Cardiff Business School’s Dr Dimitrinka Stoyanova Russell will share findings from her report with Dr Nick Butler, No Funny Business: precarious work and emotional labour in stand-up comedy. The lecturer in Human Resources Management interviewed 64 full-time UK-based stand-up comedians to explore how freelance creative labourers navigate employment.

We’ll also have a set from Cardiff stand-up Lorna Prichard, who runs Howl Comedy at The Tramshed, on what it is like to be a freelance comedian in the city.

Creative Cardiff Director Sara Pepper will then facilitate a panel with local freelancers on topics including wellbeing, digital and finance.
