The Adam Buxton Podcast

The Adam Buxton Podcast

British comedian Adam Buxton talks with interesting people. The rambly conversations are sometimes funny, sometimes more serious with funny bits. Adam makes the jingles and records the intros and outros for most episodes while walking with his dog friend Rosie in the East Anglian countryside where he lives with his wife and three children.

The Adam Buxton Podcast - #150 - LOUIS THEROUX

Adam talks with journalist, documentary presenter, podcaster and school friend, Louis Theroux.

This is an edited version of a conversation that took place in front of a live audience at London's Royal Festival Hall on 25th September, 2019.

I was there to interview Louis about his book, Gotta Get Theroux This, and as well as serious subjects like eating disorders and the abuses perpetrated by Michael Jackson, we covered lighter topics like the strange rumours about Louis circulated by the late sinister PR guru Max Clifford.

We also covered Theroux memes, Theroux tattoos, the secrets of Theroux's interviewing technique, and my concerns with how Louis described the teenage me in his book.

Thanks also to the Royal Festival Hall events team for letting me use this edited version of the recording here.
