428 - James Adomian (Live @ SXSW)

Ingenious stand-up, actor and impressionist James Adomian’s impact is truly global, with his voice appearing on a hundred cartoons and a thousand podcasts - making him "a famous person no-one knows”.

Delving deep into his character performance and how he chooses who to impersonate, James lets us in on his love for Aristophanes and his processes of tackling intelligent and academic subjects, in voices ranging from US Presidents to Slovenian philosophers, all whilst maintaining mainstream appeal. We also discuss audience reactions to James being gay and how not fitting into the gay ‘template’ has helped shape his stand-up sets, and get POD-JACKED BY EDDIE PEPITONE NO LESS.


Catch up with James:
