This week’s #PodcastPick is episode 63 of Cariad Lloyd’s Griefcast! For a little context about the show, it’s not as sad as it sounds. A comedian herself, Cariad presents the podcast with her usual quick and whimsical wit. She approaches these discussions of grief with both kindness and curiosity; her interest in the emotion stemming from the death of her father when she was 15.
Tessa Coates - sketch comic extraordinaire, trio-of-podcasts host and now stand up - unveiled Primates, her debut solo show, at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2017. Part-autobiography, part-anthropology lecture (and a whole lot hilarious) Primates has just finished a sell-out run at the Soho Theatre. Harpy was lucky enough to snatch half an hour with Tessa to talk about her experience creating the show.
Pritchard-Mclean is unafraid to take on subjects that are tricky to navigate, be it trashing serial killers on her podcast, or finding the humour in her experience of volunteering with vulnerable children for her stand-up show Appropriate Adult. What’s brilliant about her is that she is always careful to ensure that her jokes are hitting the right target.
