Interview with Rich Wilson (Comedian)
On this very special interview episode of the Banned Biographies Podcast, Tom talks to Rich Wilson, an award winning comedian who has performed sell out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe, Adelaide Fringe, Melbourne Comedy Festival and the New Zealand Comedy Festival.
Rich is also the host of the Insane In The Men Brain Podcast where he talks to funny and interesting people about their experiences with mental health. In the last year the podcast has been nominated for an award with Podbible and in 2019 won an award with JOE for best podcast.
Rich is the first comedian I’ve had on Banned Biographies and the reason for that is that I hear him bring up music on his podcast fairly often and his guests don't often indulge him - plus the fact he has a show on Islington Radio called The Tuned Up Time Machine - so, I reached out to ask of he’d like to have a long form conversation about music and he jumped at the chance, which was flattering.
In this conversation we talk about his favourite bands, best gigs he’s ever been to and played, the best and worst things about music (including how shit Sex On Fire by Kings Of Leon is!), the similarities between musicians and comedians, how society is too clean and safe right now, and so much more as well as a fair bit about his career in comedy.
This was such an easy, free-wheeling conversation to have and I’m so grateful to Rich for giving up a couple of hours of his day to shoot the breeze with me about a subject that’s clearly dear to both our hearts.
If this is your first time listening to Banned Biographies, I do audio documentaries on bands, a lot of which we touch upon in this episode, and I’ve interviewed musicians in bands such as Sham 69, Ash, The Prodigy, English Dogs, Adam Ant’s solo bands, and session musicians for The Selecter, Bow Wow Wow, The Dandy Warhols, Sigue Sigue Sputnik, and many more, so be sure to subscribe on your podcast platform of choice and check out the back catalogue. There’s something there for everyone.
