Comedy Fails Are Gold: Interview with Comedian and Actor Sean Kleier

1/29/2019
More
Clearly Sean and I have nothing whatsoever in common. We had a hard time connecting about comedy and improv on another podcast we met on and so we decided to put ourselves through the misery of disagreeing on everything again on my podcast. It was a sad sad day that we met and we hope it never happens again. We have together made the world a worse place filled with apathy and no enthusiasm for our work. SHOW NOTES: Sean Kleier is an actor and comedian and writer, known for Ant-Man and...

Scattered Much??

So right about now you are probably in one of two camps: either doubling down on some New year’s resolutions, or you’re like, um, screw that. I don’t do resolutions.

Neither resolutions nor workbooks to change your life are what I’ll be talking about today! Today we are going to talk about feeling SCATTERED. Uuuugghhh. Feeling scattered is EXHAUSTING.

Trying Really Really Really Hard

11/27/2018
More
Last summer I planted a flower bed with an automatic irrigation system and my Dad and I put in a soaker hose that lives underground but right near the flowers. And we attached it to the hose bib coming out of the house where the water comes out, and then ran it around all the plants. But it didn’t work very well and the plants at the top of the little hill it was on started to die and we couldn’t figure out why. Finally my dad figured out that we had run it from the bottom of the little...

Find Something To Suck At

11/13/2018

I am reading a book called Life Reimagined by Barbara Bradley Haggerty, and she tells a story about her father who tried to learn French and continued to do it for years and years hardly being able to speak it well at all but just kept on doing it I assume because he liked it on some level. But the great line that her father said was: “Some things are worth doing poorly.” What a great and hilarious idea for an over achiever to ponder!

Promoting Myself Into Oblivion

You know how sometimes people talk about weight-creep? Gaining pounds after having a baby or menopause? It’s like that. I have self-promotion-creep. And here’s the biggest question I have for all of us. Does it even work? I don’t mean does it make me money, does it make us famous, does it make us “successful” whatever the hell that means. I mean if the “goal” is a happy fulfilling life, but you’re doing something that makes you feel yucky and narcissistic for 95% of your day, is that...

Cut Out The Dead Weight

7/31/2018

We want to take a look at what’s holding us back and while some things may be obvious (a job your hate, a partner that’s not pulling their weight, an unfinished project that’s weighing on you), there are tons of things out there that you don’t even notice are holding you down because you’re so used to them. A friend of mine kept her lousy assistant for 10 years. She felt so guilty when she thought about firing her. She just couldn’t do it. Well when things finally came to a head and she...

When my friend Sarah was in deep, deep labor, she told me, she suddenly became utterly polite, apologetic and thanked everyone around her continually. She was being the “good girl” she was conditioned to be. I myself swore like a sailor and decided the grass was definitely greener somewhere else right at that moment. Another friend got angry at her husband and started telling him this was all his fault, and yet another woman I know let everyone else make all her decisions for her and...

Uh oh. Katie’s gonna force you to like something that you hate again. In improv, we have rules and gimmicks to our games.
