My journey of improv redemption continues apace. My Level 3 class is about to conclude, and like all classes at the PIT, we conclude with a show (actually, two). I’d be mighty appreciative if one or two of you could be there with me to share it.

My teacher for this level, Scott Eckert, deserves special mention. I must admit that I’ve had a man-crush on him from class one. Not only is he a spectacular performer (as all the PIT teachers have been) but he is wonderfully enthusiastic about teaching, and shares a lot of my philosophy. I’ve always said, “The things that make good theater make good improv.” It’s delightfully satisfying to have a teacher who not only understands that, but is passionate about it. He gave me another pithy insight that I’ll file away into my box of performance truisms: “Comedy is the failure of drama.”

Please come and see us so we don’t perform to a room full of empty, soulless, unlaughing chairs.
