Louis Pasteur, the famous French scientist, once said ‘Chance favours the prepared mind’, when describing how he was able to see opportunities that others had not. The same is true for comedians, as you will hear from this enlightening interview with Marty Wilson.
Serendipitously thrust into comedy via a comedy leaflet, and encouraged to launch a UK comedy career through a chance encounter on a flight with musician Jimmy Barnes, Marty’s mind was prepared for these chances and so he took them.
In this School of Hard Knock Knocks podcast interview, we discuss Marty’s life as a stand-up, his transition into keynote speaking, and how he combines comedy with topics on resilience, workplace motivation, and general mental health and well-being.
