16/10/18 Interview on Radio Derby

Last night I was interviewed by Martyn Williams on Radio Derby about notable comedians that I’d seen in the area. Here is a list of comedians and new nights that I managed to mention:

Rhod Gilbert – secret gig at the Blessington Carriage

Simon Lomas – the greatest rising comedy star in the country

Scott Bennett – similar to Peter Kay, but better with more appetite for comedy

Andrew Bird – the best story teller comedian in the country

Phil Carr – dark and edgy, unbroadcastable on Radio Derby, Masai Graham – seen pensioners laughing at his dark material.

Steff Todd – compering in Ripley on the 19th, one liner artist, Phil Pagett and her must have very funny conversations

Mo Haroon – headlining in Alfreton, good writing

Jon Pearson – running a showcase for comedy nights

New nights mentioned:

19th Ripley

30th Alfreton

Roundhouse Showcase

I’m on from 39 minutes or so in and can be found here on BBC Radio Derby.

Thanks to Graham Newcombe for sending me the link and big thanks to Martyn Williams for having me on.
