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

Posted at 3:30 pm, May 10, 2015 in Arts & Entertainment


Chris Coltrane and Lolitics

‘Lolitics’? A mix of ‘lols’ and ‘politics’? Correct! Good work. Disappointed by last week’s result? Elated? Don’t care? Or just wish politics was funnier? Chris Coltrane’s podcast can help.

What’s the format? It’s a mix of political chat from Coltrane – a passionate, anti-Tory activist-comedian – and live stand-up recorded at his monthly lefty gig at Camden’s Black Heart.

Stand-up from whom? Political comedy maestros Robin Ince and Josie Long are regulars, and other guests have included Foster’s Awards nominee Liam Williams and Pappy’s member Matthew Crosby.

I’m a Conservative. Will I enjoy it? Er, probably not. Sorry. But it’s not just Tory-bashing. It’s Tory-bashing with jokes.

Where can I listen? Head to chriscoltrane.co.uk.

And can I see it live? Of course! Lolitics runs monthly – see our listing for info.
