Multiple award-botherer Tom is well-read, politically-conscious and adept at turning argument into meaningful comedy.  He's also really aggravatingly young and funny and successful. We discuss his politicisation, his approach to writing and editing, and whether he deliberately left his show-script out on his desk for Stu to see...

A punchline powerhouse with a genuinely unique act, Lee Ridley is adept at skewering his audience's unspoken prejudices. Unable to speak due to his cerebral palsy, Lee communicates entirely through an electronic aid, on- and off-stage.  We discuss how he overcomes the specific challenges this presents to a comic, and learn in more than usual detail how he "found his voice".  And why he chose that accent...

Immaculate in appearance, delivery and hit-rate, Rhys Nicholson is a perfectly-balanced cocktail of a comedian.  We discuss the relationship between his face, his "face" and the world of drag, and zero in on the pressures of following up an award-nominated show...

In his fourth decade as a comic, Jeremy Hardy is a staple of British comedy radio. His passion for vivid, punchline-filled writing is further enlivened by his political fervour. We find out what people most often get wrong about the birth of alternative comedy, discuss his choice of words and analogies, and explore why he hates being labelled a political comic.

Aunty Donna are a six-man sketch team with specialists in video, sound design and stage direction reinforcing the classic clown family of octopus Statham, wild-eyed loon and wanking sex-monkey.  We talk about the method behind the madness, the effect their online presence has on their creativity, and the meetings required to steer a six person/six partner battleship.

Having grown up in Tasmania at a time when her very sexuality was illegal, Hannah Gadsby has forged her anger into an annihilating comic weapon. Her new show "Nanette" is a heart-wrenching piece of work that rails against the failings of comedy itself to tell enough of the truth. We talk about honesty and accessibility, and her decision to stop being a comedian.

Global comedy superstar Russell Brand is studying for a degree, raising a new baby, and assembling a new two-year tour. An Essex boy with cosmic ambition, his art is obsessed with finding the transcendent in the mundane. We talk about his joy in "scribbling on reality", how he employs language to hijack and seed discourse, and the art of disruption...

One of the most iconoclastic, pioneering and influential comedians in Britain, Stewart Lee has forged his post-punk ideals into a thrillingly funny live act, with the very form at his fingertips.

We explore the deliberately uncomfortable tension between the man and the stage persona; discuss his self-imposed exclusion from the comedy community; and investigate his unshakeable conviction that he is in fact unsuccessful.

An electrifying live performer, with a casual brutality that has audiences laughing despite themselves, Paul Chowdhry sells far more tickets than his mid-level TV profile might suggest. We talk about his outsider status, the racial abuse he suffered as a child, and the responsibility or otherwise of the comedian to challenge the status quo.
