Remember Me?

Magnet visits with people we haven't seen in awhile.

1. Where are you sheltering?

I decided early on in quarantine to stay home in the West Village of New York and ride the pandemic out. Still wondering how wise that decision was, but when the day comes, I will be 15 minutes away from the front door of the Magnet Theater. YouTube will be allowed a well-earned rest. As we inch slowly towards a normal life, I dream of walking to 29th street to play LIVE with the most brilliant, talented, funny and kind comedians on the planet.

2. How are you staying sane?

I try to focus on attainable goals and Sanity is not one of them. Clean, Fed and Smiling is ambitious enough. A bowl of hot buttered popcorn and the Armando Diaz Experience on Twitch on a Saturday night does the trick.

3. What do you miss most?

People, People, People. Casual encounters like 'Hey, I'm getting a coffee, do you want one?'. I'm grateful for the digital substitutes but I am LIVING for the day I can say 'Uhm excuse me, there's a LINE?' to a complete stranger.

4. What don't you miss?

The madness of an overburdened city

5. What do you want to say to the other members of the Magnet community?

Even if I don't know you, never met you, have never even seen you, I can't wait for us all to be together. After the Apocalypse, there will be Improv.
