Welcome to the Inner Orbit Interview Series, where I bother LGBT+ and female-identifying performers about their lives and experiences as comedians. This week’s subject is a firecracker on stage and off: Jamie Zeske!
In Improv Level 5, we focus on building ourselves as better performers; we reflect on what we admire about other performers, where we struggle, how we’re growing, and what makes us strong improvisers. We’re nurtured towards the best version of ourselves: strong, healthy, rooted, playful. We bring this learning to Level 6, where we begin learning how to build a better show. The implication here is important: to have a strong show and a strong team, you need to have strong players.
Welcome to the Inner Orbit Interview Series, where I bother LGBT+ and female-identifying performers about their lives and experiences as comedians. This week’s subject is a stunning, curly-haired wonder woman named Lisa Michalsky.
Our latest intern of the week is Kaitlin Sands! I can't think of a better person to be crowned Intern of the Week for the first week of Term 2. As a veteran intern, Kaitlin really shines when it comes to mentoring new additions to our intern family. She is a kind, delightful human, and her genuine love for this community is contagious. Get to know more about Kaitlin by reading this interview we had on a rooftop patio while eating a bunch of really expensive lobsters!
In the fall of 2004 I was in the seventh grade and the television network ABC premiered a show called “LOST”. The elevator pitch for the first season is basically “a plane crashes on a mysterious island with hostile inhabitants and the passengers strive to survive, and there’s a hatch.” Anyone who has watched the show knows, as the seasons progress, the concept of the show strays a bit from this as complexities unravel and relationships form.
