Simon Clayton has been a stand up comic since the summer of 1995. On stage he talks about what he is male, fat, mixed race, married, balding and anything else that currently makes him laugh. Although not necessarily in that order. He performs all around the UK and is a regular visitor to Ireland. He first came to Ireland in 1992 to teach Improv to the likes of Joe Rooney, Ardal O'Hanlon and Kevin Glidea. He's also married to comedian and Seven2Ten favourite, Mary Bourke.

We talk to him about comedians using writers, young men with spiky haircuts "noticing things" and about the Dublin preoccupation with the North/South divide.

Length: 54s

Christian talks to Michael Downey in Edinburgh as he performs his Fringe show "Standing Up Again" at the Gilded Balloon Teviot (7.45pm).

Michael Downey worked within the accountancy profession but the fact he had a personality got him thrown out. He wrote some really hilarious material and was given writing credit on the BBC's Stand-Up Show. Consequentially someone suggested that Michael attempt stand up comedy. He got to the BBC and the So You Think You're Funny? finals alongside Alan Carr and John Bishop. Following this he became a full time stand-up but three months into his new occupation he was involved in a major car crash. Now he's back! (These days he takes the bus!)
