Podcast: The Spinoff’s Unnamed Comedy Festival Pod – Week 2 feat Acaster, Assadi & a bad heckler

We didn’t know what to do about the Comedy Festival, so convened a motley trio of know-nothing punters to talk about it.


Host Alex Casey is joined by The Spinoff editor Duncan Greive and internet sensation Paul Williams to discuss the second week of the New Zealand Comedy Festival. Acts assessed include James Acaster, Eli Matthewson, Pax Assadi and Alice, Donna & Brynley. Paul has a very good heckler story, and reviews his own brother.
