Lewis Hobba does Drive Radio on TripleJ
My guest is Lewis Hobba, whom some of you may know as one part of Veronica and Lewis - of the Triple J drivetime show. Lewis is a friend of mine, and the thing I enjoy most about him is his ability to balance his wit and cynicism with being absolute delight.In Lewis’ hands, humour is a sport where offers are returned with increasing abstraction. He is so quick, so innately funny - I love talking to him as much about philosophies as I do trivialities. He is another candidate for someone I know who’s doing what many would consider to be a 'dream job’, so I wanted to find out what got him there and, now that he’s there, the process that allows him to continue mastering his skill in turning out a two-and-half-hour comedy radio show every day. Not surprisingly there is a brilliant mind at work behind the lightness of his humour and although he wouldn’t recommend his own process to anyone, there is a lot to be learned from my conversation with Lewis Hobba.
