Welcome back to The Comedy Cast; today you’ll be hearing from American author W.T. Fallon.

W.T. Fallon is the author behind one of 2016’s best works of political satire, Fail to the Chief, a book about a USA Presidential race based on the concept of reality TV.

Under another pseudonym, V.R. Craft, she has also written a science fiction book called Stupid Humans.

We stated off the interview by talking about pseudonyms and why the are an important literary device for authors; the importance of being able to create a new identity while writing in a different genre. We speak to about the importance of using critique groups when writing and taking onboard constructive criticism.

We speak about W.T.’s work of satire Fail to the Chief, inp particular how she enjoying putting her Presidential hopefuls through menial jobs and lie detector tests.

We spoke then about where political satire is these days and its importance, especially now that President Trump has somehow come to power and certainly seems to have it in for the media.

That led us on to the modern phenomenon of fake news and how there’s such a thin line between fake news and satire.

We had a chat then about where W.T. is from, Arkansas and how it’s not pronounced how it’s spelt and why, for some reason, the state drink is cow’s milk.

We chat about W.T.’s literary and comedic influences growing up and how they’ve inspired her to write, that and getting sacked from a retail job which she describes as hellish.

We speak too about W.T.’s other book under the V.R. Craft pseudonym, Stupid Humans a science fiction book about Humans fighting People.

Finally then, we had a natter about W.T.’s love of comedy and how she desires to write jokes for performers and maybe even try stand-up comedy in the future.

The Comedy Cast Interview with Erich McElroy

Erich McElroy

Welcome back to The Comedy Cast; today you’re going to be hearing from Erich McElroy, an American stand-up comedian who is making a name for himself in the UK.

Erich McElroy dabbled in stand-up and sketch comedy before moving to the UK 16 years ago and when he arrived fancied his chances on the up-swinging UK stand-up comedy scene. Fast forward a few years and Erich is a much in-demand political satirist, his special subject is or course American politics but he’s not afraid of confrontation; he was the only comedian at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2016 who opposed Scottish Independence (a brave man in my honest opinion).

We had a great chat about the state of American politics, of course Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton made an appearance too and then we had a natter about comedy; why he got into it; his influence and heroes and of course at the end our True False Challenge.
