Episode 18 After the Show

ESo, the show happened. This episode was recorded immediately before the show started, at the interval and two days afterwards. So now you can find out how it all went. How many people came to see it? Did they enjoy it? And at the end of it all, did I think the months of work that had gone into it were worth it?

Episode 18 After the Show

Episode 17 Last Leg

EThe final episode before I perform the show itself, this features various bits of audio from the few days building up to the final event. There's a tiny snatch of rehearsal footage, plus bits of reflection recorded at various times, and even snatches from an appearance on BBC Radio Kent talking to Lembit Opik. It's a right old sound collage.

Episode 16 Poster

EHere I talk about the poster for the show. In the process, I touch on such issues as visual design, digital vs. analogue, hand-drawn lettering vs. chunky sans serif fonts, portrait vs. landscape, and the general concept of visual design in stand-up comedy. In the course of all this, there's a passing mention of Ross Noble.

Episode 15 Half Century Man

EHere I talk about - and play - the song that will close the show. It's a serious song rather than a comedy number, and as such it's pretty much the only bit of actual material that I'm happy to give away here before I perform the show.

Episode 14 That Difficult Phase

EHere I talk about the emotional effects of struggling to put together a new full-length stand-up show. And I refer to a bit of academic research published nearly 40 years ago, featuring an interview with a successful comedy writer who describes pretty much exactly what I'm going through right now.
