352 – Alasdair Beckett-King

Posted 4 weeks ago on October 29th, 2020.

The inter-dimensional ABK is a brilliantly original comic with a penchant for wordy intelligent material that leaves no-one behind. He’s also the creator of the most absurdly wonderful animated trailer for an Edinburgh show you’ve ever seen.

We talk about why he never likes to be part of a group; attention to detail and the merits of commitment; and gives his thoughts on how we get to the A-timeline…

20 minutes of extra content available exclusively to members of the Insiders Club include Alasdair gives a fascinating example of using jokes as a means of hiding internal mechanics when scripting video games, and ponders potentially falling between the two stools of arty and club comedy.  Go to www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders for this and much, much more.
