For many performers, their biggest fears is that people will find the creative writing they produced when they were younger. Early poetry, short stories, song lyrics, scripts and more shouldn't stay hidden in shoe boxes in our parents' house or in password protected folders on our laptops. It’s time we monetised that shame and gave those pieces the public outing our 15 year old selves would’ve wanted. Each week a guest brings something they wrote in their adolescence to be discussed and co-a ...

Christmas is a magical time of year, which is why our Christmas episode is with certified childhood member of the Bradford magic circle, Nick Mohammed, here to talk us through some of the tricks of his youth. These include starting every word with R, dazzling at 50th birthday parties and a choice gag about a cheese grater. We also hear the outline …
 
When Solange wrote A Seat At The Table, Catherine Bohart related to it, because she was picturing the grown-ups table. Precocious x 1 billion, bard-chat and petition based revenge is how Catherine spent her youth when she wasn’t busy dominating debate club. It’s all very impressive, but the early work is baffling, cryptic madness, frankly. A lot be…
 
Katy Wix had a very weird red nose day one year as a child and this is your chance to hear about it. Honestly, it's wild. She didn't just swing by the EW Zoom for that though, she also brought poems in a plethora of styles, from the jaunty to the dark to the sexually naive. Plus some choice criticism for Rhys's poetry which it's hard to believe has…
 
Fizzing creative genius Sara Pascoe proves it was sort of always like this, as she pops into Early Work mansions to discuss a childhood of Doing Things™, like setting up a bullying line and making everyone sing in assembly or remixing Oliver Twist with her sister. Work-wise we get into some very surprising parody songs, a hard-drive of dread-induci…
 
Hi Early Work fans!Radio X are releasing Season 2 of a podcast we think you’ll enjoy. That’s A First! is hosted by comedians Maisie Adam and Tom Lucy and in each episode they’re joined by a guest who reveals some interesting firsts from their life… and then gets ripped to shreds. In series 1 we heard about the first time Romesh Ranganathan soiled h…
 
Riskiest comic in the biz Jordan Brookes swings by to chat being an obnoxious prankster at school, embracing his stagecoach family roots, and tales passed down from generation to generation to find their way onto this podcast. Spooky ghost stories (and boy are they spooky), some poems (and boy are there some fo them) and a funny joke (ok). Plus the…
 
The only person evert to cast Rhys off the back of an audition, David Baddiel zooms into Early Work with the hefty anecdote collection you’d expect. School revues that turn you cool and inspire the writing process for one of the most famous songs in British history, plagiarising famous poets and getting away with it, misinterpreting flirtatious gui…
 
Some players dedicate their entire careers to just one club. John Terry, Ledley King, Paolo Maldini. But some Playaz (see 'Don't Hate The Playaz' [ITV2]) spread themselves across 8, 9, even 10 clubs - that goes with the Playa territory. This playa, Amelia Dimoldenberg, was in every club you can imagine existing, and if you can't imagine it existing…
 
What could a self-proclaimed uncreative boarding school attendee like Ivo Graham have to offer the Early Work archive? Well, very on brand tales of finally putting himself out there creatively and getting roundly humiliated, of course. Ivo reads some short stories about monsters killing his friends, a book that's dangerously thrilling, a storm whic…
 
Performance levels go up a notch as accidental graduate of RADA and soon to be Hollywood superstar, O.T. Fagbenle, Skypes into Early Work from, you guessed it, Tanzania. From Frank Sinatra style songs for his girlfriend to a one-man-show based on a real exchange with a homeless lady and a barbershop in San Francisco (with professionally trained acc…
 
Early Work is back for a new series, and the work is even EARLIER than before. We kick off with our first American guest, the inimitable comedian and poet Catherine Cohen, who kindly Skyped into the podcast from a porn set at 9am. One of the most equipped Early Work guests of all time as she brings a hench 60 page word document full of angsty teena…

The final episode of series one! Emily Dean brings letters from a spaceman to his 'leave him on read' wife, a fake memoir with no chance of a sequel, tales of performing grudge plays, learning the hard facts too young and perhaps the best named character yet. Plus she has the confidence to guess what Rhys was like at school. Can she out guess the m…
 
It’s transatlantic guest time! Amy Hoggart is live from New York to tell us all about her frankly ridiculous childhood. Pretending to win public speaking contests, dressing up as a big egg, demanding to play men, accidentally exposing herself, and for the second episode in a row, watching her own school burn down. That’s all before we get into the …
 
Project man Danny Wallace pops into the Early Work Zoom to discuss his childhood pranks showing off his knowledge of the legal system, his Gaelic poetry illustrations and finally some billboard-worthy deep and thought-provoking poems. All the hot topics covered: Race, where you come from. All of them. Not to mention the stark, brutalist poetry he w…
 
An actual poet on Early Work for the first time! Charly Cox Skypes in for another lockdown special, becoming the second guest to bring fan fiction. This time it's about George Sampson, his sisters phone number, his home address, and then the fiction starts. Charly and Rhys open up about their shared need for internet friends and forum admin status …
 
