EPISODE 107: DR OLIVER DOUBLE

A RICH COMIC LIFE PODCAST

11-11-2023 • 1 hr 33 mins

In this episode, I talk to Dr Oliver Double.

Dr Double is an academic and was previously an accomplished stand-up comedian who regularly played the circuit and created Sheffield’s longest running comedy club, The Last Laugh. Since 1999, he has been based at the University of Kent School of Arts, teaching and researching comic and popular performance.  He has written several books and has helped to establish The British Stand Up Comedy Archive (BSUCA).  Dr Double is also the regular compere of the Funny Rabbit Comedy Club performing at the Gulbenkian Theatre, Canterbury.

I first saw Dr Double at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2015 where he interviewed Jo Brand and Alexei Sayle for his Talking Comedy series.  I visited the Bristol Slapstick Festival in 2023 where Double was a guest of Robin Ince talking about the books of Monty Python.  In 2023, I visited twice the BSUCA, where I watched Double compere a Funny Rabbit Comedy night, and I am very proud to say that the comedians’ interviews featured in my podcast are being added to the Archive collection.
