Joseph Gilgun • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #284
Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 284 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! The fabulous JOE GILGUN is this week’s guest, star of THIS IS ENGLAND, PREACHER and currently BRASSIC!
Indeed - this is the week, people. Pip’s been hyping it up for a while now, rightfully so, as Joe is an awesome guest who fits right in like hands to a pair of gloves. And boy howdy do Pip and Joe get into it all… From his appearances on the brilliant Two Shot Podcast, to his own dealing with bipolar (including the importance of having characters who deal with the condition but not as their only character asset), not being the condition you have, working with the powerful Shane Meadows and the many actors under his expansive wings, his bipolar purchase decisions (including parrots and many, many pairs of trainers), living in a derelict house in the woods, social media and its many pitfalls including reasons for him to not use it, all his acting work from Corrie to Brassic and all in between, the lush countryside of the Midlands, being a ‘tall poppy’ - the one who isn’t allowed to get above his station back in the days, learning words through context clues, learning the hard way with a strict teacher, the freedom of taking ideas to Sky, and dealing with memory problems. Yes it’s rammed. Yes you’ll enjoy it. GO IN!
