Stand and Deliver podcast episode 25 Arna Spek + Iszi Lawrence

Arna Speck

A two guest bumper edition of the podcast. With the comedy scene on hold, we catch up with comic, Radio 4 history boffin and author Iszi Lawrence. We find out to see how she is managing to keep active during lockdown.

Our second guest is Arna Spek. Originally from the Netherlands, Arna makes dry, self-deprecating observations about London life and odd British behaviour from the perspective of a confused and bumbling outsider.

Arna talks about: starting out at school review shows in the Netherlands, Studying comedy at Kent University, can comedy be taught?, performing in Dutch to an English speaking audience, forgetting your jokes, working in a museum, getting a harsh review, how comedy is different in the Netherlands, juggling standup and having a child + lots more.
