Amy Bird: Back in Rehab

Tonight (and I do mean tonight, this is very fresh) we talked with brilliant improv veteran and slightly newish stand up Amy Bird about the differences between the two disciplines, her interest in fraud, our ADHD, all of the shows she’s got coming up and some really serious issues around the safety of the NZ Comedy scene for women, and why men should just shut up sometimes… It may seem hypocritical for two blokes with a podcast, but Mat and Darran agree. Shut up fellas.

Stuff article on sexual harassment in the comedy scene.

To Aotearoa New Zealand, Mexico, and the racist pubs in Nevada; Auckland comedy legend Ed Rivera needs no introduction. In this bumper second episode of season two, Auckland’s third most popular Mexican comic tells Mat and Darran about his journey to New Zealand, and his growth as an international comic in both English and Spanish.

If you speak English, this episode is almost entirely in English. For Spanish speakers, it’s also almost entirely in English.

You can listen to Ed Rivera’s own podcast here and on all the apps.

And you can follow him on Facebook here.

What a journey!

In this messy and poorly hosted episode (thanks Mat D!) Darran and Mat talk about Coombe and friends with the Christchurch / Auckland Power-house duo and Only Fans money makers Craig Westenberg and Matt Coombe.

If you want to learn more about how to support patients suffering with snake aids, and you can get to Christchurch on Friday 27 November at 8:30pm, you should consider buying tickets (and maybe even turning up) to Coombe and Friends. Check out the tickets here: https://events.humanitix.com/coombe-and-friends

If you want to find out more about Craig and Coombe’s most embarrassing moments or why Coombe is big in Hawaii then listen on.
