This week we catch up with Welsh-Iraqi comedian, actor, writer and all-round supercreative Nadia Kamil who is now living and working in LA. She's known for her double act with Luke Roberts, 'The Behemoth', a string of hit Edinburgh shows, and 'The Alternative Comedy Memorial Society'. In 2014, Nadia played the petulant flight attendant in Starship Hack Circus, a live Hack Circus event in which we sent the audience into space to investigate an alien signal... and left them there.

Check out Nadia's website and twitter for a sense of the many arenas in which she has come to excel.

We discuss international differences in the comedy scene, tactics for auditioning, whether women are ever recognised as polymaths, and more.
