AJ Holmes

Season 1, Episode 1,   Aug 21, 2019, 01:24 PM

My first guest is AJ Holmes - star of The Book of Mormon (playing the iconic role of Elder Cunningham in the West End, Broadway and Australian productions), a writer for South Park, co-creator of Starkid musicals such as A Very Potter Musical, and currently appearing in his Edinburgh Fringe debut 'Yeah, But Not Right Now'.

We talk in his kitchen over a cup of Guayusa tea about how he went from preaching The Book of Mormon to writing on South Park, his early introduction to British comedy, how storytelling has been a thread through everything he's done, and why Company is - wrongly - not his favourite Sondheim musical.
