How do today's stand-up comedy stars go from a blank piece of paper to a fully-formed Edinburgh show or DVD? In each show, comedian Stuart Goldsmith interviews a comedy headliner in depth, about exactly how they make funny stuff from scratch. Comics are used to being asked “where do you get your ideas?”, but The Comedian's Comedian Podcast goes further, asking: How much of your real self is there in your persona? How much new stuff can you get away with jamming into a club set? How do you shape a set-list? What's your methodology? Have you got a methodology? Why haven't you got a methodology? For people who perform comedy, write comedy, enjoy comedy, or have an interest in comedians and what makes them so annoying. Part interview, part master-class, part therapy - this is The Comedian's Comedian Podcast.

Customer Reviews

Warm, entertaining and witty

It's rare to see comedians pinned down like this for a full hour of chat, and the fact that it's done in such an engaging fashion really pulls you in. Peppered with lots of genuine off-the-cuff wit, warmth, love of the craft and the ad-hoc feel of a club or back-room. I'm not a comedian, too - ostensibly the target market! Can't wait to see how this show develops. Very highly reccommended.

My new favourite podcast!

A fascinating glimpse into the working life of a comedian, unearthed in a funny and insightful hour-long conversation between one comic and another. Stuart Goldsmith’s natural warmth imbues the show with a lovely energy that bounces along and draws you in. As a listener, there is the compelling sense throughout that you might just have pulled off a master stroke: to be a fly on the wall of an honest discussion that unpacks a craft you would usually only ever be able to access in its finished form. Excellent.

Hugely entertaining, massively useful

Brilliant stuff. If you're a fan of live comedy, this is essential listening. It's great to hear an interview with a particular focus on the process of joke writing, of structure and method. It's a focus that makes this a particularly unique podcast, and a very valuable one. Can't recommend it enough.
