Andrew Doyle is a stand up comedian and satirist who's written for Jonathan Pie, created the parody twitter character Titania McGrath, writes for Spiked Online and runs a "free-thinking" comedy night in London called Comedy Unleashed. But, unlike others who criticise social justice and the "woke movement", Andrew comes at these issues from a Leftist perspective.
Here we chat about why Andrew is so concerned about "wokeness" and how he sees it affecting society, comedy and free speech. We cover the state of Brexit (and why he thinks voting to Remain isn't a left-wing position), fascism and his attitude towards how his work is interpreted.
