This week, Yes But Why Podcast features the talent of Joe Liss & Molly Brenner! To celebrate the Out of Bounds Festival happening in Austin (Tues 8/28-Mon 9/3), Yes But Why is interviewing some of the performers and workshop instructors that are coming to town!
In the first interview, we talk to actor/writer/improviser Joe Liss about his adventurous life of performing and creating comedy. Joe Liss is a really nice guy. He will be teaching a workshop during OOB weekend and he will also be performing with his duo improv troupe Liss N Sams! Joe shares stories about getting his Equity card at Second City, writing a movie for Chris Farley and immersing himself in the San Francisco improv scene. Joe has written and created many amazing characters during his career and he can help you find yours in his workshop!
In our next interview, Amy talks to comedian and content creator, Molly Brenner. Molly’s the kind of person that doesn’t let anything get in the way of her dreams. Listen in as Molly tells stories of overcoming her fear of public speaking, pulling herself out of the doldrums of writing endless lists and creating comedy from personal, vulnerable material. This was a great conversation with Molly about figuring out what you love most as an artist and focusing all your passion and drive on that! Check out Molly’s one woman show about sexual identity, “Molly Brenner Is Not Coming!”
Support these wonderful artists while they are in town for Out of Bounds!
