The Comedian's Comedian Podcast is a chat show that revels in the
niche. Aiming to delve deeper than your average "how did you get into
comedy?" questions, host Stuart Goldsmith examines what makes comedians
tick by looking at how comedy is developed. Through interview questions, he
casts a critical eye over everything from stage personas and audience
interaction to origin stories and what drives people to become comedians, each
episode focusing on a single comic; in this case Sam Simmons.
Goldsmith provides the perfect mix of professional insight and gentle prodding towards fantastically detailed answers and candid conversation.
Goldsmith goes above and beyond standard
journalistic techniques - providing the perfect mix of professional insight and
gentle prodding towards fantastically detailed answers and candid
conversation. The show swings between the intensely personal, the acutely
detailed and the laugh out loud funny.
True, a live podcast recording isn’t much to look at, two men sat on
stools talking into microphones, but the content is interesting enough that the
visuals are hardly relevant.
Intricately deconstructing a single joke for twenty minutes, whilst a
paradise for some, isn't everyone's cup of tea, and as the name might suggest Comedian's
Comedian takes pride in its exclusivity. The show is entertaining on a
basic level to even the most casual observer, but to the comedy aficionado it
really shines. You'll either like Comedian's Comedian or you'll love it.
