441 - Sikisa

There’s drive, and then there’s Sikisa! Interrupting her holiday for this interview, we meet an amazing comic with a superhuman work ethic; working as an immigration lawyer, then filling her life with shows and part time work leaving her 4 hours a night to sleep.

We talk about self-care, how to manage multiple shows a day at the Edinburgh Fringe, why hosting a show is like throwing a party, and why she can still feel like a failure in the middle of an ascendant career…

Extras available exclusively to the Insiders Club include Sikisa on her experiences teaching at Soho Theatre, and her new wrestling podcast!

Go to www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders for ad-free episodes, extra content from every show that has it, and much more - including exclusive Insiders Q&As plus the incredible “self-help for comedians” special with Amanda Donnet.
