Sinopsis

Being a comedian is the hardest thing anyone can do. As such, those who achieve even a modicum of success in this selfless, humanitarian, dangerous career are rightly held up as the best of us. True heroes. In this series David Reed will interview some of comedy's most available exponents and ask them "Who are you under all that skin?", "When did comedy first bite you?" and "What's the microphone for?" as he delves deeper than anyone has ever delved inside the comedian.
