Interview with Phillip Wragg

Phillip Wragg

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

Phillip Wragg: My first gig was in May 2011 at the Comedy Virgins night at the Cavendish Arms in Stockwell. I was pretty nervous but got there to find out that the audience decides the running order and that it’s run as a competition. I really enjoyed it though and managed to come 2nd in the vote off.

Comedy Blogedy: How would you describe your comedy?

Phillip Wragg: Slightly camp, observational humour. I talk about the reality of being a gay man, relationships, sex and more general day to day stuff. I don’t do gags, I prefer each set to have a clear arc – that’s just my writing style, also it’s easier to remember!

The Custard Chucker: I’ve been playing Musical Comedy Songs around the country for the past twelve years but only started writing ‘Jokes’ and incorporating Stand Up comedy in my act for the last two years. (That answer makes me sound like one of two things… A veteran in comedy or an Old Age Pensioner lol)

Also included in my acts are political, topical and observational comedy .

Chris Gau: I’ve been gigging since April 2011.

Comedy Blogedy: How would you describe your comedy?

Chris Gau: Slapdash with a soupcon of amateur hour.

Comedy Blogedy: Which comedians influence your comedy?

Chris Gau: I love Louis CK. Americans have got the craft down. But I love English comedians like Paul Foot & Tim Key. We English have got the silly down.
