In the second installment of a two-part series on improv, Jen chats about the indie improv community with guests Casey Feigh (Crashbar) and Nick Mandernach (Room 101). They cover everything from the genesis of each show to how a line-up is put together to social anxiety about hosting. They also recall the dirty thirty and discover a mutual admiration for weird ball games, but don’t worry, nothing about either of those things is blue.
For the first part of the series, check out Episode 8: Long form improv, with Neil Campbell.
