36 - David Quirk

April 16th, 2013

Episode 39 of 245 episodes

Known for his hyper-personal material about death, infidelity and suicide, David Quirk is happy to be an outsider, to the comedy community as well as his audience. We discuss the tropes of contemporary standup and David’s decision to move away from them; the need to watch other people’s shows or not; and what it feels like to release oneself from the compulsion to be funny. We also touch on negative-sounding noises that mean people hate you.
