I was able to stop David from circling the world and have him tell us his story. David Razowsky is THE guy. The Improv Guru, the Point of View Viewer, the man with the quotes, the empathetic beast… the damn good human.
After listening to his podcast (A.D.D. Comedy with David Razowsky) in 2013 where he had Steve Carell on his show, I knew I needed him down to Boca to teach the South Florida Improvisers. So after four visits to South Florida and 4 years of friendship, we get this podcast!
Razowsky is one of the original people to ever do a Harold at iO (Formerly Improv Olympic) and a former mainstage cast and tourco member at Second City along side some of the greats like Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell as well as the former artistic director of Second City Los Angeles for 10 years. He travels the world teaching improv and making people become the best versions of the themselves.
I’m certainly a better person for knowing him and I hope you will be too after listening to this episode.
Ahmed Bharoocha is primarily known as a Stand Up Comedian. He recently released his 30 minute special on Comedy Central and simultaneously his album “Almond Badoody”. You can find the album on itunes, spotify and amazon music.
He’s a super nice guy and someone to look out for.

This was a fun episode. I got to have a chat with one of my favorite improvisers on the planet, Douglas Widick, a founding member of North Coast Improv, a Hip Hop Improv group. In my opinion, THE HIP HOP IMPROV group. He was so kind to let me ask about how he got to where he is.
Douglas Widick is a founding member of Hip-Hop Improv group, North Coast, which was named one of Timeout NY’s Top 10 Comedy Shows of 2014. Additionally, his Musical Sketch comedy group, Pop Roulette, is currently running their latest show, Amazing Earth, at the UCB Theatre. They were also named one of Comedy Central’s ‘2015 Comics to Watch’ landing them a video deal.
He recently concluded several runs at the UCB Theatre including The 2017 Tony Awards (UCB) and The Dead Dads Club (UCB), amd performs monthly with UCB Theater NY Maude Sketch Team Hot BIrd. Doug teaches an 8-week Hip-Hop Improv class, and was recently seen in the Off-Broadway musicals F#%king Up Everything and Blank! The Musical. You can catch his many comedy videos at http://www.Douglaswidick.com.
Douglas is an off-beat comedy whiz whose improv background and acting chops combine to make him a formidable comedic talent on stage and screen. Consistently adding heart to irreverence, and finding the funny in touching moments, Douglas adds a three-dimensional spin to every role he plays. Recently coming off a critically-acclaimed off-broadway run in Blank! The Musical at New World Stages, Douglas will make a vibrant addition to your upcoming production.
I hope you enjoy this 5th installment of our podcast. We interview Peter Story in this episode. Peter is a company member of the B Street Theater in Sacramento and just recently returned from a 2 year tour of the one man show “Men Are From Mars, Women are From Venus”. He’s a film actor as well and been on The Tonight Show as well as every imaginable type of show you could think of. He has a lot of honest insights to the industry and I’m very proud of the content in this episode. Won’t you have a listen?
David Carl is a good friend and fellow graduate of the University of Evansville. He graduated from Rutgers in 2006 while simultaneously going through UCB. He later found his way over to The Magnet and The Pitt. We talk about acting, improv, stand up and how they all have worked together to develop his projects, like “Gary Busey’s One Man Hamlet”.
Enjoy the episode. As always, tell us your thoughts.
