I had the great honour of being the Monologist at Arcade Comedy Theater’s April Hootenanny! Each month, one person is chosen (this time it was me!) to tell stories about their life (based on audience suggestions) and then some of the best improvisers in Pittsburgh do scenes based on those stories. After a few scenes, the monologist hops back up to tell more stories and the magic continues.
I had so much fun telling stories I had never told publicly that have never made it in to my stand up. Arcade Comedy Theater is where I started taking improv classes in May of 2016. I was on house improv teams at the Arcade for 2 years before I left to focus more on stand up. It was such a special gift to be asked by the Arcade to be the monologist. I’ve watched this show a million times and was so thrilled to get to tell some stories and share the stage with some of my faves. Thanks for having me, Arcade!
