The New Comedy Establishment?

I couldn't help noticing recently that a lot of comedians are intertwined. In a fiercely competitve business a lot of solo stand-ups seem to be forming temporary double acts for podcasts and programmes. And the same people keep cropping up, creating what you might want to call, if you were so inclined, the new Comedy Establishment.

Sunday Brunch – Guests James Acaster, Jessie Cave

Comedian James Acaster is one of the guests on this week's Sunday Brunch, hosted by Tim Lovejoy.

It's been a high profile week for Acaster, but not for the reasons expected. He should have been promoting his new Dave comedy Hypothetical, which he co-hosts with Josh Widdicombe and his return to live comedy with a new show about hecklers and heckling and his upcoming new book about giving up social media, but instead has been drawn into the debate over the new Ricky Gervais netflix special, Supernature.

Interview: James Acaster & Josh Widdicombe On The New Series Of Hypothetical

Hypothetically speaking, is the fourth series of a show always the best series?

Josh Widdicombe [JW] I think so - the best series of The Simpsons was the fourth series. Very few comedy entertainment shows hit the ground running and are as good as their fourth or fifth series, because you learn more about the show while making it. Everything about this series feels sharper and snappier. We're in the sweet spot at the moment. The old rounds are tighter and it feels like this series is the show.


New Podcasts From Hypothetical And Jordan Brookes
