PODCAST EP.32 – TASH DEMETRIOU
Episode 32 of the podcast features a conversation with Natasia Demetriou who I met a couple of years ago at The Invisible Dot, a comedy venue in King’s Cross (that I’ve just heard is closing apparently). I was MCing the evening and Tash came on stage in a pizza (or possibly nacho) costume. She proceeded to slip in and out of a weird Mexican (?) accent, occasionally singing and doing an amusingly half hearted sexy dance. That may not sound good but it was the funniest thing I’d seen for a while.
She was in a pilot for BBC3 show called People Time with her sometime comedy partner Ellie White, her brother Jamie, Liam Williams, Alistair Roberts, Daran Johnson and Claudia O’Doherty -- some of the funniest people around at the moment for my money. This year they’ve been getting together (minus Claudia) to do a monthly web series called ’2016 Friends’ on Vimeo. It reminds me of some of Tim & Eric’s stuff in parts and is frequently terrific. You’ll find July’s episode (directed by Tash and Tom Kingsley) below.
My conversation with Tash was recorded on 28th June 2016 in London. I had recorded my podcast with Sally Wainwright earlier in the day and this was a nice contrast; an altogether sillier exchange that distracted from the post Brexit gloom.
Thanks to Seamus Murphy Mitchell for production support and Matt Lamont for additional editing.
Thanks as well to Dan Hawkins who kindly offered his services as an on line bass player and ended up providing a bass part for a new jingle on this week’s episode. Dan’s website is HERE.
I hug you for too long.
