I'm so sorry for the extended hiatus everyone, but I hope to make it up to you with this incredibly awesome, extra long interview with Michael Gellman! A true luminary in the Chicago improvisation scene, Michael sat down with me while he was here in NYC to talk about his approach to creating theatre and story through improvisation. He also talks about the reactionary nature of starting an improv theatre, giving notes for Del Close, and how intuitive bartender Jimmy Johnson got him to his Second City audition.
Michael Gellman can be found on Facebook or at Second City
