Chris Norton Walker is highly regarded on the comedy circuit and has been described by critics as ‘nearly famous’ – he is an absolute expert at constructing punchy one liners and just generally a stand up guy.
We speak in detail about engineering jokes with Chris even doing a live demonstration of the Memory Palace Technique on me.

Jovan Lugave and Philip Luswata are both excellent actors with huge hearts which is absolutely evident in the vision behind the Playwrights’ Playhouse. These episodes absolutely standalone as amazing conversations but it’s intriguing to listen to Philip’s episode immediately after Jovan’s. His influence on Jovan’s career felt very intertwined with the inspiration behind the Playwrights’ Playhouse.
