We’re BACK from a looong hiatus, and we’re doing something new: for Back 2 School Month, we’re talking to RECENT college grads, about their college stories that JUST happened, and what it’s like getting into showbiz now.
We’ve got Timmy McBride & Russell Stewart on the show today – Timmy hosted our old late night talk show at Ball State for 3 years, and Russell was a producer on the show and they both did improv as well. Timmy went to Chicago after graduating in 2015 and Russell interned at Conan, moved to NYC and paged with Colbert and is now working with CBS.
We talk about culty college improv groups, how Tim wasn’t allowed into IMPROV because he didn’t look “cool” enough, Russell tried to become a cop and ended up in TV, and one of them gets cock blocked by a dog. They describe how to spot a “townie” (hint: he PULLS A GUN AT A PARTY) and how they both found the worst college house of all time, which nearly literally sunk into hell. Or the Earth. Same thing. Oh, and the greatest way to catch a liquor thief we’ve heard yet. Follow and HIRE Tim & Russell!
