This week we are rebroadcasting our conversation from May 2013 with Greg Gillotti:

"Great is an experienced improvisor and comedian who is very deeply plugged into the scene in town. He is on several improv teams, produces and features in "The Death Show" (in which the players improvise a wake for a member of the audience), he teaches classes and has played at the Steel City Improv, The Cabaret at Theater Square, the brand new Arcade Comedy Theater downtown, jams, libraries, outside of diners... Kind of all over the place!

Greg is also a incredibly bright and insightful guy, who loves to analyze comedy. We have a great discussion about how he got started in all this, and then his thoughts on comedy. He is all about the more the merrier and fostering comedy and art. We also get into the nuances and differences in the stand up and improv worlds, as they continue to merge and cross-over.

It is an exciting time for comedy, and Greg talks shop like few others can!
