Fresh to Lloyd night but not to improv, Ashley England talks to Shawtane Bowen about learning improv at in Chicago, comparing and contrasting it to the UCB’s game-oriented approach. She loves ‘hippy-dippy’ exercises like sonic explorations, but is terrified of monoscenes. She learned how to “not give a f***” by doing improv with Second City on a cruise ship for four months. This week’s episode is in partnership with Bronx Brewery, the official house beer of the UCB Comedy Podcast Network.
