with Ryan Williams and Taylor Moore
episode 64: Sixteen Dollars for a Dead Catholic
Bonjour et bienvenue! Fan favorites Langan Kingsley and Aaron Jackson are back on the show this week and they deliver 55 minutes of pure, ecstatic joy as usual. Come for the RIVER RAPS, stay for the long-con bus ride to Claire’s. Then stay even longer because you’re an adult now and your dad isn’t in charge of you anymore so you can do whatever you want because you’re almost 21 and you’re a grownup and maybe next year you won’t even come home for Thanksgiving so everybody better stop treating you like a baby because you’re not a baby, you’re a grown woman.

it’s that time
We’re doing a project where we ask people: what’s your UCB? Last week we talked to Langan Kingsley about What I Did For Love, performing on the weekend vs. performing on Harold Night, and generational changes.
LW: How’d you find UCB?
LK: My friend Nicole Drespel—we went to college together and were in a college improv group called Dead Serious at Wellesley College. We were kind of the two people that were very into improv and took it seriously. We’d talked about maybe going to Chicago after we graduated but Nicole’s from outside of New York and was working in New York. She ended up going to the Del Close Marathon and she had called me after she saw it and was like, “Oh my god, there’s this theatre—you have to move to New York and take classes here,” because I was still in school. When I was in college I would come down and see shows every now and then.
Lauren and Erin were nice enough to let me say “I know” and “like” into a tape recorder repeatedly.
Baby, once in a while / think about me
