EPISODE 14: john hughes vs. kevin smith

Guest: Jessica Belbin

Jessica Belbin and Rob Janowski get all auteur-istic in this director’s cut of Improv vs. Metaphor. It’s like they prepared, but trust us, they didn’t… they just both happened to have this knowledge in their head. There are some advantages to storing IMDB in your brain, and clearly loving movies so hard! Super hard movie-loving here guys!

Improv vs. Metaphor sits a guest improvisor down with host Rob as they try to find the best possible metaphor for improv. Improvisors have no time to prepare, but plenty of podcast-time to figure it out. Who wins the battle? Improv does.

WheelOfImprovEpisode 13: WTF JUST HAPPENED

Guest: A version of Josh Bertwhistle we’re not sure is real.

Guest Host Jbel wanders haphazardly into the cursed episode, where she tries to make sense of a possessed Josh Bertwhistle. He must be possessed, right? IT’S CURSED. FOR REALZ! Never build a 13th floor, and we probably shouldn’t have recorded this episode. You have been warned. *The Kinkonauts and Improv v. Metaphor are not responsible for anything you do while under the influence of Josh Bertwhistle.

Guest: Ben Gorodetsky

Hosts Rob Janowski and Owen Chan chat with guest improvisor – on loan to us from Edmonton’s Rapid Fire Theatre – Ben Gorodetsky! Ben wasn’t sure how geeky about improv and music we should get in this thing, so we just went full out. Here’s a list of musical things we don’t talk about: 8 tracks, speaker systems, fidelity, synthesizers, and sick bass. But there’s a whole bunch that we do.

EPISODE 11: rock VS. jazz

Guest: Nicole Zylstra

Guest host JBel and guest Nicole Zylstra rock out to the smooth sounds of jazz in our first guest host episode! You don’t need to know much about music theory to get into the nitty gritty as these two powerhouse improvisors discuss the structure of kicking out the jams, telling stories, and doing their best Beatles impersonations. Is your improv more like rock, or more like jazz? Let us know in the comments.

Improv vs. Metaphor pits an improvisor against host Rob as they each try to defend their side of the battle as the best possible metaphor for good improv. Improvisors have no time to prepare, but plenty of podcast-time to make their case. Who wins the battle? Improv does.
