Succotash Chats Epi155: Interactin' with Matt Besser
Hey, look. Or listen, rather. It’s me, Marc Hershon, your host and carpet remnant for Epi155 of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. I had a delightful bunch of soundcast clips lined up but then got the chance to chat with one of my more popular soundcast contemporaries. So I decided to go with another Succotash Chats installment and hold the clips until next time. Our special guest this episode is Matt Besser, host of the improv4humans soundcast and one of the founding members of the Upright Citizens Brigade, which has become one of the guiding lights for improvisational comedy in the US. I wanted to talk with Matt because of a special improvised narrative trilogy that he’s been doing recently amongst the regular improv4humans episodes, a three-part story entitled The Mopes. Along the way we chatted about how he first got up to speed on doing improv in Chicago, what it was like to hold down “normal” jobs before getting in the business of show, and some future improv-based plans for TV that he hopes will come about. Bookending that conversation is a double shot of our Burst O’ Durst segment with political comedian and social commentator Will Durst. And this episode of Succotash is brought to you by our friends at Henderson’s Pants and their oh-so-comfy Chillin' Churidars.

Marc Hershon does a great job talking in-depth about comedy podcasts, big and small, he is like "Entertainment Tonight" for comedy podcasts. His format allows for everything from a detailed review of shows and their cast, as well as to a cornucopia of clips and promos. If you like comedy podcasts and want to hear about old and new, and possibly expand your shows.
