I want to meet people from different places and really get to know them
I'm an improviser, stand-up comedian, writer, actress and lover of good food. I am a huge comedy nerd, but not awkward about it. I like meeting people and being social and I especially like it when it's a big ol party and lots of people are around listening to music and having fun. movies, TV, theatre, books... I'm into it. all of it. I'm pretty easy to be around. sEriously ask anyone :)
fall then figure out what to do on the way down.
Try something, if it doesn't work, try something else.
Strength lies in being bold.
yes and... (an improv guideline)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I host people and I couch surf. Mostly in Chicago.
Through this website?! not much. BUT I've slept on a couch or two in my day... and the floor. .. I won't make you sleep on the floor. I studied abroad in England in the spring of 2010 and found some sweet hostels and couches to sleep on. Would love to tell you all about it!
IMPROV! comedy, television, theatre, film/music festivals, Groucho Marx, bubble wrap, mail that's not a bill I have to pay, Jimmy Fallon, SNL, 30 rock, Parks & rec, Del Close, Charna Halpern, Chris Gethard, The Onion News Network and candy.
- music festivals
Music, Movies, and Books
Anything remotely tied to SNL, I'm into it. Also, if EW or NYT has said good things, I'm into it.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I feel like this is a lame answer, but I love the ocean. Something about standing on a beach and seeing water go on and on and on and on as far as the eye can see. It really, truly amazes me.
Teach, Learn, Share
I could teach you a thing or two about improv. I haven't been doing it very long, but I've put myself in the world 100% and have developed some strong opinions and philosophies. I can talk about improv for hours with the right person.
Also, movies. I love movies to a crazy almost obsessive degree. So much so that I put them before most things. College would've been easier without them, but it would've been alot more boring, too.
I have an acoustic guitar! I got it as a gift, but can only play one song. I'm always intrigued by people who can teach me something on guitar... though most are unsuccessful, it's often a fun time.
