“Audiences are bored of Brexit-themed comedy”
So say Geoff Norcott and Ayesha Hazarika, two stand-up comedians who voted on opposing sides of the E.U. referendum - and who join Chopper for this special edition of the podcast.
Politics looms large for both of them: Norcott counts himself as the only outwardly Conservative voter on the British comedy circuit; and until a few years ago, Hazarika served as a political adviser to senior Labour Party figures including Harriet Harman and Ed Miliband.
In a lively, wide-ranging conversation, they discuss the comedic pitfalls of Brexit, the resounding influence of Spitting Image, the strange absence of leave-voting comics on the TV circuit -- and reveal the strangest reactions they’ve had to their sets around the UK.
