I can come off of the script if I want and not panic.
Has it been tough to stay out of that conflict between stand-up and improv comedians? I’ve never been in any conflicts between improv [comics] and stand-ups.
But again, like you say, because of the groups I’m in, I’m pretty lucky; everyone I work with is the ten or 15 improvisers in the world that anyone would know from TV, which is a fairly small, lucky group.
It’s fun to play with new people and see where they’re coming from.
I mean, improv is kind of a big, for lack of a better word, fraternity, and there’s just a difference of what people like to play, whether it’s long-form or short-form and all of that.
But in stand-up, I definitely have an idea of what I’m going to do.
