Sexism, Kate Smurthwaite, wolf whistles, Sarah Chew, Emily Hill, babes and FemiNazis. Are terms of endearment from men sexist? Are wolf whistles the equivalent of war crimes? Have I got tuberculosis? Kate Copstick gets her tits out in front of Jordan. Janey Godley and The Only Way Is Glasgow. Why a doctor thought it was a bad idea to treat Copstick. Porn films and the improvised children’s TV show No 73.

Political correctness and malicious intent. The Gazza PC hoo-hah and why we have to be upset about something. The English injustice system. Comedy MCs who become PC Heteronormatives. The changed acceptability of Harry Hill’s transgender joke. Plus Mama Biashara’s supplies to Syria. Is it impossible to have sensible comedians? And why Copstick reckons there is a lot of hate heading my way.

Copstick’s quote of the week: “A heterosexual couple. What the fuck is wrong with that? I am not heterosexual and I am not part of a couple, but what is wrong with that?”

The “proper sexism” of the mid-1980s and earlier in Northern Working Men’s Clubs remembered by comedy critic Kate Copstick while John Fleming fiddles with his nuts. Copstick reminiscences about her days as a pantomime dame, touring the northern clubs and being pelted with sweets by 2,000 children. There is talk of BBC TV currently ‘desecrating' old sitcoms but not Peter Tinniswood’s “It Takes a Worried Man”. Plus women behind the throne in British TV sitcoms. Sexual social segregation. Sheena Easton’s ex-husband. The powerful women of old-time Music Hall and Vaudeville. And the lost honesty of old-style comedy audiences.

Copstick’s quote of the week: “There is nothing wrong with a single-sex club.”

Unoriginal BBC TV sitcoms crucified by critic Kate Copstick. Why performers are entirely right to call her a bastard. John Fleming’s criminal background. The English and Scottish injustice systems. Copstick ‘outs' herself as a Corbynista and talks of her secret lust for her English teacher. PLUS Why Ariane Sherine wants Copstick as her mother and John Fleming as her father. And the “bundle of chaos” that is comic Neal Portenza.

Copstick’s quotes of the week:

“Why don’t they just put a sign on the BBC saying “Our commissioning execs don’t believe anyone can come up with a good idea or write anything original ever again, so we are just re-hashing?”
+
“I am very excited to discover that I am podcasting with a convicted criminal. You have risen in my estimation no end.”

Comedians’ careers: is it worth going to the Edinburgh Fringe? Which excellent Edinburgh venue’s press office was criticised? Richard Gadd’s shocking reaction to not winning an increasingly prestigious Malcolm Hardee Comedy Award.

Plus Broadway Baby’s one-star review of a “quite creepy” comedian’s show. Tim Renkow’s brilliant online sitcom. Lorraine Bracco is not a town. Lynn Ruth Miller’s version of a soft shoe shuffle. And will comedians crowdfund to see critic Kate Copstick self-harm herself with a kebab skewer next year?

Copstick’s quote of the week: “One of the worst things you can do is be a small show in a big venue.”

Comedy Awards at the Edinburgh Fringe. Before the 2016 Edinburgh Comedy Awards were announced, amid a noisy crowd in Assembly, a tired and emotional Kate Copstick and John Fleming babble and discuss comedy at the Fringe and how the Malcolm Hardee Comedy Awards winners were decided…

Plus the brilliance of Richard Gadd and Phil Ellis, the million-pound baby, Becky Fury, Phil Jarvis, Peter Buckley Hill and the sexual allure of the Pillsbury Doughboy…

And how Copstick, initially with nausea and diarrhoea, was recognised as “the anti-Christ of the Fringe”.

Comedy gossip with critic Kate Copstick and blogger John Fleming in a very noisy Southside Social pub in Edinburgh. Why Copstick no longer wants to hear about Fringe comedy acts from PRs next year. Comic Candy Gigi’s horrendous experience with an awards judge. Why the comedy section of the Fringe Programme has become “toxic”. How Paul Currie’s comedy show moved from “slightly scary” to “much more fun” but Copstick now wants to “smack him in the face”. Why Copstick hates the word “lover”. Why she was second choice to co-host The Grouchy Club and its original conception as a ‘real people’ TV chat show.

Copstick’s quote of the week on Fringe comedy PR: “It’s ugly and it’s wanky and it’s just horrible… I haven’t been to see one single great show this year because a PR suggested it or even because a PR alerted me to it”

Kate Copstick rants about people jumping the queue at Richard Gadd’s show and how greedy Edinburgh University are financially raping the Fringe. Plus Copstick’s X-ray shows a shadow on her lung: could it be her last Fringe?
Plus how Tim Minchin’s UK career started. How “wonderful” Karen Koren of the Gilded Balloon venue has helped acts.
Michael Brunström’s brilliance. Candy Gigi’s changes. Ariane Sherine labelled a pasty-faced Jewish Princess. The origins of The Grouchy Club. And news of the Increasingly Prestigious Malcolm Hardee Comedy Awards.

Copstick’s quotes of the week:
Lewis Schaffer - “He is not right in the head”
Edinburgh University - “They’re absolute arseholes”

Sex at the Edinburgh Fringe. The most arrogant little prick of a comedian whose show critic Kate Copstick has ever sat through. The joys of Sweet venues. A woman being hit over the head by a wheelbarrow. Alfie Brown’s brilliance. Copstick nominates Twonkey for the Malcolm Hardee Comedy Award and raves about Michael Brunstrom’s surreal show and his sexually attractive legs. The perils of drinking too much Red Bull. The King of Clit Comedy. The Grouchy Club’s previews of 2017 Fringe shows. The perils of ‘papering rooms’. Marcel Lucont’s calendar. Malcolm Hardee: The Musical. And Copstick vividly shares one of her most memorable sex acts.

Comedy, teabagging, fisting, rimming, felching and threesomes. Kate Copstick announces her Edinburgh Fringe podcast without me and remembers a great fetish club. Copstick and Jim Jeffries’ sexual experiences with Doktor CocaColaMcDonalds. Ariane Sherine’s offensive songs. An alternative to the wastefulness of Comic Relief. The Underbelly venue boys in rubberwear. The best knock-knock joke. Previews of 2017 (yes 2017) Edinburgh Fringe shows. Islamic jokes. Eleanor Conway’s sex and cocaine. Comic David Mills reclaims the word faggot . Plus the Mama Biashara charity’s desperate need for a new accountant. The best Edinburgh Fringe poster, the new First Minute Awards and my hot date with Lynn Ruth Miller.

Quote of the week from Kate Copstick: “I’m not saying a life is defined by threesomes, foursomes and sticking Class A drugs up your bum, but…”
