Former political point man for Prime Minister John Major and current award-winning political commentator, Lord Danny Finkelstein joins The Humourology Podcast to discuss political parties, punchlines, and how humour influences the House of Commons, the prime minister, and the public.
Lord Finkelstein knows that comedy and charisma go hand in hand. Using humour to win people over in the House of Commons is an essential trait for any politician. Having worked closely with William Hague, Theresa May and George Osborne, Finkelstein shares how the best speakers in parliament were able to be their authentic selves while sharing their sense of humour.
“I do think some of humour is not taking yourself or all situations too seriously.”
Join us this week as Lord Finkelstein shares stories from his time setting up speeches for some of the country’s most influential and comedy-minded conservatives this week on The Humourology Podcast.
