Improviser/Actor Brad Sherwood is joining the conversation on Cue To Cue today! I was so glad I was able to catch Brad before he left for Australia to meet up with Colin Mochrie and Greg Proops for the Just For Laughs festival!
Brad is letting us see into his career and heart today. He shares where his love for comedy comes from and how he figured out at a young age that humour is a useful tool to connect with people and how humour is the one element of the ever-changing entertainment industry that never seems to go out of style stating, “ Humour in its multiple forms will never be obsolete because everybody is always going to want to laugh. Through good times and bad times, everybody loves to laugh.”
In this episode:
- Why he never wants to choose volunteers from the audience that are overzealous to join in improv games
- What the two different types of synthesis that improvers are constantly trying to make happen in order to have an impactful, funny and compelling scene
- How finding the funny in every situation is a way of life for him
- The fundamental differences between improvers and stand-up comedians
- What Brad hey learned about having longevity as an artist in the entertainment industry
