Spirited Discussions

The Improv is a comedy club, but we love variety as much as the next guy. On March 15, we're getting our fourth visit from medium Cindy Kaza. If you're curious what her show might be like -- or what exactly a medium does -- we've already had a few interviews with Cindy on our podcast from her earlier visits. The first one is a "get to know you" chat, the second one is about her views of the spirit world, and the third is about how mediums continue their on-the-job training. Whether you're a skeptic or a believer, it makes for some interesting listening. Check 'em out!

Episode 61: Comedy Hack Day

Comedy Hack Day matches comedians with coders. Together, they figure out funny ideas for apps and websites. Then they build 'em, quickly. And then they present 'em. It's pretty damn cool.

This year, the grand finale for Comedy Hack Day DC is at the Improv on November 13. We're talking to Ross Nover, who helps organize the event, and Kasha Patel, who was on the winning team for 2015. They explain how the event started -- and what it takes to be a champion. Have a listen, then come party at the presentations on 11/13.
