Nathaniel Metcalfe is one of my favourite comedians. He's got a genuinely original and distinctive comedic voice and he is also the perfect guest for this podcast as he has a habit of being distracted by seemingly trivial things and then investigates them to a depth that few of us would. His debut show 'Enthusiast' is full of wonderfully niche observations told in an accessible and hilarious way, and can beseen in it's entirety on vimeo here. Nat can currently be heard onJames Acaster's...
