BBC to launch new podcast featuring comedian interviews

Helen Lederer is to host a new BBC podcast series in which comedians are interviewed
Knock Knock, which launches later in March, sees comedians talking about their careers and influences
Lederer says: "I´m fascinated in how new comedians work their material"

A new BBC podcast presented by comic Helen Lederer will "seek to get inside the minds of comedians from across England".

Knock Knock will see the actor, writer and comedian talk to comedians about their roots, lives, careers and influences.

The show is being made by BBC English Regions, who produce the BBC´s local and regional content, and will launch later this month with an episode released every two weeks.

The BBC says: "The episodes take listeners on a journey all over England looking into the comedy psyche of some of the funniest people around."
