023. Christian Reilly (part 1)

In this episode I’m talking to socialist comedian and circuit veteran Christian Reilly, backstage at Birmingham’s Windsor Theatre where he was headlining a fundraising comedy show for the Labour Party. This is part one of a three-part interview. In this episode, Christian talks about how he first got started as a performer, the musicians and comedians who inspired him, and we also delved into the subject of marketing. He also tells about his experiences working with Rich Hall, Bill Bailey and Richard Herring. You can find out more about Christian Reilly through his website.
