In this episode I spoke to Donatas Kveselys, a fellow engineer who’s going to be the next big thing in stand up comedy. He’s Lithuanian, but he’s currently living in Sweden, which is where we met when I was couchsurfing with him and his flatmate in Gothenburg. Since I was a guest on their sustainability radio show, One and a Half Vegan, I invited Donatas to bring a little humour into my podcast.
We did a deep dive into stand up comedy: material creation process, what’s funny in different countries and cultures, advice for new stand up comics, Donatas’s plans for the future, Lithuania and of course, corona. We also discussed what’s (in)appropriate to make fun of, so if you’re uncomfortable with dark humour like suicide jokes, please consider this a content warning.
Check out Donatas’s YouTube channel and Instagram and show him some support! You can also drop by at erraticengineeress.blog and share your thoughts on this episode.
