Union JACK wants to hear unusual & innovative comics

"If people say It's safe, that's not really what we want to hear. We want clever ideas which will appeal to a wider audience. We want to hear 'unusual' and 'innovative'. Some people may say: It's crazy. It will never work, but that's fine. We like to hear that. 'Safe' is what everyone else is doing. We are not interested in that."

That's what Donnach O'Driscoll told me when I chatted to him. Strangely, I believed him. He is the CEO of Union JACK Radio. They are now one of the sponsors of the Leicester Comedy Festival and Leicester Comedy Festival boss Geoff Rowe is now part-time Director of Comedy at Union JACK.
