Ben Bailey Smith AKA Doc Brown is a prodigious talent, with clean-cut standup and roof-raising comedy rap, as well as a parallel career as an influential and respected rapper. But his ostensibly industrial self-belief conceals a "patchwork of anxiety and depression". We talk about the state of mind that led him to turn down a 220-date national tour, how his stage name became a millstone, and why he struggles to make a meal he wouldn't eat himself...
Extra content available to donors at www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders includes the full story on how Doc wrote and prepared for hosting the LA BAFTAS in 2016, and how to improvise in front of Samuel L Jackson. We also learn why Doc's change in career is kind of Stu's fault...
