Our first stand-up comedian guest, Patrick Susmilch, talks with us about the differences between stand-up and improv, and the drive to perform that is the root of both. He discusses the importance of being honest, having the confidence to be engaging, even if the audience isn’t laughing, and ultimately doing comedy for yourself. Then, in the long-running segment, Pat’s Corner, he asks Philip and Matt questions about improv, including how much pre-planning is acceptable, how to deal with being pimped into situations you’re uncomfortable with, and why some comedians go so blue.
Then, we find out what a MILFO is.
