Richard is at the Stand in Newcastle with an enthusiastic Sunday afternoon crowd and he's amazed by the number of ginger hues he can expect in the city. His guest is comedian Lauren Pattison. They talk about how low things had got for her during their last chat in lockdown, how the worst day to dump a comedian is April Fool's Day, how working in Morrison's during the pandemic was surprisingly creatively inspiring, coping with online criticism and how her last Edinburgh show was literally make or break for her and how, approaching thirty, she is overcoming anxiety and believing in herself.
