405 - Olaf Falafel

The comic creation of comedian and illustrator Derek Chickpeas, “Olaf Falafel” is an absolute combine-harvester of inspirationally daft ideas; hoovering them up and blasting them out across multiple creative outputs.

We talk about “Olaf Falafel’s Art Club”, “Old MacDonald Heard A Parp”, “One Giant Leek” and plenty of other projects including “The Pearl With The Girl Earring” and a load of other stuff he unsurprisingly doesn’t have time to properly leverage…. We also discuss his penchant for over-delivering; his uniquely brilliant Edinburgh Fringe flyer designs; how to prioritise a million projects; as well as how he manages to stay one of the happiest creatives who’ve ever graced this podcast.

Over half an hour of extras available exclusively to members of the Insiders Club include an exploration of his copycat-inspiring success on Vine (and the relief he felt at its collapse); further investigation of his effervescent comedy mind; and why he probably won’t illustrate your kids’ book idea…
