This week on Magic Lessons, Elizabeth Gilbert enlists the comedian Michael Ian Black to help coach Keith, an improv comedy performer in Baltimore. A few years ago Keith fell hard for improv. He took every improv class in Baltimore and but there wasn’t a regular space to perform. So he formed a troupe and found a venue, building a vibrant improv community called the Charm City Comedy Project. But, somewhere along the way, he neglected his own dreams of creating a one-man show.
Special Guest: Michael Ian Black is an actor, comedian, and host of the podcast “How To Be Amazing.” On TV you can find him on The Jim Gaffigan Show and Another Period. He’s also the author of the memoir Navel Gazing: True Tales of Bodies, Mostly Mine, (But Also My Mom’s Which I Know Sounds Weird.) Find out more about him at MichaelIanBlack.org
