I checked out the live Walking The Room podcast at the Improv. It was an exercise in awesome silliness and literally walking the room. Much of the crowd had come for Greg's 8 pm show and then stayed for the podcast. So they might have been a bit tired and, as Dave called it, the audience was made up of fans and the friends they dragged along.. and a lot of the friends were inexplicably not enjoying it. Which the guys seized on and played up admirably. But I had a good time and am looking forward to checking them out again at the Podcast Festival this weekend.
But the good gossip I picked up on was about this week's Comedy Juice. Dave Chappelle and Craig Robinson dropped in and kept the show going right up until 2 am. Those are the nights I love at The Improv. Craig used to drop in with Jeff Ross on a regular basis a few years back and that's made me fall in love with that place. It's nice to know that even with the terrible mural and weird clubby new bar, it's still the old Improv and going to see Juice still gives you a good chance of catching Tosh, Dane Cook, Chappelle, Craig Robinson or Jeff Ross.
