From his 10 revues at Chicago's Second City performing with the likes of Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, Amy Sedaris, and Rachel Dratch, to the 10 years he spent as Artistic Director of The Second City Hollywood, to the countless worldwide workshops and performances he's engaged in, to his TEDx Talk, “Life: The Product is the Process,” David Razowsky has developed a simple approach to improvising: Your present awareness is the only thing you need to create compelling, smart, truthful, and surprising scenes. Period. No games, no preconceived premises, no ideas, no ego. All that matters is now.
David joins Stephen, Eric, and Kam to talk about:
-how David realized what he wanted to do in life through answering why he feels he’s on this planet: to help people.
-the uncanny similarities between improv and buddhism.
-David’s TEDx talk about the value of living in the moment.
-the importance of giving yourself a round of applause once in a while.
Then the quartet somersaults gracefully into some self-help, including interpreting a quote from Inspirobot, what to do about a "sloppy" tattoo, advice for Channing Tatum now that his new children's book is out, and so much more.
