248 – Sophie Willan

Posted 9 months ago on May 28th, 2018.

Sophie is a hurricane of comedy in action. Possessed of a singular voice, she focuses her wit on genuinely important subject matter, including the cuts to social and mental health care services.  We talk about obtaining government funding for her comedy tours, the "politics of politeness", and what happens after the conversation about class in comedy...   Hear extra material from this conversation with Sophie, as well as extras from Russell Howard, James Acaster and more, plus a load of other interactive comedy projects...
