Urbane, charming and totally in touch with what makes him funny, Joe Lycett is the figurehead for a new generation of British comics. We talk technique in detail, digging into 'Pomodoro' and renting an office in which to work. We also cover Joe's bisexuality, the nature of camp and what it means today, and the exact degree of truth involved in his absurdist catfishing of public institutions. This episode was recorded live at the Machynlleth Comedy Festival.
