S01E04 Laura Byrne

In this episode of the Fringe Interests podcast, I spoke to Laura Byrne.

Laura has won a national comedy competition, she is the star of two youtube channels, Facts. and Try, she has a big online following and she had a very successful run at Edinburgh with her debut show, End of Daze.

We talked about the show, the events that inspired it, her experiences flyering and watching shows in Edinburgh in previous years that gave her a base of knowledge when she took her show over, and also how she almost took a show over a year too soon.

S01E02 Al Lubel

In this episode I speak to American comic, Al Lubel, about starting doing stand up at the end of the 1970s, gigging with Jerry Seinfeld in the mid 80s, winning a national competition in 1988, appearing on many of the major late night talk shows and winning awards at Edinburgh.

We also talk about not quite being a star and some opportunities that didn't work out. Al was incredibly open and honest in this interview and I hope you enjoy it.
