Chloe Radcliffe

Season 2, Episode 3,  May 24, 2020, 02:30 PM

My guess this week is Chloe Radcliffe - a writer for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, a twice national speech champion, a former corporate speechwriter for Target and a standup from Minnesota. Speaking transatlantically one Friday morning in April, we discussed why The Tonight Show is uniquely tailored to socially-distanced writing, how to characterise Minnesotan comedy compared to that of New York and Chicago, the impact both Judd Apatow and Eddie Izzard have both had on the narrative nature of comedy, what forensicating is, how speech and debate relates to stand up, the comfort of being alone on a stage, an impromptu deep dive into rhetorical analysis on the concept of rhetoric itself, and much more.
