In comedy timing is everything. But when you’re a radio host, you manage time like a fine art. So says Sydney based comedian Simon Kennedy, a former radio host and 20 year veteran of stand-up comedy.

In this School of Hard Knock Knocks podcast episode, host Steve Davis talks to comedian Simon Kennedy about MCing comedy, ‘cancel culture’, the green-room hypocrisy, empathy, and sadly his mum’s passing in the September 11 attacks. Simon also opens up about his own comedy career, his love of competition in comedy, and adapting to Covid-19 with pantless Zoom comedy. Yes, for Simon constraint is the mother of invention.
