From Kevin Mullaney’s IRC Podcast site…
“I interviewed Nate Starkey of the People’s Improv Theater, Porter Mason of the UCB Theatre and Ed Herbstman of the Magnet Theater. We talked about Oscar moments in improv, breaking our bad habits, character baseball, giving enough notes in class and being in the rainbow.”
Tonight, some of the funniest women in New York City combine their forces for an improv comedy event at the Magnet Theater. Megan Gray will be the host and 13 lady improvisers might just kiss… if you’re lucky. At the very least you will fall out of your chair laughing. Tonight at 10PM, make your reservations now.

Magnet Theater founder Armando Diaz was recently interviewed by Kevin Mullaney for the Improv Resource Center podcast. In the interview Armando discusses the lessons he has learned by opening his own improv theater, how he has evolved as a teacher, how he helps students connect with their scene partners, scene initiations and more! If you are an improv comedy nerd this is definitely a great interview to listen to!
