Jay Richardson’s Article:
Today, one of my favourite reviewers, Scotland’s Jay Richardson, published a piece in WOW 24/7 about my UK Tour entitled “Lewis Schaffer: ‘No-one’s had as many bad shows as me – and I’m still standing.”
He wrote “… [Lewis Schaffer’s] self-destructive instinct would mean that you couldn’t take your eyes off him if he ever appeared on the slick, sanitised Live At The Apollo, presumably after every other UK comic had perished in a nuclear apocalypse.” Read more.
Grouchy Club Podcast and Blog:
This week, I also spoke with John Fleming on his Grouchy Club podcast. His partner, Kate Copstick, couldn’t make it as she realized it was just me.
Read the blog post – “Comic Lewis Schaffer on his time under a psychiatrist in Marilyn Monroe’s clinic.” I talk about how I was diagnosed as ‘Depressed’ at a New York psychiatric hospital and what I did about it.
Then, if you dare, listen to the entire podcast – 27 minutes of me. I sound all real and sensitive and depressed. Listen here on iTunes or on Podomatic.
BBC Radio 4 Stuff (in case you missed it):
Here is the actual video of me on BBC Radio 4 talking to John Humphys and Justin Webb. Watch this before they take it down.

Come see me Sunday at 6PM. Lewis Schaffer, International Man of Misery.
Nunhead American Radio:
There was no new show on April 6th as it was a Bank Holiday.
Last week’s show featured my friend, the funny Dominic Frisby, comedian and financial writer, and the brilliant Liz Zitzow, my accountant and international tax expert. She knows about the latest USA-UK tax issues. Dominic has two hardcover books out and is a libertarian which is completely radical in the UK. Listen here on MixCloud. Our best show, ever!
The Relatives, our band, has a new video up “Lewis, You Crossed the Line” (2 mins long). I now have many many videos uploaded on the Lewis Schaffer YouTube Channel. Click.
