Kirsten Brown

Originally not aired on ??/??/????

Hello everyone, I normally hate airing my dirty laundry in public, but this fucking stinks.

It’s come to my attention that Marc Maron thinks it’s acceptable to belittle newer podcast hosts.

A Chai Warrior (what I call my fans) got in touch yesterday to let me know the latest episode of Marc’s podcast “WTF” is a complete assault on my show. I haven’t verified this claim yet, but apparently Marc had Bobby Ball in the garage and they spent the whole time slagging off the show for being “too unrecorded.” 

Umm, yeah, that’s kind of the point guys...

Marc is someone I respect, but if he’s gonna carry on being an absolute gobshite, then I will have no hesitation in banning him from ever being a guest on my show. 

How about we all stay in our lane, do our art, and just make our own fans happy, Marc?

Right, sorry about that, let’s get on with the show...

Probably the nicest chat I’ve hard so far, Kirsten Brown came on today’s show determined to leave a good impression.

Kirsten rocked up with a gift, in the form of a Curly Wurly bar, and set an example for all future guests to follow. The complete opposite of a diva, Kirsten’s only worry seemed to be whether I was having a good time.

It was so refreshing to have a proper chat with someone so genuine. Sometimes when you’re out in Edinburgh and talking to other comedians, it can feel as though they’re weighing up how important you are to their career. They look at you like you’re a piece of meat — either a tasty rump that can nourish their chances of success, or a rotting off-cut to be discarded as quickly as possible.

Kirsten said she felt this too.

“It’s almost as if they’re looking over your shoulder, scanning for someone more important to talk to.”

“I know exactly what you mean, Kirsten.”

The conversation ended when I saw Sarah Millican on the table behind us and went to try and talk to her instead.

Tune in tomorrow! X
