[iframe style=”border:none” src=”//html5-player.libsyn.com/embed/episode/id/9432656/height/100/width//thumbnail/no/render-playlist/no/theme/custom/tdest_id/536894/custom-color/a93a3a” height=”100″ width=”100%” scrolling=”no” allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen oallowfullscreen msallowfullscreen]

On this episode of IT’S [Talk] TUESDAY: The Improviser’s Guide Podcast, TV and Broadway veteran Jason Kravits discusses performing the improbable; the hilariously spontaneous OFF THE TOP!  Backed by the most daring band in the business, Kravits invents an entire life story in song – music, lyrics, stories, characters – completely from scratch, based solely on audience suggestions. Every show is a once-in-a-lifetime show! Next stop is the Birdland Theater in NYC April 28th and 29th!

Jason has been fortunate enough to appear on stages and screens, large and small for over 30 years. He is probably best known for his long-running role as Richard Bay on ABC’s The Practice, though he has amassed over 40 other television appearances. These include recurring roles on The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, The Mick, Madam Secretary, Smash, The Michael J. Fox Show, Royal Pains, and Dallas, as well as memorable appearances on The Big Bang Theory, The Deuce, The Kominsky Method, Young Sheldon, Disjointed, Homeland, Kevin Can Wait, Instinct, Major Crimes, Blindspot, The Blacklist, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Hot in Cleveland, Married, Masters of Sex, Raising Hope, 30 Rock, The Good Wife, Gilmore Girls, CSI, Grey’s Anatomy, Everybody Loves Raymond and all the Law and Order franchises. Film Credits include Chinese Puzzle (Casse-tĂȘte chinois), The Stepford Wives, Sweet November, Morning Glory, Laura Gets a Cat, and What Just Happened. On Broadway, Jason is best know for his work in The Drowsy Chaperone. Other credits include Sly Fox and most recently, Relatively Speaking, three original one-acts by Ethan Coen, Elaine May and Woody Allen. He recently appeared in the City Center Encores! production of The Golden Apple as Mayor Hector. His one-man, improvised cabaret “OFF the TOP!” continues to perform regularly in New York, as well as in Los Angeles, DC, London, Adelaide and Melbourne. The show, winner of a 2017 Bistro Award, played to sold out crowds at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2017, and was invited to the Adelaide Cabaret Festival in 2018. In 1999, his two-man sketch show, An Evening with Kravits and Jones, won the Jury Award at the US Comedy Festival in Aspen, Co. He is a founding member of The Rumble in the Red Room writing collective, as well as the long-running University of Maryland improv troupe Erasable, Inc. As a writer, Jason has penned the 10-minute play Green Eggs and Hamlet, the holiday stories The Kvetch, and A Christmoose Story, as well as the acclaimed web-series Lords of the Playground. Jason is a native of the D.C. area, where he performed extensively at the Shakespeare Theatre, Round House Theatre and Woolly Mammoth Theatre Co. He is a member of the Actors Center Workshop Company.

S1E3: Theme Park Flores

In an interview conducted the week of March 11th for Theme Park Thursday with @DillosDiz, A. Ali Flores discusses his 20+ year career as one of the most recognized Central Florida entertainers. Ali’s passion for standup comedy began when he started doing audience warm-up for shows like Double Dare 2000, NBA All-Star Jam, Ripley’s Believe it or Not, Fox Family’s Summer Jam and, most recently, Family Feud with Steve Harvey. . His uniquely energetic show will have you laughing from start to finish. His instantly likable personality and his comedic routine is relatable to everyone. From subjects of race to sports to being a single dad he turns your real life (or rather his and those he comes in contact with) into side splitting, sometimes embarrassing, humor! You may have seen him in the ABC Family movie “My Future Boyfriend” or any of his many commercials. He just completed shooting the film “Random Tropical Paradise” starring Joe Pantoliano, Bryan Greenberg and Brooks Wheelan, the film “Naked” starring Marlon Wayans and an episode of “Good Behavior” set to air this fall on TNT.

Pascetti, who lives on a mountain top nearby, dislikes the snow. Through songs and snow day activities, Pascetti discovers not only that snow can be fun but also the value of friendship.
