[EP 42] He Crazy! feat. Chris Trew, Vanessa Gonzalez

Hola Digheads! This is a fun one! Mike Moran is still shampooing his hair, so Josh invited fellow improvisers and BIG members Thomas Dotstry and Megan Wills to take on co-host duties to interview improviser, comedian, rapper, air sex judge, The New Movement Theater founder – Chris Trew! Chris also brought along fellow improviser and member of The New Movement Theater, Vanessa Gonzalez.

We had a chance to chat with Chris and Vanessa while they took a break from searching for air sex champions all across our great nation. Chris is based in Austin and New Orleans where he runs The New Movement (which will be expanding to Houston). The Austin Chronicle once said “Chris Trew is out of his fucking mind.”

He tours often, performing a variety of projects. He’s performed at over 50 comedy festivals in North America. Onion A.V. Club saw Chris perform and said that he “boldly explores that blurry line between humor and performance art.”

During the interview, Chris shares the story behind his and (his partner) Tami’s split from a major improv theater they helped to found in Austin. Let’s just say that Janet isn’t the nicest person. From the ashes of that split, TNM and Chris’ burgeoning comedy empire in the South was born! Which is a wonderful thing because Chris and TNM provide stage time and a path for a variety of performers.

We also discuss a number of topics for this episode including, but not limited to: DIY attitudes, investing in local culture, air sex championships, improv, work ethic, wrestling, the dark side of improv cage matches, plane rides, and so much more!
