Stand-up comic David Heti invites a guest to air and discuss a grievance against him. Accusation, argumentation, recrimination and more, it’s an intimate, honest, and—at least for David—generally quite entirely uncomfortable exchange.www.davidheti.com
I suppose maybe our first "very special" episode, as my guest is none other than my Father. Sometimes I end up going home for a bit when in between living and doing shows and floating around other places. My Father was reluctant to come on, for various understandable reasons.
Eric’s an academic and we once went to give some talk and apparently I was a bit of a cunt when I had some place to be though he could’ve spoken up, no, don’t you think? He’s a lovely guy and it’s a delight to hear him put words together da da da da da.
Comic Dom Paré doesn’t really hold back. In addition to just talking all over about the world of stand-up, he tells me what I’ve done to alienate others in the stand-up community. Honest, thoughtful, direct and maybe just a little bit bitter, there are few comics I enjoy talking with, listening to more. @dpare
Very good old friend Mike, with love and concern and then irritation, calls me on my general pessimistic outlook and inappropriate gynaecological favour-askings. He also takes issue with at least one past guest, which really isn’t on me. Much warmth, laughter.
With an all too rare honesty, warmth and matter-of-factness, Daniel will tell you what’s on his mind. From asexuality and noblesse oblige to disappointing my parents, this is perhaps the recording which I enjoyed making most. Few people will ever say such things to me again, I believe.
Self-proclaimed “a bit shy and a bit awkward” comic Eric Andrews kind of plays around with the form or something. I’m still not really sure what he did or what were his intentions, but it was exhausting and I really enjoyed myself.
