Celebrating a Decade of Dark Humor: Comedians Kiri Pritchard-McLean and Rachel Fairburn’s Fascination with True Crime and Comedy Exposed in 10-Year Podcast

MANCHESTER, UK – Comedians Kiri Pritchard-McLean and Rachel Fairburn, both fascinated by the strange and macabre, have been working together for a decade. Their childhood interests in true crime and horror eventually led them to collaborate on their podcast, “All Killa No Filla.”

Living just over 100 miles apart on the island of Anglesey and in Manchester, the two women had never crossed paths until they began working in the city’s comedy clubs. They eventually met and began their successful podcast, which has now reached its 104th episode.

Despite the unconventional pairing of comedy and true crime, their podcast has garnered a dedicated following. It features in-depth discussions about notorious serial killers like Jack the Ripper and Charles Manson, accompanied by a disclaimer that denounces hero worship and romanticism of these criminals.

While their interest in true crime may seem morbid to some, both Pritchard-McLean and Fairburn are adamant about not glorifying or romanticizing the actions of serial killers. They aim to provide a nuanced and respectful approach to discussing these topics.

In an industry where they both have experienced and witnessed sexism and misogyny, the success of their podcast is a testament to their talent and hard work. Pritchard-McLean credits other successful women in the industry for paving the way for more women to take up space in comedy.

In March, the duo will celebrate the 10th anniversary of their podcast with a live UK tour, reflecting on how far they’ve come and the impact they’ve had in an industry that has historically marginalized women. Their journey and dedication to their craft demonstrate their resilience and determination to succeed in a male-dominated industry.
