Friends With Money #29: Comedian Daniel Muggleton on what's funny about money


Tracksuit wearing Sydney-based comedian Daniel Muggleton says, when it comes to investing, he's the drunk heckler yelling at the stockmarket.

Here he talks to Money managing editor Julia Newbould on the Friends with Money podcast about his best investment - an original vintage of Penfold's Grange 1951 made on his behalf by his dad and his worst investment decision - pursuing a career in the arts.

He also confesses to having to work hard during the pandemic to perform comedy online as he found the paperwork too hard.

  • Why he hates that the pandemic made rich people richer
