Regardless of how little I post and how little I’m able to do when it comes to travel and the performing arts these days, I still come across a few related things now and then. This is one of those things.
The Comedian’s Comedian with Stuart Goldsmith is a podcast hosted by Stuart Goldsmith. A performer himself, predominantly in stand-up it seems, he aims to take a look into how other comedians do their thing. The podcast is not meant to be a funny one, but more a sort of an informative kind; a documentary. Doesn’t make it less interesting! This is actually one of the things that I want to channel through this blog: information and resources on various performing arts.
I personally got sucked in when I was looking up another comedian, Nathan Caton. Realizing the possibilities within retrieving good stuff through podcast outlets as well as the numbers of comedy podcasts out there are pretty vast, my preferred podcast outlet was the first place I went to. The first thing I found and downloaded was the Comedian’s Comedian episode with Caton. I really liked the interview and I subscribed for the podcast – and now I’m hooked! Other favorite episodes include Felicity Ward, Jimmy Carr (part one, part two), Russell Howard, and Shappi Khorsandi.
Another thing that I really do appreciate is the Facebook group created for the podcast, recently renamed The ComComPod Community. This is where Goldsmith communicates with the listeners of the podcast – and where the listeners communicate with each other. Every now and then, Goldsmith asks questions to the listeners to be answered in the group, he collects questions for future guests, he gives exclusive information as well as information on his interviewees, and the members of the group not only respond to his inquiries, but also take up relevant subjects every now and then and have a decent discussion on these.
All in all, this is a pretty decent amount of win.
