Tiernan Douieb’s Words of Wisdom

May 11, 2016 @ 5:30 am

Tiernan is a comic I could chat to forever. We have shared car-journeys, gigs and late-night coffees in service stations. I always thought his name was from his Irish background but thats not even close! He explains all in this podcast along with his feelings on Jeremy Corbyn. He also talks us through the joy of doing Mark Watson's 24 hour stand-up show. All kinds of things can happen. On one occasion Gillian Anderson - from X-files and The Fall - turned up and shaved his back.

Ruth Bratt’s Words of Wisdom

June 18, 2015 @ 8:14 am

Ruth and I started off jovial and then got all serious. We covered Ruth's fear of flying, political correctness and science. I also learned about lovely places to go in America and trial by Twitter which isn't as much fun as it sounds.

Dan Schreiber’s Words of Wisdom

April 23, 2015 @ 5:28 am

Dan Schreiber is very clever. He is one of the QI elves and created the Radio 4 show The Museum of Curiosity. Incidentally, QI means Quite Interesting.

We talked a lot about books. Dan has read heaps and recommends places for us to go to find great books. Lots of areas were covered in this chat and we actually ran out of time so he's going to come back and finish what we started. I asked him to give us his 5 must-read books but we only made it to number 4. Along the way we heard some terrific anecdotes about Richard Pryor and Harpo Marx. Enjoy.

Eric Lampaert’s Words of Wisdom

April 13, 2015 @ 6:34 am

Eric is a comic who not only gigs in English and French but has just tried his hand at comedy in German too. He has eaten a wide array of bizarre food stuffs and like to challenge himself by doing things like jumping out of planes - none of which I knew until we sat down to chat. We also covered surviving the apocalypse and the British Museum. So there you go.

Josh Howie’s Words of Wisdom

March 5, 2015 @ 7:22 pm

Josh Howie - my friend and movie geek dropped by. Our conversation kept veering back to comedy. We tried to stay on his specialist subjects of films and Judaism but he is such an interesting and well informed man that we kept ending up talking about Polish film posters, the perfect TV show and Josh's shows. I quizzed Josh on the perfect film for the perfect time, his top five film lovers films and box sets. We also covered success and the complex relationship we have with our mate's success. He also gave some great advice on keeping your costs down if you are planning on doing the Edinburgh as an aspiring comic.

A fun one. We might have to do a follow up soon.....

Tara Hickman’s Words of Wisdom

March 1, 2015 @ 5:14 pm

Tara Hickman is a world famous make-up artist. She has taken time out of her busy busy schedule to drink wine with me and spill the beans on her various famous clients, her career path and the perks and downsides of being the last person to speak to a personality before a big, nerve-wracking event. I was also amazed to be told a few bits of info about Miss Selfridge, Mandarin Monroe and the Iron Lady. I was delighted to hear about Al Pacino and I think I will take away her words of wisdom on passing on trust to other people.

Stephen Hagan’s Words of Wisdom

January 13, 2015 @ 6:17 am

Today I chatted to my husband - Stephen Hagan - about his working life. I life that I know the intimate details but not the nuts and blts of how it all works. It was actually very interesting. We started at the beginning, from his childhood in Ireland, tractors and fields to drama school and the craft of acting itself. We learned about his audition disasters, theatre terminology and the biggie - pilot season.

Matt Kirshen’s Words of Wisdom

January 1, 2015 @ 11:55 am

Happy New Year! Matt Kirshen dropped by for a chat and the conversation - as it often does - veered from Jewish Traditions, hair, history and Matt's mum to politics and Russel Brand. I love it when I don't know where we are going to end up and the Cambridge-educated Matt doesn't disappoint. So much so that we forgot to mention his science podcast: Probably Science. You should definitely check that out.
