412 - Bianca Del Rio

Ep. 412

Everyone’s favourite “clown in a gown”, Bianca Del Rio is an unstoppable onslaught of insult comedy, swathed in haute couture, and concealing an absolute gem in the form of Roy Haylock, who talks to Stu out of makeup and only occasionally in character…


Currently in the middle of a colossal tour, which drops into the Edinburgh Fringe this week, we talk about the unique crucible of combative performance circumstances that created her; how her surprising attitude to the RuPaul’s Drag Race interviews helped her shine; and how to “eliminate fuckery”. Plus: the secret benefit to doing meet & greets (it’s not the money!), and an astonishing claim not to spend any time at all writing her huge tour shows…


Experience Bianca Del Rio live at the Edinburgh Fringe from 18th Aug!

417 - Esther Manito

Ep. 417
Skilfully navigating territory of misogyny and a clash between lad culture and woke lads, Esther Manito’s recent show “#NotAllMen” burst at the seams with relatable material rooted in the clash between her Middle Eastern heritage and her Essex upbringing.Esther talks here about whether you can be too relatable; having children before comedy and musing on an agent’s misguided warning that no-one wants a ”comedy mum”; and growing up in Essex at the time of the Gulf War, with anti-Arab rhetoric prevalent in her school15mins of extras available exclusively to the Insiders Club include more from Esther on her generalised anxiety disorder, and the worst gig of her life!Go to www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders for 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 Esther:www.esthermanito.co.ukTW: @esther_manitoIG: @esthermanitoEverything Stu's up to:Podcast community linksSocial media handles and comedy clipsAnd Stu’s official YouTube channel…Are all at linktr.ee/stuartgoldsmithOr visit: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

416 - Glenn Moore

Ep. 416
Comedy machine-gun Glenn Moore smashed Edinburgh again this year with a show in which every word and breath serviced his phenomenal joke-rate. Thrill, as you discover how he’s driven to this prodigious comedy output by an almost pathological fear of being told off by an audience for not trying hard enough!We revisit his earliest shows, speculate as to what drives him to apply a much sterner standard to himself than anyone else, and find out what it means to him that “Mock The Week” has concluded…20mins of extras available exclusively to the Insiders Club include how many notes Glenn has on his app in the run up to Edinburgh (clue, it’s more than a thousand!) , we talk paradigm-shifts in comedy, and he shares with us some of his recent bad ideas. Also Stu is forced into quite an embarrassing admission - unless he’s chickened out and cut that bit by the time this is released…Go to www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders for 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 Glenn on tour now!Glenn is on tour right now and into the start of 2023, find out more at www.glennmoorecomedy.com/liveTW: @TheNewsAtGlennIG: @glennrogermooreEverything Stu's up toPodcast community linksSocial media handles and comedy clipsAnd Stu’s official YouTube channel…Are all at linktr.ee/stuartgoldsmithOr visit: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
