Video Interview: Sofie Hagen Meets Hill & Weedon

June 5, 2013 |

Comedy Chords’ intrepid reporter Sofie Hagen met up with this year’s musical kings of comedy Hill & Weedon (Robin Hill and Theo Weedon). The comedy duo were crowned outright winners of the 2013 Musical Comedy Awards at the Bloomsbury Theatre thanks to their ten minute set boasting Oscar winning Jurassic impersonations and a song they wrote for none other than the Orcs from Lord of the Rings.

Weedon provides the straight faced guitarist side of the comedy duo whilst Hill puts in a somewhat more energetic side whilst providing lead vocals/dinosaur shrieks.

Being the duo that they are it was only natural that Sofie took it upon herself to find out who did indeed really win. Read More

This week sees the final epsiode of the first series of John Dredge’s Nothing To Do With Anything Show. Today’s indie comedy special includes the brand new single by Fractious Nit and a chat with pop twinnock Rex Twix.

The music mayhem continues with Madonna and Morrissey (shown above wearing masks of each other in a jolly little jape) arguing in the kitchen, and there’s another mention of New Malden and the odd uncanny reference to….. steam engines.

Not only that but John is still on the look out for people to take part in the Get in the Sideboard with a Crazed Lion feature, so do get in touch. Read More

He also confessed that the Montreal and Edinburgh festivals were the two best things that could have happened to himand began hinting at how hard it really is to get shows off the ground in the US. Let’s pick up where we left off… Read More

Mick Foley Interview (Part One): Tales From Wrestling Past

April 2, 2013 |

So, before diving into this Mick Foley interview, I feel it would be remiss of me not to mention that I have a substantial interest in professional wrestling (there’ll be a photo of me somewhere on this page that should emphasise my claims of wrestling geekery, I mean, look at me). Mick Foley, well, he was always one of my favourites, I have followed his career through wrestling, writing, his role as the subject of documentaries, and now, I’m following his career as a stand-up comedian.

Paul F Tompkins on coming to London: “They might be sociopaths.”

April 2, 2013 |

I ate eight salmon rolls, drank a can of diet coke and sat down on my floor to do an interview with Paul F. Tompkins. Not because I am particularly against chairs and comfortable seating, but because my room is so tiny that there is not room for anything else than a single bed. And that is the setting in which I conducted an interview with one of the greatest and most interesting comedians in the world. Self-consciously I stuttered my way through the conversation – at certain times I was almost certain that he knew that I was sat on the floor, that my foot was sleeping, that my breath smelled of salmon and most of all, that I had no idea what I was doing. If Paul F Tompkins did in fact know all of this, he showed no sign of it and we actually managed to talk for 17 minutes and 31 seconds – not that anyone is counting – and whilst most of it was me attempting to remember the English language, we also drew a pretty good outline of what his expectations to his forthcoming show in London are.
