In an industry awash with “edgelord” comedians, Fin Taylor is the real deal. Erudite, thunderously funny, and provocative having done the reading first, he manages to annoy absolutely everybody.
We talk about how his unusual schooling instilled in him an apparent license to infuriate; how his need to row back from the furthest possible point makes his new material gigs so painful; how he went turbo after an agent-shedding Edinburgh decision; and why he finds self-worth in his material not the audience’s approval…
35 mins of extra content from this interview is available exclusively to the Insiders Club!
We discover an underground route for UK comics hoping to break America; how to bring a knife to a roast battle; Fin’s new focus on writing prose; and he continues to chip away at the omertà code of silence of the Bearpit Podcast Podcast…
