At the end of the 2012 comedy festival, Thom Tuck invited fellow comedians Matthew Crosby, James Acaster and Nick Helm down to the Pleasance Courtyard for a coffee and a discussion about masculinity in comedy. Unfortunately Nick couldn't make it to the interview at the same time as everyone else; and so a cunning plan was hatched. Thom would simply interview Nick separately and then edit in his bits with the rest of the tapes. It didn't work. But rather than admit defeat, we've decided to...
