398 - Byron Bowers (Live at SXSW)

Ep. 398

CW: Suicide, School shooting


Visionary comedian, and actor in “Honey Boy” (Prime) and “Concrete Cowboys” (Netflix), Byron Bowers once moved to LA and slept in his car while he tried to make stand-up work. In this live special from South By South West, he joins us to talk about processing trauma; finding true freedom onstage and emotional freedom among his family; how he apprehends his comic and acting technique; and being so poor people think you’re wealthy…


25 mins of extra content available exclusively to the Insiders Club include Byron on his relationship to hope, his experience at Old Rope in London, and how he avoids feeling like a v victim of racism in Hollywood.

405 - Olaf Falafel

Ep. 405
The comic creation of comedian and illustrator Derek Chickpeas, “Olaf Falafel” is an absolute combine-harvester of inspirationally daft ideas; hoovering them up and blasting them out across multiple creative outputs.We talk about “Olaf Falafel’s Art Club”, “Old MacDonald Heard A Parp”, “One Giant Leek” and plenty of other projects including “The Pearl With The Girl Earring” and a load of other stuff he unsurprisingly doesn’t have time to properly leverage…. We also discuss his penchant for over-delivering; his uniquely brilliant Edinburgh Fringe flyer designs; how to prioritise a million projects; as well as how he manages to stay one of the happiest creatives who’ve ever graced this podcast.Over half an hour of extras available exclusively to members of the Insiders Club include an exploration of his copycat-inspiring success on Vine (and the relief he felt at its collapse); further investigation of his effervescent comedy mind; and why he probably won’t illustrate your kids’ book idea…Go towww.comedianscomedian.com/insidersfor ad-free episodes, extra content from every show that has it, and much more - including the exclusive Insiders Q&As with Nish Kumar, Alfie Brown, James Acaster and Fern Brady, plus the incredible “self-help for comedians” special with Amanda Donnet.Catch up with Olaf Falafel:http://www.olaffalafel.com/TW: @OFalafelIG: @olaffalafelTik: @olaffalafelEverything Stu's up to:This podcast is @ComComPod on Twitterwww.comedianscomedian.comIG and Tik: @stuartgoldsmithcomedyFind out everything Stu’s up to atwww.stuartgoldsmith.comStu offers remote and in-person talks to business, distilling insights from over 400 comics on cultivating resilience and the ability to bounce back, to all levels from C-suite to team members.“There’s perfect and there’s perfect; and that was perfect.”David Cooper, Chief People Officer Circle Health Group

404 - Helen Bauer

Ep. 404
CW: Self-harm"Basic plus" (because she’s self-aware), brilliant Helen Bauer is probably the most self-actualised comedian and human we’ve had on the show.Her punchy gags and insightful premises are all imbued with an absolute tsunami of personality, flirting with us one minute and roaring the next. And she even seems to have accepted her longterm depression…We talk about her Apollo-conquering debut; how she acutely weaponises elements from her real life that might seem like hindrances; and basing your personality around a scrunchie.15 deeply painful minutes of extra content available exclusively to members of the Insiders Club includes a conversation about “cringe”. (I mean honestly, even if you’re an Insider, just skip this bit - there’s nothing for you here), and some lovely stuff about her podcasting co-hosts Rosie Jones and Catherine Bohart.Go towww.comedianscomedian.com/insidersfor ad-free episodes, extra content from every show that has it, and much more - including the exclusive Insiders Q&As with Nish Kumar, Alfie Brown, James Acaster and Fern Brady, plus the incredible “self-help for comedians” special with Amanda Donnet.Catch up with Helen Bauer:Helen and Catherine Bohart’s podcast is “Trusty Hogs”, discover it athttps://pod.link/1587488188www.helenbauer.co.ukIG and TW: @helenbabauerEverything Stu's up to:This podcast is @ComComPod on Twitterwww.comedianscomedian.comClips of Stu’s standup that prove he is good despite how vulnerable he deliberately makes himself in interviews for YOUR benefit can be found on IG and Tiktok: @stuartgoldsmithcomedy#cringeFind out everything Stu’s up to atwww.stuartgoldsmith.comStu offers remote and in-person talks to business, distilling insights from over 400 comics on cultivating resilience and the ability to bounce back, to all levels from C-suite to team members.“There’s perfect and there’s perfect; and that was perfect.”David Cooper, Chief People Officer Circle Health Group
