The Penguin Podcast: John Finnemore

The comedian joins Richard E. Grant to talk about his award-winning shows Cabin Pressure, Double Acts and John Finnemore’s Souvenir Programme


Renowned for his wordplay, John admits that writing doesn’t always come easily and confesses that he has a “heart-breaking” ability to procrastinate (often with tinfoil).

John brings along a number of objects that have influenced his career, including his father’s airline hat and his bicycle, and observes how Benedict Cumberbatch single-handedly changed the demographic of Radio 4.
