Comedian Phillip Wragg

Comedian Phillip Wragg

Rosie and stand up comedian Phillip Wragg share memories of their first steps in comedy and how the attitude towards female comedians has changed as well the way LGBT material is used. Philip won the Comedy Virgins Comedy Competition and has plenty of gigs coming up in London in February. The next one is on 7th February at the Monkey Business Comedy Club in Kentish Town. You can find out more on Phillip’s website.

We will hear from the Pink Singers again, who prepare their 30th anniversary concert on 19th January. Reporter Jen Kerrison visited their rehearsals and found out what makes the Pink Singers so special for the LGBT community and how their choice of songs has developed over the years.

Rosie is also joined by Liz Collier and Alex Karotsch who launch the independent gay film festival Fringe! with a fundraising party on 19th January at Vogue Fabrics in Dalston. On the programme are short films and then party with five DJs, among them Sandra Le (Dick and Fanny). They tell us what motivated them to set up the festival and what we can expect this year between 11th and 15thApril. More details on FrinGe!

For rights reasons the music is not on the podcast, but that’s what you could hear on the show:

1) The Hidden Cameras: ‘In The NA’ from the album “Origin: Orphan”

2) Bridie O’Brien: ‘Liar’ from the album “Soft Side Of Dark”
