Ido a podcast. I reckon over three-quarters of comedians do. Not content with having a microphone and an expectant audience to hang on our every word night after night, we attention addicts are always after another outlet for our thoughts and opinions. Hopefully, sometimes they’re actually funny. I even have this column every month to spout off whatever nonsense I come up with.
There’s a plethora of stuff being produced by comedians, from Marc Maron’s WTF recorded in his garage taking to comedians, movies stars and even President Obama, to my mates Carl Donnelly and Chris Martin in North London who interview comedians they like and want to have a laugh with. Two good friends of mine, Rachel Fairburn and Kiri Pritchard Mclean, not happy with just being amazing stand-ups have joined forces to create the incredibly successful podcast ‘All Killa No Filla’ chatting and shooting the breeze about serial killers. Yes, serial killers. You may not be surprised to know many comedians are slightly obsessed with serial killers. I can’t see the correlation myself, beyond the loneliness, long hours, lack of recognition and a desire to impress parents. They do live shows and have even returned from a successful multicity tour of the States. Talking megalomaniac serial killers in America? Coals to Newcastle etc.
My own podcast – About 30 Minutes, Never More Than 45 – is a more shambolic light-hearted affair. The idea – if there is one – is that I record snippets of my week and present them in a fresh and honest offering. I’ll chat to comedians in green rooms, again never short of something to say, about the gig or the city we are in, perhaps the food they’ve had that day. Often the podcast can feel a little like a review show. I hire
