Episode 38 Improv 101 Upright Citizens Brigade / Emmanuel Pineda / Susie 8-30-16

August 30, 2016 @ 11:59 am

If you're wondering what I've been up to lately, this is the episode for you.  I enrolled myself into improv 101 at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre NY.  The Upright Citizens Brigade was a sketch show in the 90s founded by Matt Besser, Amy Poehler, Ian Roberts and Matt Walsh.  As an improv team they gained popularity, began teaching improv, eventually opened up their own theatre and school in NYC, and now own two training centers and 4 theaters; two theaters and a training center in LA and two theaters and a training center in NY.  I've since finished 101 and am onto 201, so I figured I'd give you a taste of what that was like for me.  I never went to college, and never travelled for schooling, so it was a bit of a new experience for me, and being 35, I'm getting into "Old dog new tricks" territory.  I've been pushing myself out of my comfort zone as a theme lately, so you're going to hear me approach someone on the train, Susie, who turns out to be someone pursuing a career in "show biz". And, to top it all off, I sit down with classmate, Emmanuel Pineda, to talk radio, sketch, podcasts, and of course, our improv 101 class, our classmates, and the effect it's had on us as people, and aspiring funny people.
