Phil Faiss interviewed

improv instructor/performer from Las Vegas sits down for a LENGTHY interview. Its difficult to stop talking when you have two people who love improv as much as Phil and I.

Phil talks about his short films, his experiences studying improv at the Groundlings as well as Second City, and finally his experiences performing here in Las Vegas.

Phil is one of my favorites and has the BEST laugh!

Tune in to listen to his laugh, and his pleading to get a date.

Build those Characters!!!!

On the August 24 episode of the Adam Carolla podcast ( guest Chris Parnell talks about his improv training at the Groundlings, as well as his experience auditioning and performing for SNL.
If you want to get straight to his portion of the show-he appears at appx 57 minutes into the show.

One of the things I found interesting is when SNL auditions actors they ask to see 3 characters and 3 impressions.
So it is never too early to start creating and fine-tuning those strong characters, if you want to be ready for a show like SNL to come calling.
