Here it is.  Nick Kanellis – actor, improviser, teacher, story pirate and motion capture professional.  Louis interviews one if the kindest and funniest improvisers ever to get killed by Peter McNerney onstage every week for years. They talk about his critically loved show Trike (w/ Peter McNerney), the perils of self-judgment, the joys of being a great sidekick and learning not to cry because it makes others uncomfortable.  They go deep into the fallacy that we are ever in control of our own thoughts and feelings, and the healthy repression of primal fear. These two guys are smart, kind, and clearly good friends who enjoy each other.  We hope you enjoy as well.
