SusannaDooleyBoney posted a topic in improv4humans with Matt BesserHi Brett, Hi other engineers, Hi Earwolf, Hi Matt! I know this might not be the appropriate place for this topic, but it FEELS like it is the right place. I made a custom personal, job application VIDEO to apply to work in the Production at UCB LA's Digital Comedy Department, and I want to share it with y'all! https://youtu.be/Q3DqTCquVGI Who makes a video job application?? ME! A cool lady who wants to Produce, Design and Edit, or be a WORK STUDY INTERN for the UCB! And who posts their silly job video on a chat fourm? ME! A cool lady who knows that applying for anything online is like throwing your resume down a hole, and the only way to get anybody to look in that hole is to lead them to it.... SO LOOK IN MY HOLE, MATT BESSER!! And the rest of y'all chat forum users: Thanks for reading this! Please put in a good word for me at the UCB. I KNOW one of y'all mofos works at the UCB or takes classes there, so I would be much obliged if y'all could share my video with who ever. And LA listeners, please holler at me if YOU ever need a music video or a short produced or edited! I like to make things. Holler and thank you ! https://youtu.be/Q3DqTCquVGI
I don't know if this has already been mentioned, or if there's a better place for it, but I just saw this article on Uproxx and thought fans of Besser and the UCB as a whole might want to give it a read: http://uproxx.com/movies/2015/02/ucb-oral-history/
I really like the episodes where Besser brings in people outside the UCB family. Todd Glass, recently Paul F. Tompkins It makes for interesting improv to have someone from a different comedy background, and it also follows a more traditional model of podcasting (to bring a guest into the realm of host and parameters of the show). I hope they continue to do shows like this, it really highlights the improvisors' adaptability with hilarious outcomes. I told Besser this in person when I met him in 2012 while touring with CBB. I suggested he should have Greg Proops on, because I thought it would be interesting to hear two old school comedy stoners to talk about improv from different perspectives, and share in the common thread that is podcast comedy. I know it's unlikely since Besser already unleashed his screed against the two types of improv confusion... but what do you think about having guests outside the improv community? would you listen to episodes that were more akin to a pre-existing UCB show like Snowpants?
