Part two of the interview sees Richard talking about his standup.
He explores his status and persona onstage, admits which subjects he finds difficult to include in his act, and reflects on his frustration at being labelled derivative of his ex-double act partner.
We also discuss the future of comedy in Britain and Richard’s optimism in the face of a changing landscape.
