Interview with Lea Emery

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

Lea Emery: I’ve been gigging for about a year, I think I’m around 30 gigs in.

Comedy Blogedy: How would you describe your comedy?

Lea Emery: It’s self-deprecation the whole way through– essentially a chronicle of embarrassing stories and social anxieties but exaggerated.

Comedy Blogedy: Which comedians influence your comedy? 

Lea Emery: As far as my set I actually get a lot from TV shows like 30 Rock and Miranda, or at least like to think I have a similar style. Comedians that I love at the minute are Louis CK and have been having a second love of George Carlin- which means spending way too much time on Youtube.

Interview with Dean Sekhon

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

Dean Sekhon: I’ve been doing it quite infrequently since November last year, so not very long, about 4 months, but I’ve made it on to comedyblogedy.com already so I must be doing something right. 

Comedy Blogedy:  How would you describe your comedy?

Dean Sekhon: It’s more or less just some silly, self deprecating, one liners strung together with very tenuous links. It also involves never remembering any of my jokes when I’m on stage, but that’s not an affectation, I’m just an idiot.

Interview with Elf Lyons

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

Elf Lyons: My first gig was on October 16th at the Kings Head in Crouch End. It was 2008 and I was 17 years old. Since then I’ve been gigging on and off, balancing between my studies and various deadlines.

Comedy Blogedy: How would you describe your comedy?

Elf Lyons: Ramshackle is probably the best word, alongside enthusiastic. I’m very energetic on stage and my routines and stories dodge and dive between each other in a very improvised and scatty order.
