Celebrating the release of Brian's Netflix special, his work now available in the UK for the first time, we're proud to bring you this blast from the past!  Well, 2016...

Brian Regan is the undisputed master of the "act-out", reducing audiences to tears of joy as he inhabits one potent premise after another. We squeezed in half an hour backstage to talk about how he shapes and annotates his "vignettes", and find out why everyone considers him the nicest man in comedy.

Note to UK-based listeners. Even if you don't always download non-UK acts, please just give this a whirl; it's only short and he's INCREDIBLE.

A superb comedian story-teller, Sarah Kendall's work is suffused with genuine meaning.  She talks vividly here about controlling her anxiety and the aftermath of a nervous breakdown.  We also delve into some specifics, including the financial imperative of turning over new work annually, and how she had to re-discover her audience after time away from the fringe...

Infused with the lyrical virtuosity of his native New Orleans, comic and story-teller Sean Patton is adept at finding the meaningful in the profane.  We talk about his OCD; his fixation on the art and craft of comedy; why he favours purity over people-pleasing; and how the high school bullshit seeps back into the circuit...

Recorded at the close of the Edinburgh festival, this toweringly-charismatic lay-preacher of comedy is astonishingly candid in his reflection on the past few years. We get deep into some very personal stuff, as Reg reveals how his struggle to grieve for his late mother led to a years-long dark period. We learn what steps he took personally and creatively to recover; discover what bugs Reg about himself; and ask some difficult questions about his attitude towards women.

One of the writers and stars of Northern Ireland's most successful sitcom "Give My Head Peace", wonderful Tim McGarry is adept at walking the tightrope of offence.  We talk about his origins with The Hole In The Wall Gang; how it felt to write sketches about paramilitaries during the Troubles; and Stuart asks a "wanky" question that yields some interesting results...

In this "lost" episode recorded in Edinburgh in 2016, Joe DeRosa peels back the layers of his hilariously disgruntled standup about anxiety, therapy and suicide.  He rails against comedy being used to self-serve, champions the rebellious spirit of the comedian, and details fearlessly walking away from opportunity...

Fuelled by a seemingly-bottomless well of anger, and capable of articulating it hilariously, Michael Legge rages that life isn't as beautiful as it should be. We learn how his own righteous ire mimics that of his bulletproof mum, discover the origins of twitter game #FuckAThing, and just at the end get him to say something pretentious about art.

We discuss the cultural currents involved with his ability to headline a show in four different languages; his focus on quality control, from pruning his online presence to interviewing audience-members post-show; and find out why he wants to get better at holding his nerve...
