Comedy Is … A Miracle, Doctor

A treat afforded by the Paramount Comedy Channel, was the opportunity to watch some shows that weren’t otherwise on offer elsewhere. Some were curios, some were average, but occasionally some were absolutely fantastic.

On this episode of Comedy Is … I take a look at The Micallef P(r)ogram(me), and the career of Shaun Micallef, along the way trying to figure out why comedy has played such an important role in my life.

I will get around to putting up a proper podcast feed so you can listen to this on your chosen podcast app soon. In the meantime, if you like what you hear, please share it with your friends, thank you.
