This is an interesting podcast which delightfully engages stand-up as a form. Looking forward to seeing more in the future!
Great, but it would be good if we could see the objects. And there’s nothing about me.
Brilliant podcast for anyone interested in history, comedy or just archiving. Particularly if you love stand up, this podcast gives a brilliant insight into the development of the form in the UK. Fans of ComComPod should deffo listen!
If it's possible to upload pics of the items on twitter that'd be great, but if not no worries - I'll certainly be making time to visit the archive
