Improv Nerd, the well-known comedy podcast hosted by improv veteran Jimmy Carrane, is returning for a limited time, featuring an exciting new line-up of amazing celebrity interviews.
The new season runs from July 6-July 27. All shows take place on Sundays at 5 p.m. at Stage 773 in Chicago.
This season’s guests include George Wendt (“Cheers”); Mike Kosinski of Second City’s Mainstage; Punam Patel of Second City’s e.t.c., and veteran improviser and iO teacher Paul Grondy.
In each interview, which is recorded as a podcast, Jimmy talks with an improv icon about his or her creative process and personal life. Then laugh along as Jimmy performs a totally unscripted scene with each of his guests and learn how they created the scene in a revealing interview and question-and-answer session.
Since the live show and podcast began in September 2011, Jimmy has interviewed such guests as Jeff Garlin, Andy Richter, David Koechner, Rachel Dratch, Tim Meadows, Comedy Central’s Key & Peele, Scott Adsit and others. In December 2012, the podcast was picked up by FeralAudio.com, a Los Angeles-based podcast collective that hosts shows by comedians such as Matt Dwyer, Chelsea Peretti, Dan Harmon and more.
Whether you’re a casual comedy fan or a full-on improv geek, you’ll love this show!
