In 2014, Lee Wilson had written and produced three series of a successful sitcom & sketch podcast ("extremely high production values, and an excellent standard of writing.” - So he quit. Then he tried stand up instead. This is the story of that journey beginning with Wilson first contemplating giving it a go, through to his first steps on stage, right up to today - spoiler alert, he's still doing it. A beautiful, agonising, warts 'n' all audio diary of a nobody trying to do something extraordinary.

One man’s journey...

…into stand up.

We all know Lee is an excellent producer, writer and director. But can he stand in front of a room full of hapless civilians and make chuckles flood involuntarily out of their mouths?

The brilliant bit is, we don’t know. Follow Lee in real time as he makes his first forays into the notoriously challenging open mic circuit in London, England. Lee records straight after his gigs with all the ups and downs of how his set went, as well as more thoughtful passages as he’s pondering the best course to take with his material and his life throughout the week.

I have personally challenged him to do 100 gigs, and so far he’s done 5. They’ve gone well. But will he last the distance? Does he even want to? I should add he never specifically said he would take me up on the challenge, so I don’t even know if that’s his aim.

Either way, this superb podcast is the only place to find out, unless you want to keep an eye on Live at the Apollo for the next 10 years. It’s as entertaining and beautifully produced a listen as all of the 4amcab podcasts, do not miss.

A journey from sketch to stand up and beyond!

As someone who has occasionally thought of dabbling in stand up but never been brave enough to try it, I'm looking forward to living vicariously by following Lee's journey behind the mic! He has already proven his comedy credentials with the sketch/sitcom show 4am Cab so surely it's only a matter of time before he's at the Apollo!

Behind the scenes

Really interesting look behind the curtain for someone starting out on stand up comedy.
