Brendon Burns - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #111

Welcome welcome welcome (no John Oliver) to your weekly Distraction Pieces podcast with Scroobius Pip! It's been an all the way live run of DPP goodness of late with Pip's UK book tour (hopefully you made it to a show or caught the book), but here he nails down an in-person in-studio guest - Perth's very own comic genius Brendon Burns!

Wonderful stuff from start to end, with a lively tale of Brendon's upbringing and comic roots - which includes one of the simultaneously greatest and most horrible first show stories which is perfectly painful - and his influences stemming from black comics back in the 70s, politics and the hard left, how to work a crowd and the science of doing so, spoken word and poetry and what they are, Australia, wrestling talk (pertinent to his show with Colt Cabana) and good old fashioned podcast chat! Freeflowing and satisfying, get in and enjoy...

...And for sure you'll want to peep his own podcast too - 'Dumb White Guy', which is available here:
