Martin Walker talks to John Dowie, the former stand up comedian, turned playwright and author. John performs an exclusive extract from his new book, 'The Freewheeling John Dowie' and explains what the publishers 'Unbound' are all about.
John also talks about how he got started in stand up comedy, why he stopped and if he'd ever be tempted to perform stand up again.
The interview was conducted by telephone. Apologies for the sound quality.
