This episode of the Varieties focuses on people who have started out as street performers, but who have then gone on to other things. First, we chat to Stuart Goldsmith, one of the fastest rising stand-ups in the country, then we convince The Boy to take The Tape off His Face (Sam Wills) and talk about his roots in street theatre, and finally we talk to leading light of the cabaret and sideshow circuit, and one of the last surviving female sword swallowers, Miss Behave.
