Episode 28 - Talking about Comedy with Luke from Luke’s English Podcast

I talk to Luke from Luke’s English Podcast – one of the longest-running ESL podcasts – about one of our favourite topics: comedy.

We discuss our favourite British sitcoms and comedians.

We also look at how you can improve your communication skills by “keeping things light” and even being weird and surreal.

And you also get to hear at least three pirate jokes (and two cheese jokes, too).
