Histcompod Episode 14 – Angela Barnes chooses post-it notes

In episode 14 of A History of Comedy in Several Objects the brilliantly funny comedian Angela Barnes visits the British Stand-Up Comedy Archive (you can too!) to look at a whole swathe of material relating to her comic hero, Linda Smith.

We looked at lots of material but Angela selected as her object of the episode some post-it notes which Linda had used as set-list style prompts.
