A lot has changed since Old Tone's last appearance on the podcast. He's clean, sober and re-launching, but no less of a uniquely hilarious act.

Legendary comic Barry Crimmins kickstarted Boston's comedy scene in the 1980s, testified to the Senate against AOL.com profiteering from child pornography, and is to this day both a political firebrand and an intensely kind man.

We talk about his new special "Whatever Threatens You", released this week by Louis CK; political comedy and being your own trusted source; and Barry also acknowledges the personal cost of a life of activism.

Sweaty, bearded turbo-clown Paul Currie's shows are stuffed with unforgettable images, feelings and smells. Beloved of comedy's intelligentsia, this award-winning performer doesn't let go of your heart until the last cornflake is eaten and the last tear shed.

We discuss the cultural ecology of his native Northern Ireland; the difficulties of working in isolation; and we also talk about how the apparent vogue for clowning affects a veteran performer.

Erudite stand-up, amazingly elastic improviser, and Goldsmith facial-resembler, John Robins is hitting his stride. We talk about the difficulties of changing gear mid-career, treating writing shows like writing essays, and being driven by shame.
