This episode of Got Your Back podcast was recorded live at ColdTowne Theater during our first ever Comedy Nerd-Out.
We invited three great minds from the Austin improv community to participate in the show, and they were kind enough to prepare to speak at length on a topic of their choosing related to improv, comedy, performing, or anything else they might feel passionately about.The speeches given were:
- "You Suck Forever: Thoughts on Improv Nihilism" by Bryan Lubu Roberts- "Finding, Feeding, and Chasing Inspiration" by Roy Janik- and "Who Arted?" by John Ratliff
Personally, I found each of the speeches to be uniquely inspiring in their own wonderful way. Bryan was fiercely honest, funny, and profound. Roy offered a new way of thinking about the physical manifestation of inspiration that was novel and exciting. Then Ratliff finished by making me proud to think of improv as an artform and myself as an artist...I really can't thank the speakers enough for creating the content for this e
