A purveyor of rigorously intellectual stand-up, searing personal material, and diamond-hard puns, Alice Fraser joins the ComComPod community for a live special episode - moments after the entire audience had enjoyed her superb show "Ethos". Covering bullying, Buddhism and artificial intelligence, can Stu crack this immensely self-assured nut?

Responsible for the best reviewed comedy show at Edfringe 2018, Alex Edelman is an irrepressibly funny comic, with a grasp of joke structure and narrative arc that is both innate and studied.  We cover his Modern Orthodox Jewish upbringing, and as well as identifying a "a confessional arms race" in modern comedy, he reveals a desperate need to be accepted by his peers.  But is he really "solicitous and pandering"?
 
Extra content for this episode includes Alex's hypothetical "formula" for an award-winning first hour, and why although prescriptive it isn't actually that formulaic. We also get to hear him review himself honestly...  Sign up for all the extras at www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders

Best know nowadays as Chief Commissioner Cameron Miekelson
from BBC Scotland's "Scot Squad", Jack Docherty first came to comedy in 1980 with his sketch group "The Bodgers" arrival at the Edinburgh Fringe.
 
We explore how the Fringe has changed, trace his career via the Channel Four sketch show "Absolutely", and resulting spin-off "Mr Don & Mr George", and discover his frustrations on hosting the chatshow that was a Channel 5 flagship.  We also unpack which absurdist elements of Jack's improvisation are too much for TV...

Winner of the 2018 Edinburgh Comedy Award (called it!), Rose Matafeo brought the thunder to #edfringe this year, with a barnstorming performance of her show "Horndog".  We discuss how she ensured her hilarious material about female sexuality brought the whole room along with it; how she's actively mining for hot takes; and why she has a quintuple-threat approach to performance.

258 - Nick Thune

Whipsmart hipster Nick Thune combines hilarious club chops with genuine insight.  In a hotel room at SXSW we discuss how he has fashioned a beautiful cage of a career, the difference between "open" and "closed" jokes, and deserving happiness.  We also hear the incredible tale of the time he got to sift through the old notebooks of comedy legend Mitch Hedberg...

257 - Myq Kaplan

Myq Kaplan just bubbles over with jokes; every punchline has a topper and every topper has a tag in his absurdly punchline-dense cascade of comedy. We talk about structure, rhythm and where it all comes from, and enjoy a superb counter to the question "are you happy?"

Jen Brister is one of those comics who has been excellent for a long time and is finally getting some proper recognition. Her passionate, witty material about love, motherhood and human relationships is backed up a real talent for characterisation, and lashings of anger and self-doubt; a bulletproof bag of nerves if you will... We talk about her brief stint as a BBC6 Music presenter, how her subsequent fall from grace reinvigorated her comedy career, and what was going through her mind as she walked onstage at Live At The Apollo...

"Scummy Mummies" Helen Thorn and Ellie Gibson are a pair of stand-ups with a hit parenting podcast unlike any other.

254 - Paul Foot

Paul Foot has one of the most refreshingly original comic voices in the world. We delve deep into the 13 years he spent being brilliant but unreliable, and the psychological toll imposed by the heroic deaths necessary to achieve genuine excellence. We talk about his writing partnership, his "guild of connoisseurs", and the Australian run of shows that changed everything...
 
Hungry for more? Experience Paul's jaw-droppingly comprehensive 30 minute explanation of his "seven styles of comedy" (possibly impenetrable to the casual listener), and discover the origin of his utterly unique dress code, all available now to members of the Insiders Club!
