With this episode being No. 42 in our show's history, the number worn by Jackie Robinson when he broke the color barrier in Major League Baseball, and today's date being the midway point during Black History Month, I'm thrilled to be able to share my recent conversation with two African-American teammates of mine from The People's Highbrow, Ryan Canty and Mary Parker.
As the Pittsburgh improv community continues to become more diverse, I look to use this show to highlight the different voices of the member's of our community. While this episode scratches the surface of race, gender and sexuality and the role each plays both in life and in scene work.
Catch our guests all over Pittsburgh performing improv. They perform regularly on Arcade Comedy Theater's Bonus Stage (Sunday 7p). So look for show dates for Mary's Game Shark or Ryan's Laughing Vigilantes next time you are in the Cultural District. This weekend, I'm emceeing at the Unplanned Comedy Warehouse for the CONTEST 4 IMPROV 4 HUMANS, 8 PM both Friday and Saturday.
