The British Comedy Guide's own podcast, which talks in-depth to those who create comedy. What Are You Laughing At? is hosted by comedy writer and performer Dave Cohen - one of the founding Comedy Store Players, and latterly a contributor to shows such as Have I Got News For You, Horrible Histories and Not Going Out.

April 2014: We're back! Chris Addison chats in-depth to Dave Cohen about his comedy career, including how he started in stand-up comedy, and his work on shows including Lab Rats, The Thick Of It, and Veep.

He also introduces Trying Again, the new sitcom for Sky Living which he co-created with Simon Blackwell. In the show, he plays a man whose fiancée has had an affair with her boss. Chris explains how the project evolved and what it is like working for Sky TV.