Inventor of the fake cockney accent singer-songwriter genre Isy Suttie Zooms into Early Work with a smorgasbord of youthful angst, unrequited love and radio plays about hat shops. The first guest to play live songs on the show, one of which was only meant to be heard by Tim and Dan, so this really is an exclusive. Not to mention egotistical band na…
 
Glenn Moore! Once newsreader and maybe someday if live events return, back to being a comedian. Glenn has always had great jokes comics have been jealous of, but just wait until Tarantino, James Cameron, Spielberg, Scorsese and, yeah, why not, Richard Curtis, hear his adolescent story telling. Extremely visual, extraordinarily cinematic (in that a …
 
Lockdown. Doc Brown. The only guest to have an Early Work section on his wikipedia. How do you go from samosa dealing in your youth to playing a drug dealer in the Inbetweeners? From beatboxing in school talent shows to Jump Off champion and features on David Brent tracks? The extraordinary career of Ben Bailey Smith is no accident. He put in the w…
 
World's most interesting man, anecdote champion of the universe and low-hairlined Australian-raised Hong Kongese British citizen Dan Schreiber bowls into the Early Work Zoom sessions. A quarantine special. A lockdown exclusive. Story upon story of his parents hugely successful hairdressing and karaoke careers, Dan's own teenage bands, cult like sch…
 
Non-driving son-of-a-chemistry-teacher Mark Watson is the most precocious guest so far. He wrote novels age 5 and had his own newspaper by 7, frequently publishing adverts for things you'd never anticipate a child being interested in (anyone need roofing?). The typical Watson modesty we've come to adore has been there since day one as even is his o…
 
Rhys's Norwegian mother Kerry BOSHliman steps into Early Work quarantine to give us a selection of her life before she developed her no-nonsense nature. A peek into the nonsense days. Drama schools called EGYPT where she made safe sex videos. Long letters to Philip Seymour Hoffman in the pre-twitter era. Rhys clearly pretending to know who Hanif Ku…
 
British comedy acting royalty Mathew Horne remembers nothing from his childhood... except his first funny character, his love of human geography, a choreographed dance for the football lads and earning his dad's approval immediately. Thankfully Rhys is on hand to analyse his early work's deeper meanings further than the "good lad" feedback from his…
 
Shankings, arson, asthma. A mixed bag at school for Jayde Adams. So it’s no wonder she turned to writing. First of all, a novel longer than The Hobbit that she just up and deleted one day, failing to predict the inception of Early Work podcast where it would’ve been finally put to use. Then undeleted poetry about flu jabs, pets she’s allergic to on…
 
Joel’s got weird knees. He’s also got weird habits, like inventing a new kind of walking, getting absolutely punk’d by the Wombles, making Stephen Mulhern uncomfortable and writing plays with his mum. Enlisting the acting talents of Rhys to help bring it to life, Joel brings to Early Work mansions his prize-winning murder mystery set it an old peop…
 
Precocious Pleb Tom Rosenthal has been making #content for decades. Fans of his adolescent youtube channel will be familiar with Pimp My Toaster, long time followers will be well aware of his scouse accent in public speaking contests. Here, he ups the ante with an Early Work first: some Actual Recordings™ of things. Those things just so happen to b…

Whether you're stuck in a well, your heads in an oven or you've just got your eyes closed, everything's dark in Nick's world, and what an honour it is to delve into. Plus, Rhys reads a poem he wrote on halloween about a girl he'd had an argument with. Boy o…
 
'School comedian' Tom Lucy is so precocious he's already started wearing gym clothes before his midlife crisis. He started stand-up when he was just 16 and labelled his childhood band "defenders of rock" age 10. This sort of confidence is exactly what you'd expect from someone who considers themselves 100% American. Tom's baffling, propaganda-laden…
 
Undisputed comedy champion John Kearns brings his blend of wistful, considered genius to the Early Work theatre - and you better believe Blair's in the audience. War scripts, a novella set in a zoo, a thousand titles for books that'll never exist; John always believed in buying the billboard before you've created the product. Plus, Rhys reads a poe…
 
Fresh from every panel show, comedian Maisie Adam cross-country jogs into the Early Work playground to prove that for her, it's not just about art, it's about business. It always has been. She's been charging for love poems since she way 10 years old and even with inflation the value for money is exceptional. To level the playing field, Rhys reads …
 
Big shot "female actor" and the podcast's second Taskmaster loser, Lolly Adefope, slides into the Early Work ball-pool with some red hot teenage fan fiction, before showing some unwarranted support for Rhys's poetic plagiarism. It's a confident, unapologetic performance, but what else would expect from the coolest, smartest, funniest girl in school…
 
Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner and Taskmaster not-winner Rose Matafeo is the first to step up to the podium and deliver her incredibly versatile early work, before being quite forgiving of Rhys's tragic offering. Things start edgy and end up spooky, so consider this a trigger warning. Follow Rose on Twitter @rose_matafeo Follow Early Work on Twitter…
