So here it is, the extended version of our chat with Mr Michael J Dolan. It was probably our longest interview yet and whilst an absolute pleasure to talk with MJD, it made the whole thing a bloody nightmare to edit. This is a 45 minute version of the interview which is packed full of good stuff.
Michael discusses his origins as a stand up and how he came to record his album Dress To Depress last year. He also covers being accused of misogyny, how he reacted and how it’s affected his comedy. My favourite bit was hearing his plans for his new show.
A man who clearly loves comedy and is constantly striving to be smarter and funnier with every joke. We hope you enjoy.
Funny Looking 10 will be with you very soon. It may be slightly delayed as Gav is currently in a post Thatcher week of mourning. Wait…I mean celebration. Seriously, I’ve never seen him so happy and it was a pleasure to break the good news to him.
If you enjoy this honest celebration of all we find funny then tell a friend. It really does take bloody ages to edit an interview so we’d appreciate your support.
Don’t forget for the Gifted & Talented there are Dolan related extension activities here.
How happy are we that we got the interview we wanted? Thank you Brian for calling in on a very special night for you – What a gent.
