2014 Episode 22 – Gordon Southern

Episode 22 was recorded in the Pleasance Dome with the lovely Gordon Southern. He was my first guest on the podcast last year, but my recorder didn’t work, so we thought we’d try again. We discussed how much fun it is to try new things as a performer, and how you have to evolve as a comedian over the years to keep it fresh.

If you’re on twitter, him a follow @GordonSouthern. You should also go see his show! All the details can be found here.
