Paul Scheer - Improv

We break our format for a second time to discuss improv with Paul Scheer! One of the original students and performers of the UCB Theatre, Paul gets into the nitty gritty of improv. We get very inside and very nerdy quickly, and then stay there. What drew him to it? What defined the style of his longtime improv group Respecto Montalbon, and its successors, the shows MySpace and Facebook. What's the "right" way to break rules (answer: commit to the insanity)? What kind of improv can Paul not stand? Why is the Facebook show good for winning over audiences that are new to improv? Why is the Harold good for students but maybe not good for shows?
