In this episode Gearoid meets ventriloquist Nina Conti the morning after her sold-out show for the Galway Comedy Carnival. She is mid-way through her largest tour to date. She chats about her start in ventriloquism, her puppet Monk and why she never wants to be an actress. Nina is a prolific comedian and documentary maker. She received a BAFTA nomination for her film “Her Master’s Voice” in which she took the puppets of her deceased mentor Ken Campbell to Vent Haven in Kentucky. Nina has won a British Comedy Award, stormed Live at the Apollo, Russell Howard’s Good News, Sunday Night at the Palladium – all without even moving her lips.
