Snogging Debbie Harry

Rich is at Hull City Hall in the penultimate tour show of 2019 (released out of order, just to keep you on your toes) and he's laying into Hull, even though it's nice. His guest is character comedian and erstwhile pop star Graham Fellows.

They chat about the unlikely genesis of Jilted John and what Jimmy Savile thought of him and what it was like to finally take him on tour (John not Jimmy) , how John Shuttleworth emerged also by accident, what it's like when you become older than the character Graham you play, whether it's possible to be taken seriously as a musical artist when you're known for comedy creations, how drive lessens as you get older and the terrifying loss of confidence that saw Graham have to run away from the Fringe.
