#44: Susan Messing
Guess who's in town! Chicago-based improv luminary Susan Messing stopped by while in NYC to talk to us about teaching improv, being malleable, and giving TED Talks. Lots of great questions are addressed in this episode, such as: Wheres the line between taking care of yourself and being selfish? Whats Susans take on the current state of long-form? And do you want to have sex right, or have sex? Louis and Susan discuss how to play with difficult improvisers, sorting out your voice amidst the variety of improv philosophies present today, and the importance of revisiting everything youve put out there so that you dont leave things by the wayside. Plus, hear Louis "butt theory" and Susan's thoughts on the early days of the Harold under Del Close and his role as an experimenter and teacher. Huzzah!
