Comedian Paul Smith is resident MC of the Hot Water Comedy Club in Liverpool and is quickly becoming one of the best comedians working in the UK.
Neil Delamere joined me on Sunday Night Live to talk about whether or not he’ll be able to work in the north after Brexit, about some of his latest TV projects and his latest stand up comedy show.
Delamere has been one of Ireland’s most well known and hardworking comedians, working on shows like The Panel and the Blame Game for the BBC.
Throwback to when I gigged in front of Kim Jong Un in a gym in North Korea. Pretty sure it was the first comedy gig in North Korea ever, which was nice.
I kicked things off by telling him he had a girls name and that it was hilarious! He didn’t find it funny. Nor did any of his generals or military personal. He’s a bit of tough cookie and not going to lie, it was a struggling trying to build the atmosphere back up from that.
A risky joke to open with that didn’t pay off in the end, but if you don’t chance it, you’ll never get those breaks. How I made it out safely from the country is a story for another time.
Recorded in The Comedy Crunch Dublin as the presidential election results in the United States were just about to come out. A few minutes on the whole Donald Trump versus Hillary Clinton saga.
So, maybe you’re planning on stepping into the wonderful world* of stand up comedy.
*Not always wonderful 😉
Maybe you’re living here in Dublin or maybe you’re coming here and looking for some places to do a couple of sets.
Great, so where should you start?
