Films To Be Buried With

LOOK OUT! It’s only Films To Be Buried With!

Join your host Brett Goldstein as he talks life, death, love and the universe with brilliant comic, writer and actor DANIEL RIGBY!

Dont forget award winning! A lovely and warm presentation from Daniel and Brett, as the two catch up about so much, including Daniel’s Laughing Horse comedy award, pre-comedy nerves and anxiety, the strange liberation of dying on-stage, therapy bloopers (and not from his side), mishaps while alone, the weirdness of horror, fighting with his family, and real life Karate Kid scenarios. A perfect catch up, or intro to Daniel and all the great work he does. With any luck, you will surely be able to sanction his buffoonery. Enjoy!
