susan and christina

In our continuing effort to share great ideas about improvisation, the Q & A series proudly posts this live conversation with Susan Messing and Christina Gausas.  Megan Gray was our host, and the audience at Magnet Theater provided the questions.  This is NSFW because Susan uses the F word a lot.  So put on your headphones.  Unless you’re alone.  Then crank it.

Magnet Theater’s Ed Herbstman on the IRC Podcast

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.

Armando Diaz Improv Resource Center Podcast Interview

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!
