Ep. 7: “Cynophilia” with Lily Phillips.

Ep. 7: “Cynophilia” with Lily Phillips.

March 4, 2019

SQUIRREL!!! Oh wait, it's just the seventh episode of the podcast. Steve reunites with his 2018 Edinburgh split-show partner, the wickedly funny Lily Phillips, to talk about the overpowering, life-changing and frankly manipulative affect that dogs have on human beings. In a lewd, crude, highly anatomical chat that veers wildly on and off-topic, Lily takes us on a walk through the story of how becoming a dog-owner has shaken her cynicism to the core. Are dogs really more loving and loveable than the other beasts? Do they fill your heart up with love or use it all up? Is it physically possible to not take a dog home? Can a dog actually change our personality and mental state? Also, do horses have balls? And most important; are hamsters, in fact, bullshit?

Lily is the founder of hit comedy cabaret group The Ruby Darlings, producing comedy songs with a fabulously sardonic focus on feminism and sexual politics. The group earned 5* reviews and sold-out crowds both sides of the pond at Edinburgh and Orlando Fringe Festivals. Transitioning seamlessly to stand-up in 2017, Lily is finding wide acclaim on the London comedy circuit. She's performed at the Gotham Comedy Club in New York, recorded for Comedy Central, and was a finalist at Funny Women in 2018. She and Steve's 2018 Edinburgh show was called "Hoo-Ha!" where they shared a bill for the whole run to lovely reviews, weird crowds, and shockingly they are still seemingly friends.

Ep. 6: “Naz” with Maisie Adam.

Ep. 6: “Naz” with Maisie Adam.

February 25, 2019

Ok, so what's "Naz", then?

In our sixth instalment, Steve sits down with affable rising star comedian Maisie Adam to discuss a loving word that has no English translation; "Naz". In an endearingly open-hearted chat, Maisie lays out the case for personal pride, the pitfalls of pedestals and how she finally found the perfect partnership.

Is the pride you feel from being loved enough to sustain you if you don't love yourself 100%? Should we even need someone else to complete us at all? Could that person even love the incomplete version of us? Can we learn to love our scars, real and imagined? And for God's sake, can't we get no satisfaction?

Maisie is the proud winner of So You Think You're Funny 2017 and the Amused Moose National New Comic Award in 2018. She's currently cracking onto television with ITV2's "The Stand-Up Sketch Show", and her debut hour "Vague" was a sell-out smash at last year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival, earning her rave reviews and a nomination for Best Newcomer. "Vague" is soon to be filmed and streamed with NextUp Comedy, and it's a cracking hour of laughs that's not to be missed. And keep 'em peeled for her next hour, coming to the fringe later this year.

Ep. 5: “Philia” with David Trumble.

Ep. 5: “Philia” with David Trumble.

February 18, 2019

And we're five by five! It's day vs night as Steve sits down with his own identical twin brother; artist and storyteller David Trumble. Over a snifter of whiskey, the Brothers Trumble draw upon nearly 33 years of living side by side to both interrogate and celebrate the turbulent bond that is brotherhood. In a lifetime-spanning, raucous and admirably candid chat, they ask each other questions they've never asked, shed light on memories halved, and mediate the trading of both comedic and literal blows. Should we all treat the rest of the world as our brother? Is your brother your best friend or your worst enemy, like in the stories? Does one brother being an extrovert turn the other into an introvert? And who in the hell is talking right now?

David is an award-winning cartoonist, author and illustrator. He started out doing political cartoons for one of the largest newspapers in the world and since has found his storytelling passion writing and illustrating children's books as well as working as a story artist for animated movies. He is also an accomplished public speaker, giving speeches (including two Tedx Talks) on storytelling, discovery and creativity.

Ep. 4: “Nostalgia” with William Stone.

Ep. 4: “Nostalgia” with William Stone.

February 11, 2019

The Fourth is with us! Steve sits down with William Stone, a comedian whose well-honed on-stage persona is like a quantum-locked throwback to a brighter, happier, funnier time. In a thoughtful and considered chat, Billy and Steve cut deep into their own pasts to answer the nagging questions of the present: Were the good ol' days really so? Can Jar-Jar Binks be fixed in one single scene rewrite? Does anyone ever get to live in the decade they were born for? Does the current "trend" of big-reveal confessional comedy really have more integrity than honest-to-goodness jokes and clowning? And will we ever see a return to the time when comedy was uncalculating, child-like and for everyone?

In 2018 William was a finalist in the BBC New Comedy Award, appearing on BBC Radio4 and BBC Radio2. In 2019 he is doing his first solo comedy show "Gathering Moss" at Brighton and Edinburgh fringe festivals. Definitely a talent to watch and follow; a one-liner comedian that truly feels singular.

Ep. 3: “Connoisseurship” with Harriet Braine.

Ep. 3: “Connoisseurship” with Harriet Braine.

February 4, 2019

In our tricky third album, Steve geeks out about loving art with the arty and lovely Harriet Braine. Harriet is a musical comedian who delights in being described as "fairly niche". In a wide-ranging chat we discuss art history, our talented families, funny dads, incongruous hands, snobby robots, how beauty and genius are the hidden villains of art, and how horny imps and illness are its saviour.

in 2016, Harriet won Best Newcomer at the Musical Comedy Awards and the much-coveted Funny Women "Stage Award". Her 2017 debut Edinburgh show "Total Eclipse Of The Art" was a sold-out hit. She'll be returning to the fringe this year with something altogether new and exciting, so do go see that too!

Ep. 2: “White Knight Syndrome” with Pope Lonergan.

Ep. 2: “White Knight Syndrome” with Pope Lonergan.

January 28, 2019

In our sophomore instalment, Steve sits down with the gloriously unpredictable, loveably frayed-round-the-edges, sometimes frankly terrifying comedian Pope Lonergan. With swords and cricket bats brandished, they embark on a perilous quest to discover the darker side of virtue, braving all manner of monsters, nightmares and riddles along the way. Is it possible to love someone by saving them? Who's going to save them from you? And why is that tugboat speaking in a Welsh accent?

Pope is a London-based comedian known for his provocative, brutally candid material. His show "Pope's Addiction Clinic" just finished a sold-out run at London's VAULT Festival and will be heading to Brighton and Edinburgh Fringes in 2019.

Ep. 1: “Soulmates” with Kelly Convey.

January 21, 2019

In our inaugural love fest, Steve sits down with rising star Kelly Convey to discuss the decidedly pinteresting existence of "Soulmates" and go on a fact-finding soul-searching mission to identify (and lock down) hers. Kelly is a stand-up comedian, and will be supporting Russell Kane and Alan Carr on tour this year, as well as doing her debut hour-long Edinburgh Fringe show. Definitely one to follow and let brighten your day.
