266 – Ismo Leikola

Posted 9 months ago on October 22nd, 2018.

Crowned "Funniest Person In The World" at the Hollywood Laugh Factory, Finnish Ismo is often described as a Scandinavian Mitch Hedberg.  We discuss his intertwined logic and absurdity, learn how his fascination with jokes annoys even other comics, and analyse "Are you happy?" as a trick question... Extra material for members of the Insiders Club includes Ismo on the perfect joke, what not to assume of your audience, and an example of a joke in Finnish translated into English, all on the private podcast at www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders Stu’s 2019 tour of “End Of” has just gone on sale!
