George Basil Podcast Subscribe with iTunes

It’s the Magnet Theater Podcast’s ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY (!!!) and to celebrate, we’ve got Magnet alumnus George Basil on the show. George stopped by while he was in town for the theater’s 10th Anniversary and talked to host Louis Kornfeld about getting into improv, Michael Keaton, and the art of living. These two friends who met in the Magnet’s first Level 2 improv class fill this episode with artistic philosophies, discussing nonlinear skill progression, rallying against the monetization of art, and how that which inhibits us also enables us to be great. Plus, find out the artisan job George took when first moving to NYC and where that scar came from. This is a feel-good episode if there every was one and we can’t imagine a better way to celebrate our one year anniversary than with an old friend. Check it out!

Link: Woody Fu’s “People I Have Met Through Magnet” Album

It’s no secret that taking improv classes at The Magnet Theater is a great way to branch out, try something new and meet fun and interesting people.  Recently Woody Fu, a student and now the most recent addition to the Musical Improv Team, The Sound and the Fury, started to draw everyone he has met through taking classes and performing at The Magnet Theater.  The result is incredibly cool, check it out:

 

   

 

 

The whole album can be viewed by clicking on the title link above.  There are 100+ drawings and it’s been growing larger everyday.  Great job!  Woody also does comics at http://www.peroxidecomics.com.
