Great Theater! Great Comedy!
Finally a podcast from this place. I've been watching shows there for years and they are smart, funny, original and create some of the best improv I've ever seen. If that seems hyperbolic, it's probably because I perform there and some of those shows are mine.
I’ll be frank, I’m a student at the Magnet Theater and I frequent the shows, but I suppose if you weren’t at least somewhat personally invested in the Magnet or improv comedy you probably wouldn’t be inclined to tune in.
In any case, I love this podcast because a lot of the people Louis interviews (including Louis himself), are performers I admire from afar… and it’s been really comforting to hear their thought processes and ideas about improv, as I am truly just a beginner myself and am overwhelmed by how great everyone seems to be in comparison to myself; it’s fun to find out everyone’s own journey and realize that they’ve all thought the same things as me at one point. In addition it’s just fun to hear people’s backgrounds, everyone’s got some story to tell.
Looking forward to future episodes!
Insightful improv podcast
A great place to watch smart improv in NYC, and a thoughtful and incisive podcast to match.
