It’s been a few months since we went back to the Art of the Covenant archives, but for the Thanksgiving week I thought it’d be a good time to go back and reflect on some of the great conversations that helped give birth to this weekly podcast. In fact, one of the things I’m most thankful for about being a podcaster in this community is having a built in excuse to get to know people I only know tangentially better during a long form conversation. This was one of my first conversations with improviser Anna C Reilly and one of my favorites from the previous iteration of my show.
Being that this chat discusses the similarities between the three forms of improv and the love interests of Rory Gilmore and this week marks one year since their reunion run on Netflix’s Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life and this month marks two years since this episode first aired, I can think of no better time to return to Stars Hallow and the Sky Lounge above Cattivo for a great chat from the back catalog to see how far we’ve come.
“Arcade Comedy Theater's Anna C Reilly is one of the Pittsburgh comedy scene's best performers. We get into her unique origin story with ties to Green Bay clowns and Dayton area colleges. We have tons to talk on including cool guy head nods, being uncomfortable on stage and which of the men from Gilmore Girls reminds her the most of performing long form, short form and musical improv. ” - November 2, 2015
