This week’s podcast guest is a comedian Jamie Macdonald, a half-Finnish, Scottish-Canadian, mostly socialist, kinky, gay, transgender guy whose stand-up comedy basically covers all of those topics as well as the occasional pun. He’s active in Finland’s alternative comedy scene, co-running Comedy Idiot in English, Feminist Comedy Night and Feminist Comedy Academy, the burlesque/drag/comedy show Punch Up!, and political comedy show You Can’t Be Serious. His second solo show, Gender Euphoria, is touring throughout 2018.

In the episode Trent and Jamie talk about Jamie’s career in the alternative comedy scene in Finland and what goes into running multiple different productions in Helsinki such as Comedy Idiot and Feminist Comedy Night.
