Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 265 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! A great one here with comedian, podcaster and metaler ED GAMBLE!
You will most certainly have enjoyed Ed on his ‘Off Menu’ podcast with James Acaster (if not, see to it that you amend that post-haste!), or indeed on Mock The Week (and many more shows besides), but if you are yet unfamiliar with him this is a great chance to become acquainted! Get the full backstory right here, which - as you’ll hear, includes everything from the perfect simplicity of said podcast, his love of metal and the many strands within the genre, the complex relationship he and Pip share with nu-metal, the joy of Steve Coogan, glory days in Durham, what he thinks of ‘work in progress’ shows, pure Ben & Jerry’s madness including an offshoot podcast which will be along in the forthcoming months revolving entirely around the delicious foodstuff (and wine), the benefits of having no professional jealousy (for the most part) and the cyclical world of tv, standup and Edinburgh Fringe. Excellent stuff, you can be sure, and get along to one of his show specials at Leicester Square Theatre too - you’re in for treats!!!
