347 - Paul Sinha Returns

EOne of the first guests on ComCom about 8 years ago, Paul Sinha has had a rollercoaster of a life in the interim.From fringe comedian to celebrity quizzer as “The Sinnerman” on The Chase (ITV), to a memorable appearance on Taskmaster (Dave) which came just as he was diagnosing himself with Parkinson’s disease, we catch up on how his comedy has metamorphosed from political agitation to personal story-telling. We cover how the mainstream-ification of his audiences changed his comedy; how he lost a friend to Covid-19 but managed to survive a devastating dose himself; what expectations he has of his life from now on; and why he’s a better comedian now than he’s ever been… 30minutes of extra content, available exclusively to members of the Insiders Club, includes Paul on how he refuses to think about mortality, his new style of joke-writing on Twitter, and the inside story on his performance on Taskmaster… Go towww.comedianscomedian.com/insidersfor this and much much more.

345 - Larry Dean

ELarry Dean is a phenomenal comic who doesn’t coast on his brilliant physicality, but writes hard and really gets to the kernel of what’s funny about his life. We talk about being manipulated into working hard by people who understand you, deliberately mining opportunities for embodying the jokes, and how gay audiences sometimes confuse his self-deprecation for self-hatred.

344 - Archie Maddocks

EStand-up comic and award-nominated playwrightArchieMaddocks loves stitching together routines about kebab shops and his "rough-arse" schooling, with pathos and evocative prose.We talk about writing for the comedy club and the stage, why he's the straight-man to his highly-strung family of actors, and how his play "A Place For We" has been put on hiatus by Covid-19.We also talk about how his show "Matchstick" concluded with a heartfelt examination of the Grenfell Tower fire, and why he feels that "we're not people that ever cry".

342 - Catherine Cohen

ECatherine Cohen took home “Best Newcomer” at the Edinburgh Fringe last year, with a jaw-dropping show bursting with wit, originality and layer upon layer of irony.Her angle of attack, mocking the audience for being so pathetically in love with her, allows her to take huge risks on stage, in a character that was grown through vast quantities of just the right sort of stage time. We talk about why she loves the occasional “stone-faced” audience-member, about playing to win and succeeding, surviving burn-out, and why she can’t stop “freaking out about absolutely everything”… Join the Insiders Club now atwww.comedianscomedian.com/insidersfor all this and much much more.

EAn intriguing and invigorating "NonComPod" this week with comedian, care home assistant and indeed care home comedian Pope Lonergan.Impressively erudite, Pope has been addicted to drugs as well as to reading about the Hawaiian judicial system; we discuss his lifelong search for transcendence, whether drug-fuelled revelations of great artists count, and how to inhabit the present. @thedailybumbler| https://anchor.fm/pope-lonergan Join the Insiders Club now at www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders for all this and much much more.

Brett Goldstein (movie star, comedian, writer, super-fan of ComCom and perpetual invite-swerver) drops by for a “NonComPod” that won’t expose at all how crackers he is.Sadly Stu can’t help himself and it all goes a bit “Are You Happy?” A brilliant conversation with a kind, funny, deeply handsome man, who lets us into his mind to discuss humility, boredom and workaholism - and why the comedy community is like an AIDS quilt... 25 mins of extra content available exclusively to members of the Insiders Club include the backstage view of Brett’s “Films To be Buried With” podcast, how a run of terrible gigs way back during the Comedy Reserve fringe line-up show became a brutal bootcamp, and a decent chunk of Stu giving Brett unsolicited advice on how to navigate his mental health… Join the Insiders Club now at www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders for all this and much much more. *New episodes are now streamed live at www.twitch.tv/stugoldsmith on 1pm BST every Wednesday, f...
