Chatting about the *really* fun side of comedy...
This morning, I had the chance to chat to Fleur Ostojak on BBC Radio Oxford about how the cost-of-living crisis impacts comedians.
Comedy can be a hugely expensive business, with travel costs in particular often being prohibitively expensive for comedians who want to get out of their locality and road test their material.
Every August, with the Edinburgh Fringe, we talk about how there is a significant financial barrier for performers, and at the moment, it is particularly true. Many exciting, important, diverse voices aren't being heard because they simply can't afford the rents and costs involved with Edinburgh in August.
