JoeBorBackstreet

Joe Bor is a hugely likeable comedian who not only performs stand-up regularly in comedy clubs around the UK, but also appears as character Jasper Cromwell-Jones and does TV warm-up for shows like Mock the Week and The Graham Norton Show.
In this episode, Joe reveals that he is a boy band fan and has a special place in his heart for The Backstreet Boys! We also touch on his love of Made in Chelsea, on which we do not see eye-to-eye, and Joe drops a few names and admits to his celebrity selfie addiction.

Mark Davison is fixated on The Cure, plus diary-keeping and list-making! Fixated Ep 10

Need a new name for Pac-man? We’ve got it in this episode! I’m not quite sure how we got there considering Mark Davison (aka Mr Susie) listed his obsessions as list-making, diary keeping and The Cure. But we did, so there. We discuss emotional admin and have some useful advice if you ever encounter a crocodile. Is Mark a “Dick Whittington twat?” What made us say “poetry? Fuck yes!” Find out in this episode – it’s the big 1-0 (ten, not one-nil).

You should definitely check out Mark in his many guises, like Mr Susie, or as Ian Fiveankles with the other Exploding Heads in How Will They Line Up. His website is bovismavis.wordpress.com and he’s on twitter @iamthemonkey or @mrsusiecomedy.

Andrew Watts is fixated on Granville Sharp | Fixated Ep 9

Comedian Andrew Watts gets historical. I met up with Andrew before he dashed off to perform his critically-acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe show ‘Feminism for Chaps’ to talk about his hero and a key figure in the abolition of the slave trade, Granville Sharp.

Andrew and I discussed all sorts including finding your true calling, why you should always keep the receipt, and why Abraham Lincoln isn’t a patch on old Granny.

John Hastings is fixated on professional WRESTLING! It’s Fixated episode 8.

HastingsWrestling
John Hastings is a great comedian from Canada now based in the UK. He takes a break from recording his own ‘Anything can be a Podcast’ podcast to talk to me about his love of the only sport where you “can watch a policeman fight a mythical ninja from Mars”… Professional wrestling! Over the course of the hour, John and I discuss the common traits of wrestlers and comedians, Beakman’s World and the link between Owen Hart and Rod Hull (listen first then scroll to the bottom of this post for more*). John also manages to plug podcasts by Colt Cabana (The Art of Wrestling), Steve Austin and Brendon Burns, but listen to this one first! For more on pro wrestling events in the UK, I recommend Progress.
Find John at www.johnhastingscomedy.com or on twitter @thejohnhastings.

*After recording the podcast, I found out that Hart and Hull died within two months of each other and Hull was pronounced dead at a hospital in the town of… HASTINGS! Bizarre that two such tragic stories are so closely linked.

The Lizzie McGuire Movie changed my life! Comedian Stephen Bailey is fixated on Hilary Duff and Zac Efron! | Fixated Ep 7

Stephen Bailey is a lovely comedian who you might recognise from Big Brother’s Bit On The Side or from his numerous appearances at live comedy gigs around the UK. The topic of this episode is a little different from some of our geekier topics like Warhammer and Nintendo. Stephen talks to me about two people who have been big inspirations to him… Hilary Duff and Zac Efron!
BaileyDuffEfron
We discuss what I have in common with Mr Efron, how armpit hair can be attractive, being sick in a classy way and how the Lizzie McGuire Movie changed Stephen’s life. We also talk about how we like the American positive attitude, how working at Sainsbury’s can be better than comedy and how everyone should buy ‘suspended coffees’. Who inspired Stephen to do his first comedy gig? What are the best Lucozade flavours? Find out in episode 7!
WARNING! There are a shedload of Lizzie McGuire movie spoilers.
Follow Stephen @StephenComedy and see www.stephenbaileycomedy.co.uk to check out his live dates etc.
