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.

Ep. 410
A uniquely nuanced voice in comedy, the riotously imaginative Tom Ward balances gleeful absorption in the creative process and robustly-managed mental health.Destined to become a fan favourite, this episode sees Tom sensitively exploring: why comics with certainty make him suspicious; his internal landscape and how he copes with the non-triggered meltdowns occasioned by his Complex PTSD; and how his careful devotion to doing one thing at a time impacts his creativity.He also uses a burner phone so he can’t get distracted whilst writing… •chef’s kiss•25 mins of extra content available exclusively to the Insiders Club includes Tom on the therapeutic value of comedy for good or ill; how his stolen Casio beats keep his ambiguity accessible; and the shared desire to write “a joke so good that he doesn’t die alone”.Catch up with Tom:www.tomwardvoice.comIG: @tomwardcomedianwww.facebook.com/tomwardcomedianTom Ward: Anthem plays at Monkey Barrel at The Edinburgh Fringe from 3-28th Aug 2022 @22.25https://tickets.edfringe.com/whats-on/tom-ward-anthemEverything Stu's up toFind links to:Stu’s show at Edinburgh Fringe: Monkey Barrel, 13:25 (4-11th only)Podcast community linksSocial media handles and comedy clipsAnd his official YouTube channel…All via:linktr.ee/stuartgoldsmithOr visit his sites:www.comedianscomedian.comwww.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

Ep. 409
