Unfailingly bright and bubbly, Laura Lexx has recently shifted into higher gear, with a breakthrough fringe show about an ongoing mental health struggle. We learn how her director Jessica Fostekew pushed her to be more vulnerable than her club comic instincts would ordinarily allow, discuss bailing at competition finals, and consider melting down the fat to get to the muscle...
 
Extras available for donors on the private podcast at www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders include Laura on changes in her mindset that helped her improve; the differences between what audiences and industry are looking for in a festival show; reflections on other useful painful experiences, and a warning for people considering a certain student comedy competition...
 
The show Laura was doing at the Edinburgh festival was "Trying" and you can see it at The Soho Theatre in London from 20-23 February 2019 - https://sohotheatre.com/shows/laura-lexx-trying/
 
Catch Laura on the BBC's Live at the Apollo Christmas Special on 20th December!

Swaggering and slick yet positive and passionate, Imran Yusuf talks fast and funny, and dances around accusations of arrogance.  The first free fringe act to be nominated for Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Festival, appearing shortly afterwards on Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow, it looked as if the world was at his feet.  But he is the first to admit he didn't capitalise on his success, and now takes a forensic approach to the business decisions and alliances he regrets. We talk about how his previous job in the video-games industry affects his quality control; uncover the dynamic between his work ethic and an "internal unworthiness", and discover his voracious attitude to personal development...

267 - Elf Lyons

Elf Lyons is a comic phenomenon; a sexy clown with weaponised vulnerability, who loves tackling impossible theatrical challenges. Recorded before some complex health issues took her out of action, this conversation goes into depth on Elf's process, including how dealing with a horrible experience via bouffon clown allowed her to access a funnier self. We discuss what a rare bird is the audience, what parental pressure means to her, why you can't force meaning, and how to style out your weirdness.

Future Girl

A quick introduction to my beautiful daughter...

Crowned "Funniest Person In The World" at the Hollywood Laugh Factory, Finnish Ismo is often described as a Scandinavian Mitch Hedberg.  We discuss his intertwined logic and absurdity, learn how his fascination with jokes annoys even other comics, and analyse "Are you happy?" as a trick question...
 
Extra material for members of the Insiders Club includes Ismo on the perfect joke, what not to assume of your audience, and an example of a joke in Finnish translated into English, all on the private podcast at www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders

Mark Thomas is familiar to fans of British comedy as the innovative leftie agitator whose "Comedy Product" show entrapped arms dealers, torturers and Tories to hilarious effect, and at genuine risk to his safety and liberty. He survived being placed on the Domestic Extremist watch-list, and has transformed into a masterful theatre-maker; no less angry but producing richer and more nuanced work.  We discuss the dynamic between selflessness and control, learn the influence of critical friendships on his creative process, and find out what all of it has cost him...
 
 
Exclusive extra material available to podcast supporters at www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders includes Mark waxing lyrical on stand-up as an essentially Thatcherite form, his detective work behind the scenes on the NHS, his biggest failure, and which act he once accidentally impersonated at a Jongleurs gig...

Championed as a Hollywood icon of the Slacker generation, Janeane Garofalo is a brilliant and fascinating stand-up, with the structure-free style you'd expect from someone who read from notes on her first HBO special. She's candid about crying daily within the TV "sausage factory" of crime drama which draws in former film stars, and lets loose on the makers of 24 and Criminal Minds. She also talks about her activism, how her parents "raised a quitter", and turns out to be surprisingly well-informed on British comedy...

Extra material for members of the Insiders Club includes Janeane on the competition between reviewers to be as critical as possible, how it felt to be actively passed on by Netflix, the trials of selling shows when you eschew social media, and a secret message left to Stu when he went for a wee and left the recorder running...

All available when you join the Insiders Club for £2 per month or whatever you think is fair at www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders
