My name is Spud Murphy and I’ve decided to bring you a comedy podcast; The Comedy Cast. I started this podcast because I wanted to shine a light on all the comedians working hard in the world of comedy to make punters laugh and forget the outside world for a few minutes every time they gig.
I’m a massive comedy fan, but I’m also a massive fan of ‘the new’ as I call it. I realise putting that into quotation marks is a bit pretentious and I’m certainly not pretentious, far from it, but what I mean is that I’m the kind of person that would rather see 10 new comedians once than see the same mega-famous comedian 10 times. There’s so much comedy out there right now and I hope through this podcast I can bring more to the world.
I’m not a stand-up comedian. I’ve never tried it and I probably never will, however, I did play in bands growing up so I know what it’s like to get up in front of people and entertain them. The butterflies in your stomach, the fear of dying on stage and the elation of knowing the crowd are enjoying your music. I listen to loads of comedy podcasts, probably too many and while there are some really great ones I really wanted to make one where the guests were the centre of attention.
I studied journalism in college and ran a music review website and freelanced for a few years so I’m really coming at this podcast with a journalistic eye and while I want to bring as much new comedy to people as possible; be it stand-up comedians or comedy writers/directors etc. I also want to give interviews that aren’t just fluff and licking comedians’ asses. I want to get to know the who, what, why and how behind each comedians’ personal stories.
I hope you enjoy the podcast, if you’d like to subscribe here’s a post about how to do that.
The podcast will be coming out twice per week, on Mondays and Thursdays at around 8pm Central European time
