CLOGG Cast - John-Luke Roberts

Hello, welcome to CLOGG-CAST! As I can’t currently run my alternative comedy night called ‘CLOGG Comedy’ and as we all have to be indoors, I have started a mini podcast series. Join me as I chat to various unique comedy acts.

CLOGG essentially means comedians laughter LOGG. It aimed to be a welcoming space open to acts to practice their highest level of comedy. I hope that it acted as a network for acts to join the forces of stand-up, musical, sketch and character comedy. As well as a safe space for performers to explore many topics and styles of comedy craziness.

John-Luke is the co-founder of hugely successful Alternative Comedy Memorial Society, which he hosts with co-co-founder (also a co-founder) and nemesis Thom Tuck. The ACMS aims to celebrate Noble Failure, and give a home to the strange and different in live comedy.

If there are ACMS fans listening then tweet @jlukeroberts, @AltComMemSoc or myself @CLOGGCOMEDY with your fave or weirdest ACMS memories.

He has also written for Have I Got News For You, Newzoids and Nevermind the Buzzcocks, and received the BBC Radio Comedy Writers Bursary in 2009.

I bet the sculptors at Madame Tussaud’s wish that every now and then a candle would become famous or be elected to public office just to make life easier.
