Emma Blackery is one of the UK’s most popular Youtubers, both as a singer-songwriter and a comedian.
She tells us what it’s like to be one of the new breed of comedy performers, and how the relationship with her audience is different to anything that’s come before.
Taylor Glenn is a friend of the show (See DigiHuman Mischief, she’s great there too), an award winning comedian, writer and former psychotherapist, so there was really no one better to explain how the tragic and the dark can be transformed into humour.
Taylor tells us about her Edinburgh Fringe show, ‘A Billion Days of Parenthood’, an unflinching exploration into her own post natal depression, and how it went from Twitter to Stage.
She talks to us about memes, and the group dynamic of a shared sense of humour that flourishes online.
4 Chan Mods
Jay and our British Guest are both moderators on 4Chan - a simple image-based bulletin board where anyone can post comments and share images that is also known as the internet’s bogeyman.
They explain the sense of humour of 4Chan, how much the reputation for the twisted is actually warranted, and why we all need a bit of dark humour from time to time.
