Interview 1 – Hung Le and Rod Quantock
Stella brings in the maiden interview of the ‘Funny about books’ podcast live at the Newport Comedy Room with special guests and legendary comics – Rod Quantock and Hung Le.
Rod proudly confesses to having never written for his stand up routines, but Hung admits to aiming for a cracking punch line every three sentences!
In a conversation taking more twists and turns than a federal politician watering with a cheap garden hose, the group discusses whether comics are made or born, the delights of the classics and how much fun it is to ‘peel the tape off’ racial and political stereotypes.
“It really helps if you look funny…” reflects Hung about physical comedy, to which Rod quips: “You lucky bastard!”
