A little while ago I was asked by my friend Doug Gordon to co-host his podcast Open Mic Life with him, whilst Dilruk Jayasinha was away. Usually when one of the hosts is away they get a previous guest to come on – and bring a friend of theirs on as a guest. So I got to go on and I picked Adam as my friend to chat to. Open Mic Life is a great local podcast that is all about starting out in stand-up comedy. I would definitely recommend it to newb comedians.
During that week I had been gigging with Adam Richard and Nath Valvo doing the LOL Comedy rooms. That’s a pretty sweet gig where you perform with the same peeps all week who are basically always big names. Previously I’ve done it with people like Dave O’Neil and Greg Fleet.
Adam and I have known each other for a couple of years through our commerical radio pasts. It’s an exciting time for Adam at the moment as he’s just finished up at Fox FM’s Matt & Jo show (where i recently worked with him – he was lucky enough to sit next to me) and has started as a team captain on Spicks and Specks.
We spoke about his 17 year comedy career, how he is no longer “Fabulous” more “Affordable” Adam Richard now that he’s with the ABC, radio and a whole bunch of other stuff. I’m really happy with the episode – a good mix of funny and informative.
Av a listen!
