Australian comedian Richard Stubbs started his stand-up comedy career in 1983. A year later he began his long running radio presenter career, that saw him broadcast at 3XY, TripleM, 101.1 TT FM (now KIIS FM), 774 ABC, and most recently 3AW. In between, Richard also appeared on and hosted Hey Hey It’s Saturday and performed sold-out shows at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
And then, in 2015 he decided to take his own advice and leave radio and reignite his passion for stand-up comedy.
In this School of Hard Knock Knocks podcast episode, host Morry Morgan leaves the confines of the studio and meets comedian Richard Stubbs in a bustling St. Kilda cafe to talk about life after radio, Richard’s hiatus from stand-up, being witness to the metaphorical birth of Australia’s comedy scene, and his motto of saying ‘yes’ to everything.
