alasdair Beckett-King

    The inter-dimensional ABK is a brilliantly original comic with a penchant for wordy intelligent material that leaves no-one behind. He’s also the creator of the most absurdly wonderful animated trailer for an Edinburgh show you’ve ever seen.
    We talk about why he never likes to be part of a group; attention to detail and the merits of commitment; and gives his thoughts on how we get to the A-timeline…


    20 minutes of extra content available exclusively to members of the Insiders Club include Alasdair gives a fascinating example of using jokes as a means of hiding internal mechanics when scripting video games, and ponders potentially falling between the two stools of arty and club comedy.  Go to www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders for this and much, much more.

    351- Laurie Kilmartin

    351- Laurie Kilmartin

    Laurie Kilmartin can make anything funny; from her superb album “45 Jokes About My Dead Dad”, a bulletproof club-fresh comedy special which doesn’t tarry with emotion, to live-tweeting the recent tragic loss of her mother to Covid-19. We learn how she found humour by turns lacerating and deeply moving, even in that awful situation.


    We also talk about her work as a monologue writer for Conan O’Brien, and the rhythm of pitching jokes personally and then collaborating in the last hour before showtime; how to wield disdain effectively; and why she doesn’t believe comics like to make people happy.


    Join the Insiders Club now at www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders for a veritable smorgasbord of content spanning the ComCom back-catalogue, and numerous other perks.

MBPjcb ,

Great podcast

Informative and interesting about the comedian's process. Naturally funny and introduces you to new comics.

jenniefm ,

Excellent. Just excellent.

Stuart has an excellent interviewing style. I'm not a comedian, nor do I have a yearning to be, but it if you are interested in how people get better at their craft this is for you.

Neal_dj ,

I wasn't paid for this review.

Essential listening for anyone interested in comedy.
