My good friend and frequent cast-mate Dan Meisinger and I were the guests on the latest Poor Choices Podcast.
Poor Choices is a weekly discussion with some of the best improvisers and comedians in Chicago. Hosted by Mark Colomb and Matt Owens, both performers themselves around town, the show is a cousin to Mark Maron’s WTF Podcast. Most shows give you plenty of inside baseball: influential training, discussion of comedic perspectives and bits, lots and lots of bits.
My episode is no different. Tune in to hear us discuss:
- Our respective improv up bringing
- The influence of Cook County Social Club training and their emphasis on reaction and relationship
- Our ridiculous names
- Dirty jokes about our wives
- The Davenports
- Manu Chao
- Plenty of other nonesense
I’ve often said I have a voice for print, and I still cringe listening to myself. That said, you might enjoy listening to me more than I enjoy listening to me.
I certainly had a blast recording the one-take session. Mark and Matt are great hosts, and I’d recommend their entire catalog to anyone wanting a crash course in Chicago improv.
