Episode 3 of the Sick Puppies Comedy Podcast with Jud Williford

Posted on Updated on

In this episode, I get to connect with my old friend Jud Williford. We both graduated from the University of Evansville in 2001, but Jud became company member at the American Conservatory Theater for 3 years where he did a lot of teaching. And a lot of acting
For over a decade, involved in more than 70 professional productions across the country working with Tony award winning directors at Tony award winning theaters.

He recently toured with Wicked on the first and second national tours for over two years and has been coaching and teaching acting using techniques he has used to be successful.

His philosophy: “I believe that everyone possesses a core truth and voice that is unique to them and that if accessed it can be the emotional fuel that keeps the engine of expression running.”

We talk about what it takes to keep your mind right as you try to “make it”.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

SPC Podcast Episode 1: Jeff’s Place

Posted on Updated on

We are so excited to reboot our dormant Sick Puppies Comedy podcast by talking about a new web series that just came out this week.  Jeff’s Place, created by Jeff Galfer and Angry King Productions is “Twin Peaks and Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood converge in this strange new world of lessons, sharing, and parallel realities.” It’s only 6 episodes at about 5 minutes a show, so you can watch it all quite quickly.

In our first podcast, I talk to Jeff about the concept, how his team collaborates and the tone of the piece.  I find the show to be a comedy, however Galfer didn’t have any particular genre in mind when creating the series.  In fact, he claims that he hates punchlines.  I found the entire season to be wonderful, original and extremely sharp in production quality.

I had  Jeff for two podcast episodes.  Our first one discusses Jeff’s Place while the 2nd episode, or “Part 2” talks about “Making your own break” or how to survive in Hollywood. Our podcast episode is below.  You can hear all of our podcasts by clicking here.

Here’s the first episode of Jeff’s Place called Mirror Face.  You can watch all episodes at www.JeffsPlaceShow.com I recommend watching Teleportation.  That happens to be my favorite.
