Paul Foot has one of the most refreshingly original comic voices in the world. We delve deep into the 13 years he spent being brilliant but unreliable, and the psychological toll imposed by the heroic deaths necessary to achieve genuine excellence. We talk about his writing partnership, his "guild of connoisseurs", and the Australian run of shows that changed everything...
Hungry for more? Experience Paul's jaw-droppingly comprehensive 30 minute explanation of his "seven styles of comedy" (possibly impenetrable to the casual listener), and discover the origin of his utterly unique dress code, all available now to members of the Insiders Club!
