The Funny Thing About Death

Richard interviews brilliant stand-up Jo Caulfield about her first book, a memoir about the loss of her sister, Annie, The Funny Thing About Death. They talk about why stand-ups don't need cocaine, the honesty and humour required for taking on such a serious subject, the catharsis of writing about something so close, the heart behind the caustic stand-up character, the dangers and the ambivalence to them of hitchhiking in the 70s and 80s and whether Macmillan are a worthy choice for your charitable donations.
