Her writing and performance in The Fast Show made her one of the most influential women in British sketch comedy; now Arabella Weir reflects on her work and the balance of power underpinning the five-man, most-often-one-woman sketch team.  We discuss the tension and friction of making comedy; whether a happy person still has the same hunger to perform; and learn the awful truth about the genesis of her character "Girl Who Boys Can't Hear"...

Compared To What

This is my new standup album "Compared To What", which was my 2016 fringe show and my 2017 tour.

Motormouth reporter Jonathan Pie is the creation of motormouth actor Tom Walker. His online videos of a furious news reporter apparently caught on camera are massively viral and often hilarious. We talk about the synthesis of an internet character into a live show, discover the politics of the writing team behind the agitator, and encounter the pressures of a weekly commitment to content.

In the second part of our conversation, comedy craftsman James Acaster examines his relationship to his audience, and how that changes under a variety of different pressures, and also reveals why he never sits down to write.

About to drop four interlinked standup specials on Netflix, James Acaster is also the only comedian ever to have been nominated for the Edinburgh comedy award five years in a row. One of the defining comic voices of his generation, he returns to the show to share his writing process and how he sneaked out an autobiography by stealth...

Jess "Mighty Voice" Robinson is a phenomenal vocalist and impressionist, who has her audiences in tears of bliss as well as laughter.  We talk about her experience on "Britain's Got Talent" when she was "outed" by press as a seasoned professional, and learn how to survive stage school. Finally Jess overcomes her desire to please, and very honestly and painfully reveals why a standing ovation never seems "enough"...

Dane Baptiste is raising the bar for articulate, socially-conscious stand-up, and pulls no intellectual punches in this conversation, which takes in chakras, Arthur Maslow's hierarchy of needs and transcendental perception...  We talk about what it means to be the first black Briton to be nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award; why validation, gratification and dopamine aren't the end goal; and why he's a goofball.

I've never seen such an immediate standing ovation as the one we gave Zoe Coombs-Marr at the end of her show "Trigger Warning" this year.  Her multiple award-winning creation "Dave" is a troubled hack comic and the centre of an awesomely meta-textual subversion and dismantling of the craft of comedy. We talk about the range and limits of character work, learn about feminist super-group show "Wild Bore", and find out why she'd be happy to fail if it meant the world changed.

Uniquely funny and inventive stand-up Howard Read has recently been performing a double-act with an animated cartoon child version of himself.  We discuss the madness behind his method, explore the hazards of improvising double-act banter with oneself, and learn what he can and can't get away with...
