I have Restless Leg Syndrome. It used to wreak havoc on my life until I took a sleep study and figured shit out. I was prescribed Mirapex and...
Kill them first.
Best. Advice. Ever.
What I value about the improv community is that it’s a community. It’s certainly competitive. Everybody is ambitious and wants to get ahead and succeed, but the nature of the scene is predicated on not singular exceptionalism but ensemble. I feel that ethos is what makes the improv world a very collaborative world.
It’s no mistake that I get a lot more jobs now that my friends are in positions to run their own shows. Everybody in our world is always looking out for each other. There are certainly those people for whom it’s all about them, but those are few and far between in the improv world. It’s more about teams, whether it’s a sketch group or an improv team, everything is based on the ensemble. That began then and continues now.
This Saturday’s Lady Jam at Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, East Village is open to all genders! Why? Because October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and Breast Cancer doesn’t give a fuck what your gender is.

Perform in a jam set with DETROIT
Perform in a scene with BRENDA SCOTT JONES (Brandon’s drunk relative)
Perform in a scene as CATS with Chelsea Clarke!

LOTS MORE TO BE ANNOUNCED!
THIS IS JUST THE TIP (Dick Joke in a Breast Post).
All money raised will go to Barbells for Boobs, a non-profit organization that provides funding to pay for breast cancer detection services as a last resort for thousands of people who don’t qualify for assistance elsewhere, Male and Female!
Let’s all Jam together for a good cause!
A community that has fun together, saves tits together.
Fundraising against breast cancer* AND an improv jam? Why wouldn’t you?
I’m going to be in New York, teaching an intensive class for the UCB, August 18 to August 23. I’d like to do some coaching while I’m there in the evening or afternoon. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to book me.
EVERYONE!!! THis is an AMAZING opportunity! Take it! Please!!! And then tell me all about it so I can live vicariously… Then I’ll tell you all about my trip to Portugal which happens to be the same week. Give and take.
