Rachael and John are hanging out in the corner of the 2nd floor of the brand-new Arcade Comedy Theater watching the door fly open and witnessing impromptu skits, random singing and overall excitement over the completion of the new building. The Arcade is such a great place for stand-up comedy, workshops and was even celebrated by Kevin McMahon of the Cultural Trust and Jeremy Waldrup of the PDP. That is the level of Arcade Theater coolness! What was on the blog?: Some Jagoff stole a wallet inside of a local magistrate’s office and used the cash from it to pay his own fine! Who does that? See blog post.
Kevin McMahon, President and CEO of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust. When will he take his first improv class? Can we get him to sing? He came to the premiere of the new building before overseeing all things cultural for the day!
Some members of the awesome improv group, Player One, crack us up. What does the new building mean to them? And what would be their peep-show film title? The three guys and one gal combo talk about how improv exercises break the ice at any time, the importance of workshops and how both help a person come into their own. Their smiles and jumping from excitement are contagious!
Kristy and Jethro (Jeff) Nolen are two of the founders of the Arcade Theater, who host the hilarious Dinner with the Nolen’s each month. They beam with pride about how their improv concept grew and even how they met—expect some spot-on yinzer talk while they chat up meeting in Chicago.
Abby Fudor and Mike Rubino are the other half of the Arcade Comedy Theater founding team. These two were bursting at the seams to discuss the importance of completing the improv practice phrase ‘Yes and’… Plus they rejoice at the end of construction!
Zack Keim is a fantastic young Pittsburgh musician on Get Hip Records. He has been sneaking into open stages since he was 16 (He’s 20 now!) What’s his peep show title? Hear his off the cuff Ya Jagoff song too!
