We just watched “They Came Together” and it was SO incredibly funny. Besides Paul and Amy - Chris Meloni, Ellie Kemper, Bill Hader, Ed Helms and Zouks were all hilarious. Also, there are a few cameos/surprises that I won’t spoil but are so great. Please watch it, it’s really amazing.
+ after the show, we grabbed a bite to eat at a bar & grill next to the theater and as we were leaving, David Wain was sitting at a table outside and we talked briefly. It was just to say that we loved the movie and we’re big fans, but it was still very cool and exciting.
Tonight I was summoned to UCB to capture Mantzoukas perform with special secret guest, Amy Poehler. It was of course great, but what was more interesting was the Q&A they decided to do with the audience afterwards.
Random questions like what kind of jeans Mantzoukas was wearing, why they made certain choices in the scene, tips for doing two person improv and why he enjoys doing monoscenes.
I don’t know if he normally fields questions, but having Amy and Jason answer sincerely was like watching a little Master Class on Improv.
