Amy, Tom and Dan are joined in the studio by funny lady Sarah Bridgeman, stand-up and all-round promoter of everything comedy in the Swansea area. As well as performing standup since 2009 and hosting her own open mic comedy night in Swansea, Sarah has just returned from her first stint at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and we ask her how it went and what she learnt from the experience.
We delve face-first into Sarah's world and chat about the time she was in the same audience as Jimmy Carr, her new podcast Blind Dates, and we learn how to lure people into gigs using cake. We also discuss some favourite comedy heroes and some wise words of wisdom for anyone considering live comedy, including how to get started and dealing with a tricky audience.
