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.
