jakegunst #TBT to my first exposure to improv on board the Norwegian Pearl. It was in the summer of 2009, on an Alaskan cruise. I saw a boat company ("BoatCo," colloquially) from The Second City perform several nights per week, and teach a couple of improv workshops with the passengers. I found the sketch shows very entertaining, and the team's improvisation inspiring. If I remember correctly, it was after one of the shows; I had a drink with Josh Callahan, who told me about his experience with Second City Hollywood, and encouraged me to move to Chicago if I wanted to pursue comedy.

In 2014, one of my teachers at The Second City Conservatory happens to be the accomplished improviser and actor Ryan Archibald— one of the members of the company I saw performing in 2009. If you want to know how I ended up living in Chicago, writing and performing comedy, taking classes and interning at Second City and iO Chicago, and all else, it started with watching this troupe perform back in 2009.

  •   jakegunst @blertax you need sleep, because laws and human rights and shit. All I need is to party all night because jokes. That was last year. This year I need something else to blow them outta the water. Or at least pick them up from the water after they've capsized. 2mon
