We’re delighted to announce a new twist to Mostly Comedy – planned for 2020, then put on hold until September 2021 due to the pandemic – when we’ll devote the second half of select gigs to onstage interviews for our newly-rebooted MORE THAN MOSTLY COMEDY podcast.
Longtime attendees of Mostly Comedy will know we used to record interviews with the acts appearing on the bill – grabbing a moment with them backstage around the show (which was always a timekeeping challenge!) – which you can still listen to for free at Apple Podcasts. People featured on MTMC back then include Paul Daniels & Debbie McGee, Katherine Ryan, Phill Jupitus, Richard Herring, James Acaster, Arthur Smith and Sean Hughes.
Now, we’re relaunching the podcast by integrating it into the performance at certain shows. The first half will be like a normal gig with sets from each act, while the second half will feature short informal interviews with the line-up onstage. This will offer an insight into the people on the bill and what led them to become a performer you know.
February 2020’s show with KATE ROBBINS and NORMAN LOVETT was the first to take this format, followed by May 2020’s episode with ARTHUR SMITH and others (which took place in front of a Zoom audience, due to COVID-19).
The next onstage podcast will take place in September 2021 (subject to COVID-19 restrictions), but in the meantime, we’ve been recording interviews live via Zoom, which you can hear below.
Listen to thirteen new episodes – with LYNN RUTH MILLER, LUCY PORTER, ISY SUTTIE, JOSH WIDDICOMBE, ANNA MORRIS, JAN RAVENS, DAN RENTON SKINNER, MARTIN TRENAMAN, BOBBY DAVRO, MARK MORRISS, RORY BREMNER, ARTHUR SMITH and KATE ROBBINS & NORMAN LOVETT – here (with JAMES ACASTER to follow):
