This episode was recorded in London.
There have only been a few of my comedy super star friends who when I asked them to appear on my podcast declined and then there is the opposite example of Stephen K Amos who when I asked him said "Of course, how soon can we record?"
I met Stephen about 15 years ago when he was in his early years of being a comedian at the Comedy Store in London. I love everything about this man!
Aside from being one of the kindest souls I've ever met in the business, I love his style of dress, his flow of material as a comedian and the charming sucker punches of his punch lines. He deserves every drop of success he has gotten and I'm genuinely happy for him and his current elevation that he is flying at.
He has done 11 Edinburgh one hour shows and has just come out with a book called 'Finding The Funny'. Currently hosts a show on BBC Radio called 'The Idiots Guide To Life' which I recorded a segment for at Stephen's request.
In this conversation he walks me through the steps he took to become the massive world wide comedy super star that he is today as well the triumphs and tribulations he has experienced in the years since I saw him last. He is one of those people who if I don't see him for years that when I do it's like we never lost a minute in between.
He never fails to make me laugh when we are together and as a comedian he has truck loads of wisdom to share from all of his life experiences. It is my pleasure to present to you the human masterpiece that is Stephen K Amos!
