Comedian Josie Long makes me feel better about the world. She is a ball of delightful, charming and passionate energy whose comedy is hilarious and socially conscious and life-affirming.
In this chat, recorded backstage at the lovely Soho Theatre, Josie and I chat about how she became more politically active, the trickiness of “helping” in the right way, the UK Labour leadership, austerity, art, privilege and voting for what you believe in.
You guys my show The World Keeps Happening got nominated for the 2016 lastminute.com Edinburgh Comedy Awards. How bloody ridiculous.
It was a true honour to be up there alongside the likes of Nish Kumar, Al Porter, KieranHodgson, Richard Gadd, James Acaster and my fellow Australians Zoe Coombs-Marr and Randy. A huge congrats to Richard for taking out the big prize, rendering the rest of us worthless losers.
Sincerest thank yous to Assembly Festival, Token Artists, the Pinder family, my flyerers, my techs Nikolai and Jamie, my family and of course all of you out there who actually came and watched the thing. I’m a lucky laddy indeed.
