The Midnight Citizen 222: “How To Improve Your Life Through Improv” (7/26/20)

Join Mike in the studio late on a Saturday night.

Show notes: Why does improvisational theatre get such a bad rap? Two improv-themed shows on Netflex: “Middleditch and Schwartz” and “Don’t Think Twice”; the history of improv and negative impressions; the time I embarrassed myself in an improv class with the Second City (it still makes me cringe to this day); lightning struck a tree outside my house this week; Music Break*; a toast to Regis Philbin, who passed away this week at 88; “Live with Regis and Kathy Lee” and “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?”; cool guys in 80’s films; Video Street Video Store**; hindsight is 2020, like the year.

*Music Break: “Necrofago” by Dr. Frankenstein“Evil Itch” by The Space Merchants. All music is played under a Creative Commons License (Attribution, noncommercial, no derivatives) and is available at the
