Interview with David McAndrew

Comedy Blogedy: How long have you been gigging in stand-up? David McAndrew: I did my first open spot in November 2008 and it was a complete disaster – microphone too near my mouth, too drunk, too much swearing, lack of quality, material and practice. What also added to my nerves was that the room had…

Interview with Ryan Withers

Comedy Blogedy: How long have you been gigging in stand-up?

Ryan Withers: Good thanks. I mean 4 years. Sorry I’m such an idiot.

Comedy Blogedy: How would you describe your comedy?

Ryan Withers: It’s kinda silly, I like doing big fun theatrical stand-up shows but make them weird. What’s with all the questions, what is this a Comedy Blogedy interview?

Interview with Si Finnigan

Si Finnigan

Comedy Blogedy: How long have you been gigging in stand-up?

Si Finnigan: I’ve been doing stand up a little over a year now. My first gig was an Open Mic in Huddersfield, my friend drove me all the way to the venue and I remember being so nervous. I walked to the guy behind the bar and asked when the comedy will start; he told me it wasn’t till the next night. I had to go through the whole thing all over again 24 hours later and proceeded to bomb in front of 4 acts, 2 punters and the bartender I spoke with the night before. It was the 20th April, 2011.

Madeleine Culp

Interview with Madeleine Culp

Comedy Blogedy: How long have you been gigging in stand-up?

Madeleine Culp: I’ve been doing solo stand-up comedy from January this year (2012).  Before that I worked in a duo for 3 years.  Doing solo stand-up is fun but took sometime to get used to. I’m still working it out. It’s like a roller coaster… one where you have the fear of popping your pants while you are on it… but it rarely happens. Rarely.

Jed Salisbury

Interview with Jed Salisbury

Comedy Blogedy: How long have you been gigging in stand-up? 

Jed Salisbury: I had my first gig on 1st November 2009, I did a one day comedy writing course called the Art of Comedy in the Hull comedy festival, and I then had my first gig that night. But I’d say I’ve been gigging regularly since June 2010.

Comedy Blogedy: How would you describe your comedy?

Jed Salisbury: If someone took the mischievous crudeness of Frank Skinner, cheekiness of Lenny Henry and edginess of Daniel Tosh threw it in a blender and performed some voodoo on it and placed it in a man that slightly resembled Velma from Scooby Doo… then I guess that would be my act.
