    52: Seann Walsh – The (Absolute Master) Comedian

    Seann Walsh is a regular face on British TV. You’ll have seen him on Saturday night’s sports panel show Play To The Whistle and as team captain on comedy quiz show Virtually Famous.

    Other recent TV appearances include Live At The Apollo, the Jonathan Ross Show, Tonight at The London Palladium, Channel 4’s 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Alan Carr: Chatty Man and Russell Howards Stand Up Central.

    This guy is everywhere! But there’s good reason for it. For however disheveled he may be, the Foster’s Comedy Award nominee is also one of the hottest comics in the UK right now and also taking America by storm. Last week Seann made his big debut on America’s popular late night talk show Conan O’Brien. Not bad for having only been in the country for a week!

    With a keen observational mind, Seann Walsh can spot the absurdity in everything and convert it to perfectly delivered stand-up comedy. You might have seen Seann on TV, but he’s something else live – pacing the stage, working the room and reducing crowds to hysterics. Even if he’d probably rather be at home watching Sky Sports News.

    In this episode Seann chats to Caroline Feraday and Claire Bullivant about starting young in the playgrounds, coping with nerves, his genius Michael McIntyre impression and being an absolute master…

    51: Billy Duffy – The Guitar God

    In his 40 years in music, Cult guitarist and songwriting virtuoso Billy Duffy has played with the best – Morrissey, Jagger, Iggy et al. However, it was teaming up with Ian Astbury that launched The Cult into the rock stratosphere hall of fame. With Billy’s songwriting skills and guitar wizardry The Cult enjoyed a streak of huge hits such as ‘She Sells Sanctuary’ and ‘Rain’ before calling it quits in the mid-90s and regrouping in the new millennium.

    Billy’s road to rock-stardom is interesting… growing up in Manchester in the seventies, Billy was friends with a teenage Steven Morrissey – who would go on to be that Morrissey. In fact, it was Billy who introduced Jonny Marr to Morrissey who went on to form The Smiths.

    Find out about it all in this rock ‘n’ roll episode as Billy chats to Caroline Feraday and Claire Bullivant about throwing TVs out of hotel windows, having three hairstyles at once, writing hit songs and being one of the greatest living guitar heroes of the 20/21st century…

    50: Chris Turner – Move over Snoop Dogg – there’s a new freestyle rapper in town… and he’ll make you laugh too!

    You’ve heard of Jay-Z, Eminem and Tupac… well get ready to be amazed by Chris Turner – a middleclass, British white guy who is giving them all a run for their freestyle rapping money.

    Chris made his mark when his debut comedy show Pretty Fly won the ‘Amused Moose People’s Choice Award’ for Best Show at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2014. Since then he’s been picking up awards and impressing audiences in all corners of the globe with his sharply written gags and blisteringly quick improvised raps. He’ll ask an audience for five words and will then proceed to blow their minds with an award worthy improvised rap. It’s genius.

    In this episode Chris chats to Caroline Feraday and Claire Bullivant about studying at Oxford, his huge tongue, being told he’d only live to 25 and his new life in America. He also manages to incorporate the English language’s longest non-scientific word floccinaucinihilipilification into a rap too.

    Prepare to be thoroughly impressed…
