Through the recent Australian Podcast Awards, I met up with Morry Morgan from the School Of Hard Knock Knocks podcast and comedy school. He had an upcoming episode with Adelaide-based comedian, Ross Voss, and since then, I’ve made his show one of the regulars in my podcast listening. Each episode, Morry has an interesting, down-to-earth chat with a comedian about life in comedy. I’m hooked, so I thought I’d introduce him to you.
Morry, love the name of the podcast. What inspired that?
You started the school back in 2016 after doing a comedy course yourself. If you did a comedy course and ended up doing the business side, are you suggesting the safest way to succeed in comedy is to be a back room guy?
How hungry are we to learn comedy – surely it’s got to be one of the scariest things to contemplate doing?
You’ve got a comedy school running in Adelaide from June 4-8, what is involved?

Stephen Yarwood’s first appearance on The Adelaide Show Podcast (episode 38 in May 2014) gave rise to a piece of the most trifling journalism we’ve ever seen, and set off some heated invective from commentators like Peter Goers, that all helped raise the profile of our humble podcast. Later, when Stephen returned for episode 80, he’d just handed the mayoral “chains” to Martin Haese and petty coverage of his daily actions seemed to have ceased. Today, Stephen is still in the news but with references like “internationally regarded urban futurist” through his consultancy, city2050.
Do you remember the Kurtis Eichler story, Adelaide Lord Mayor Stephen Yarwood likens tensions between cyclists and motorists to South African apartheid? It was in the Tiser on May 20, 2014.
Is your media life much tamer these days?

|We opened the vault to go back 100 weeks to a night at the now closed, Bar 9 at Parkside, where coffee maestro, Ian Callahan, gave us an in depth chat about all things espresso. What has still stuck with us to this day, is Ian’s lesson’s for maintaining your coffee machine at home.|
