In this episode, I’m talking to Birmingham-based Indian comedian Mickey Sharma, shortly before he went off to the Edinburgh Fringe in August 2016. Mickey has enjoyed a fascinating career to date, and he tells me about some of the highs and lows of his journey to becoming a professional comedian. Including his disastrous first time on stage, his successes and failures at some of the biggest British comedy clubs, and the heartbreaking, and uplifting, experiences he had during his first ever year at the Edinburgh Fringe. This is part one of the interview. Part two will be going online in the very near future. You can find out more about Mickey Sharma by visiting his website or by following him on Twitter.
