In this episode Charlie interviews Luke from Luke's English Podcast and as Luke is not only an ESL teacher but also a comedian, Charlie asked him to describe the journey a comedian takes to become a successful comic in the UK. Luke highlights an important difference between British comedy and British humour. We also squeeze a juicy story out of him during his rock 'n' roll days and he even shares a moment when he was dying on his arse on stage as a comedian.
Luke has a delightful way with his words so get ready to learn a lot of intermediate to advanced vocabulary and expressions. I created 100+ flashcards for this episode in The Academy.

Charlie is very good at showing people when the new words and phrases can be used. It helps me to really apply the phrases in the future. The rise and fall of his voice also makes the content more interesting as I can feel the different emotions from him.

Teacher, Podcast Host, YouTuber
Charlie is the host and creator of The British English Podcast & Academy. He has also been an active YouTube English Teacher since 2016 but after seeing how many of his students wanted a more structured, carefully designed way to study he decided to create The British English Podcast Academy.
It focuses on British culture, informal expressions, accent and history that is all unique to the UK.
Charlie has spent 6000+ hours teaching intermediate-advanced students since 2014 privately on Skype and has seen a lot of different styles of learning and while he believes there will never be a single CORRECT way to improve your English there are a large number of methods that people use that do waste people's time and prevent them from improving quickly.
So Charlie decided to create The Academy because he believes he knows a VERY effective way to improve your English quickly and enjoyably.
