Shut up and listen to Alonzo Bodden, a towering comic who wields an absolute authority onstage! In the final pre-pandemic recording, we discover Alonzo's struggles to connect with black audiences, find out why alternative comedy doesn’t exist, and learn whether he’d accept a cure for depression if it meant giving up comedy…

30 mins of extra content available exclusively to members of the Insiders Club include Alonzo’s extraordinary “missed break” after he won season three of Last Comic Standing just as cancellation of the show meant the final was never aired, how Terry Crews beat him to the punch in a big movie role, and how to go up next after a superstar… Join the Insiders Club now at www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders for all this and much much more.


Every Monday and Thursday night at 8pm, Stu Goldsmith’s Infinite Sofa brings you the warmest and most atmospheric cure for the social-isolation blues!

Forthcoming guests include James Acaster, Romesh Ranganathan and Sarah Millican, who with 10 members of the public join Stu for an hour of brilliant comedy, music and variety with amazing guests, interactive games and big laughs.



Join Stu Goldsmith for a one-to-one coaching session about your comedy career or personal project. These aren’t joke-writing sessions, more of a sort of micro-ComCom mentoring experience, to identify how you might be getting in the way of your own creativity and offer some solutions!

“Stu has made me think about writing comedy in a way that I wouldn’t have considered otherwise. His mentorship allowed me to access the deep, vulnerable, and humorous truths that are actually more impactful than the surface stuff I was doing otherwise. Highly recommend.” Jasky Singh
