“Well it was just the loudest I’ve ever heard you say anything. And it was ‘cranberry.’”

-my BFF after Stepfathers tonight.

I’ve said 10000x how much I admire Shannon O’Neill and tonight at Strangers Wanted, she proved herself to be great once again. I always respect the way that she won’t allow anyone to feel ashamed for doing something they seem to feel is laughable or embarrassing, whether it’s loving “Frozen,” going to a school that’s not well-known, or what have you. Tonight, her second guest revealed that he used to edit comedy videos and she brought his website up on the screen. He was sort of hesitant or self conscious, but his reel was funny and had so many great things in it. We all loved it and at one point he said that watching it made him feel like he’d lost something. Shannon turned it into (sorry i hate this phrase but it’s the only thing i can think of) a teaching moment and encouraged him to return to this because he was really good at it. It’s something that I’ve noticed with Shannon, whether it’s at Strangers Wanted, on TCGS, or even when I saw her hosting Lady Jam: She seems to find opportunities to lift people up and inspire them to do better or to try and achieve something. What I like so much about Strangers Wanted is that Shannon has a genuine interest in people. She knows exactly what to ask and can always make it entertaining to watch. But my favorite moments at Strangers have been the ones like this when everyone is on board, supporting some total stranger. Wouldn’t it be great if he took this to heart and found what he had lost, went on to continue creating something and achieved his dreams? 

And that is why Shannon is great.

PS: during the second set of Stepfathers, I shouted out “cranberry!” as a suggestion, an homage to this week’s TCGS video “A Word With Shannon O’Neill.” They used it. It was funny. I was am still mortified that I shouted it out.

I try not to re-blog things that praise me, I just do what I love and that makes me happy. I’ve been living that way for 14 years.

But sometimes I need to so I can say-

HEY PEOPLE REALLY LIKE MY TALK SHOW STRANGERS WANTED! EVERYONE LEAVES SURPRISED AT WHAT IT TURNED OUT TO BE, INCLUDING MYSELF.

I’d really like more people to come and see this show. I am not good at bragging, unless a basketball team plays Box and 1 on me, I’ll brag about that all day, or if I parallel park into a spot that is 1 inch longer than my car,   I’ll brag about that, but I have a hard time bragging or promoting myself in the one area that I am trying to make a career. What is wrong with me?

So here is a brag. My Talk Show is dangerous, I step out on stage by myself and then build my house band, warm-up comic, side-kick and guests with audience members I have never met before, complete strangers. I don’t know what they are going to do, I don’t know if they will answer my questions in an ideal way. I DO KNOW I AM GOING TO HAVE FUN.

That is why I do it. I want to have fun, and I want to entertain, and I want to take risks, and I want to live life.

So keep an eye out on this link for when the June date is announced.

Okay, thanks for reading. Goodbye!

(via spotastic) This show is so great. It encapsulates what is great about UCB and improv and specifically Shannon O’Neill - she is the most supportive person there is. She is so genuinely surprised and delighted by people, and you can feel it anytime she is on stage. When I have been taught by her or gotten to play with her you can feel her rooting for you, and it really makes people do their best. Go see this show!

“My main advice for people who want to do improv and comedy is that you’re going to fail a lot, many more times than you succeed. You just have to be okay with that. That’s the main thing I can say: you just gotta be ready to stick with it and you gotta be ready to be knocked down. I’ve been rejected by every job in New York, but I just keep finding new things to do, I just keep trying to be creative and do cool stuff.”  - Chris Gethard, in his interview on HelloGiggles.
