024. Christian Reilly (part 2)

In this episode I continue my interview with musical comedian Christian Reilly, backstage at Birmingham’s Windsor Theatre where he was headlining a fundraising comedy show for the Labour Party. This is part two of a three-part interview. In part two, Christian talks about his experience working on the award-winning comedy podcast As It Occurs To Me (with Richard Herring, Emma Kennedy and Dan Tetsell). He also tells me about his own writing process, the unique challenges of being a musical comedian, and his favourite comedy routines (including material by Stewart Lee, Tom Stade, Tim Vine and Stewart Francis). You can find out more about Christian Reilly through his website.
