Interview: Morgana Robinson, The Windsors, C4

Morgana Robinson plays Pippa Middleton in The Windsors, returning soon to C4.

 

What can you tell us about the new series of The Windsors?

Auntie Anne has another bee in her bonnet, Harry gets a taste for women's clothes and Pippa wears a lot of Lycra.

What can we expect from Pippa in series two? Is she still as feisty in this series?

Hell yeah. She puts a gypsy curse on Kate and is still lamping peeps in the face.

Interview: Kathryn Drysdale, The Windsors, C4

You play Meghan Markle in the new series of The Windsors. What’s her character like in the show?
The Windsors’ Meghan Markle is a bit more L.A. than the real life Meghan Markle, I suppose. She’s not quite into the whole dressing like she’s a royal quite yet, which is fun to play. There’s a lot of fun to be had with that. She still sees herself very much as a humanitarian, as she’s very much in her own world, and she’s sweet – there’s a sweetness to her which is nice to play with.

Interview: Rarely Asked Questions – Harry Hill

Harry Hill is one of the stars playing a benefit to raise money for comedian Jim Tavare at the Lyric Theatre on June 12. As previously reported, Tavare was involved in a serious car crash in California in March. He is now recovering but despite having medical insurance still faces substantial bills and may never be able to play the double bass again.

Interview: Rarely Asked Questions – Stuart Goldsmith

Stuart Goldsmith is arguably better known for interviewing stand-ups than being a stand-up. His Comedian’s Comedian podcast has become essential listening for anyone remotely interested in how a comedian’s mind works. His latest episode, with Jeremy Hardy, is well worth a listen as Hardy talks about his early days on the circuit and confesses to fiddling his benefits.

Interview: Rarely Asked Questions – Greg Proops

Greg Proops is a bit of a legend. The smart-suited American is a terrific stand-up comedian but may be better known as a master of improvisation. He first made his name in the UK as a regular performer on C4’s Whose Line Is It Anyway? You name it, he can make it funny. Later this month he joins that other great improv institution, The Comedy Store Players – Richard Vranch, Lee Simpson, Andy Smart, Neil Mullarkey and Josie Lawrence – when they play their 20th annual gig at the Globe Theatre.

Interview: Rarely Asked Questions – David Baddiel

David Baddiel's latest show, My Family: Not The Sitcom returns to the West End for the third and final time from March 29. It is honest, touching, audacious and, of course, very funny. Baddiel has found a way to tackle the most delicate of subjects – in this case his father's dementia and his late mother's infidelity – and find humour in them. He makes it look easy. It clearly isn't. Over the years, right back to his early days working with Rob Newman, Baddiel has divided critics and comedy fans.

Interview: Rarely Asked Questions – Tape Face

The Boy With Tape On His Face had done pretty well. Following his success at the Edinburgh Fringe, reaching the final of America's Got Talent and announcing a run on the Las Vegas Strip he is coming to London with his first West End residency starting on June 6. If you haven't seen Tape Face – as he is now known – before, you are in for a genuine treat.

Interview: Rarely Asked Questions – Emma Sidi

Emma Sidi is a comedian on the way up. In the last couple of years she has been busy establishing herself as a formidable personality in all the right places. She has been in TV's Drunk History and online YouTuber satire Pls Like to name two excellent things. And she recently picked up a Chortle Award nomination for Best Character/Variety Act.

Interview: Rarely Asked Questions – Anna Mann

Anna Mann is not really a comedian. She is a veritable artiste who has been in showbusiness for almost as long as Joan Collins. She has recently branched out while she waits for her next big acting job and is offering advice to anyone suffering from black dog in her latest soiree, A Sketch Show For Depressives. Mann is helped in her quest by chameleon character comic Colin Hoult, who you should know from Revolting and Murder In Successville. Have you twigged yet?

Interview: Rarely Asked Questions – Larry Dean

OK, confession time. When I ask question 8 - “I think you are very good at what you do” – I don’t always mean it. It’s there to make comics feel good. But in the case of Larry Dean I really do mean it. Ever since I saw him in the Piccadilly Comedy Club New Comedian of 2013 Final I could see he had something. He won that competition and went on to pick up an Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer nomination in 2015 and win the Amused Moose Comedy Award in 2016.
