The latest member of Nick Helm and Nathaniel Metcalfe’s Fan Club is Australian stand-up comedian, actor, author, rapper, and radio presenter Matt Okine.
Talking to presenters Nick Helm and Nathaniel Metcalfe about his experiences in breakfast radio, the Edinburgh Fringe nominated comedian said: “We hosted this breakfast show… I mean waking up early was sort of the worst… especially coming from a stand-up background. And the feedback, I’ve never got an immediate feedback like that, like, written out feedback. So, any time anything happened people would just be like, ‘Shut up! Play more music! You’re shit!’ And I remember a guy who texted us at 5:59 am one morning just being like, I was just getting ready for the show to start and this text came in and said, ‘Shut up Okine! You’re not funny go home!’ And I was like, ‘Our show doesn’t even start till 6!’ It was a minute early! You know what I mean?”.
During the show, the trio also spoke about Matt’s Edinburgh Fringe nomination and his daughter despising his latest single. You can listen to the full chat tomorrow from 1 PM on FUBAR Radio.
