Venezuelan Ivan is a comic powerhouse, with an intensely scientific approach underpinning his sensual performance.  Self-taught by translating classic routines into Spanish, he's achieved a genuine mastery of the ingredients necessary for faultless joke structure; as soon as he starts outlining Louis CK's "foundational premise", you'll be hooked...

214 - Nick Cody

A globe-trotting man-bear with a fiery beard and a heart of gold, Nick Cody becomes the audience's best friend on sight, but doesn't skimp on big-hitting routines. We talk about the parallels in achievement between sport and 
comedy, targeting the whole world's audience, and Conor McGregor...

Responsible for some of the funniest and most intelligent one-liners in the world, Simon Munnery has a brain like none other. Rarely will you find another comic so enthralled by serving "the idea", whether through Kierkegaardian prose or innovative but unreliable technology.  Simon reveals his approach to writing epigrammatic jokes, and Stu gently bullies him into trying harder to get back on TV.
 
Extra material available at www.comedianscomedian.com/extras - including an account of the near riot of which Simon was the epicentre; as well as his take on success, his obsession with audience numbers, his invention of a better saucepan, and a quick story about Banksy's lawyer...

A bright young thing of the Boston comedy scene, Orlando Baxter conceals a sharp wit beneath a laidback persona.  We talk about college gigs, Set-List, and why Americans ostentatiously carry their phones onstage.  We also explore his reticence to go deep into his own life experiences, the importance of putting asses in seats, and why YouTubers can't hide...

For more than 50 years Barry Cryer OBE has been a lynchpin of British comedy. Having written for Morecambe & Wise, Tommy Cooper, The Frost Report and Kenny Everett, he still performs in "I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue" and will be appearing live once again at the year's Edinburgh Festival.  We discuss joke structure, word choice and rapport, and Stu achieves a life-long ambition by telling Barry the "Beekeepers" joke.

In-between appearing in Olivier Award-winning improvised musical "Showstopper!" and co-founding the "radically inclusive global movement" Sunday Assembly, Pippa Evans is a poly-performative stand-up, singer and actress. We talk about what made her character "Loretta Maine" so successful, and some of the inherent drawbacks; and we discuss her unique brand of self-confidence, the moment her jealousy overcame her, and how she dealt with the fallout...

Clean-cut to within an inch of his life, spunky Ed Gamble is a deft young comic who attributes his burgeoning success to being in the right place at the right time.  We discuss the affect on his persona of the "Peacock & Gamble" double-act, learn how he created comedian Nish Kumar and tremble before his voracious appetite (for tagging jokes).

In this quicky micro-pod, Stu talks all soppy like about his recent nuptials.  (Also T-shirt pre-sale info and a quick ad for some London previews this weekend he neglected to advertise.  At all.)

Since the 1980's Jo Brand has been synonymous with the best of British comedy, rising to the top of the industry at a time when female comics were outnumbered sixteen to one.  We find out whether her grumpiness is an act, applaud her resilience in the face of some of the disgraceful things people have said to her, and discover her feelings about the place of "fat" jokes in a perhaps more progressive 2017.
 
Very strong language from the beginning of the episode.
