273 – Laura Davis
Incredibly insightful and darkly funny, Laura Davis is a truly gifted artist who holds aspects of herself up to the light and says "you too?" We discuss the iron resolve that took her from an "extremely shy and extremely loud" girlhood, to performing jokes without victims, inside a duvet cover. If you've ever thought of jokes as "ideas refracted through a prism of other people's experience", you're going to love this one... *Content Warning*: This episode contains a discussion of suicidal feelings. Extra content available exclusively to members of the Insiders Club include:
- Some tips on wielding status for naturally shy comedians
- A defence of the right of artists to make shitty work
- A reflection on an early piece of Laura's work in which she deliberately entrapped the audience in an abusive relationship...
