260 Manila with Craig Campbell

12 months ago

Craig Campbell is a beautiful lunatic and a comedy legend.

He is from Calgary, Canada but has been living in London for the past 20 years and crushing it. I first met and worked with Craig 20 years ago when I first started going to London and have since performed with him all over the world.
Last month we toured in Asia together and this episode was recorded in Manila.
In Manila we rode Harley Davidson's and after the show went to a bar that had midget boxing. I told the owner of the club that in the rest of the world we are now calling them "little people" but he said that it was too expensive to change his neon sign. Fresh back from doing our show and watching "little people" boxing Craig and I sat down to record this episode. I have infinite respect for Craig as a comedian and as a human. He is a bad ass manly man but he is not a bully, he is kind and has an innate sense of justice which always shines through in his comedy.
I love this man very much and that is why it is my pleasure to present to you now the one and only Craig Campbell!
