67 - Susan Messing & Emily Fightmaster in "Methods & Meth Heads" (Recorded live at The Annoyance in Chicago)

Play
Read more

Susan Messing (The Annoyance, Messing with a Friend) and Emily Fightmaster (Second City, The Annoyance) join Josh and Jake for a night at the Annoyance Theater. They start off with a discussion about the methods taught at the UCB Theater and The Annoyance theaters. Josh gets called a bitch with skinny thighs. Then Emily tells a true story about a time they took "good speed" in Europe and had a big time comedown in Barcelona. Susan talks about being with her dad as passed away, and a supernatural experience she had during that time. These true stories inspire improvised scenes about a new brand of Tab soda by Emily, a newscast gone horribly wrong, a dying man who will never get an oyster and more!

Today's episode is with Chicago improviser and instructor, the incredible Susan Messing!
​​Susan is renowned for her work at iO, Second City, and the Annoyance!
Jason and Susan get right into the nitty gritty of many things improv. The pair talk about Susan's approach to improv, the "rules of improv," how she started teaching improv and that Peter Grosz and Seth Meyers were in the first class she taught, being a founding member of the Annoyance Theater. Also, Susan creates one of our favorite moments of "There It Is" by answering a phone call as a little girl. It's pretty funny!

My guests are master improv teachers Susan Messing and Joe Bill. Susan, Joe and I worked together at iO, The Annoyance Theatre, The Second City, and improv festivals across the world. They're former ADD guests, but this time we gathered for a powerful reason: The past few months have seen women improvisers express their frustration and anger at the prevailing culture of sexual harassment in improv schools and theaters across the US. We met to discuss the culture of women's sexual harassment in our improv community. Our intention was to have an honest and heartfelt discussion, to voice our culpability, and to look at our past actions and present opportunities to facilitate the creation of a healthy, truthful inspiring environment in the classroom, on the stage and in the world in which we so joyfully create. We engaged in this discussion with all the humanness that can be expected during this extraordinary evolutionary time.
