Top of the pods: this month’s comedy podcast pick

Posted at 10:15 am, February 1, 2015 in Arts & Entertainment
Sofie Hagen.

Comedians Telling Stuff

Who’s the host? London-based Danish stand-up Sofie Hagen.

What’s the format? Well, the clue’s in the title, really. It’s all story-based laughs here. Each series features six comics offering (often embarrassing) tales on six themes, with each topic getting its own episode. Themes such as? First gigs, worst gigs, best heckles – the kind of things they would josh about backstage at a club. Guests so far have included Russell Kane, Nick Helm and Katherine Ryan, among others.

Is it funny for us non-comedians? Definitely. Hearing a stand-up talk about the time they died a horrific death is never not funny – their pain is your pleasure. The ‘backstage sexytime’ episode often brings up some bizarrely funny stories, too.

Where can I listen? Head to comedianstellingstuff.com.
