Ep 64 - Bewilderment By Committee
Every once in a while (This is the first of those times) we produce a podcast that only barely moves the lousy needle. This week we met, interviewed, and groped SF Improv Festival organizers, Sam Shaw and Jamie Wright.
When you have the kind of talent that we had visit the bomb shelter, you don't want to bombard them with too many questions too soon so we chose to go with a neglect and evade type strategy. It worked unequivocally. SK was adroitly able to make all topics about himself and Pete handled his role as grand stander with absolute aplomb.
We started with emails with topics such as the Titans of Mavericks, SNL, break dancing, and the Real Roxanne. This lead to the inference that SK's history contained, either, break dancing or a role in the Fat Boys filmography. After a quick plug by Pete for Pete we resumed with the ignoring of, what was clearly, the gold standard in guests and proceeded to plug the upcoming SF history days at the Mint and black history expert John Templeton. These, of course, were just a platform for SK to announce the definiative number of licks to the center of a tootsie pop and to challenge a dead man to a knife fight.
Oh, and we talked about the history of Improv in San Francisco and the ground breaking comedy troupe The Committee. What a night!
