Roobla Podcast EP2: Jack Carroll

Standup comedian, actor and a proper Yorkshire lad!

Hello everybody, what’s up? You’re listening to the Roobla Podcast with me, Tom Salmon! The show that dives into music, film and games and everything else in between.

My guest on this week’s episode is Jack Carroll, standup comedian, writer and actor haling from West Yorkshire, England. He was the breakout star of Britain’s Got Talent’s seventh season finishing as first runner-up in the final. He’s performed sellout shows with Jason Manford, slayed audiences at Live At The Apollo and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and he’s won the Pride of Britain Award for “Teenager of Courage”.

We jumped into Jack’s starring role in British film comedy Eaten By Lions released in cinemas across the UK on the 29th March, his experience on being the youngest ever standup comedian on Britain’s Got Talent and being blocked by Stan Collymore.

  • Hey Sam! I can't attach a feature picture to this post, is it something to do with my permission access on the new system? Best, Tom
  • Hey Sam, it's the new system, I'm just trying it out for my latest podcast episode with Greg Lucey and I'm trying to attach a picture - it uploads the picture and then says I don't have permission to attach it :(
  • Hi Tom, I'll look into this today. I think I already know what the issue is. It's because the media being uploaded is not associating itself to a post ID. Thank you for being my test dummy. At least this creation dialogue is working!!!
  • Hey Sam, I've tried again just now still the same issues I'm afraid :( I'd also look at the text editor I'm not sure if the texted/front is properly formatting at the moment (there's big gapes in the spacing, front size). If you want to jump around inside my draft and see what's what please do! I think I am going to use the legacy editor to upload today, but we can work  on testing and refining the new editor together :) Best, Tom
