Experimental Troupe Comedy (ETC)



Will Corwin speaks with members of Experimental Troupe Comedy aka ETC, among them Chrisopher Chan Roberson, Jamil Ellis and Gene Perelson, just in advance of their special Halloween 2009 gig at 8 p.m. at People's Improv Theater (The PIT).



These guys met on Ms. Sheinman's Speech and Debate Team at Stuyvesant High School 15 years ago. E.T.C.: Experimental Troupe Comedy is the result of that friendship, and I never would have imagined they still be going at it as I sat in the Jefferson Market Library screening room 14 years ago--I also never imagined I'd have a radio show either, but enough about me. For those who are curious about the inner workings of the Comedy scene--getting a gig, the differences between stand-up comedians and sketch comedians (stand-up comedians are angrier), how to deal with bad audience suggestions in improv, these guys explain it all. They also talk a bit about the scene and how ETC is transforming it via the Internet. Adopt-a-black-baby.com comes up a lot (33 minutes).

We welcome all to participate. Cultural groups can email us to set up a recording session.
