#5 3.20.16 Interview with Bill McLaughlin

March 19, 2016

In the early days of improvisation in New York City, you could not find a funnier or more experienced comedy improvisor than Bill McLaughlin. Bill was trained by master improv guru, Del Close and came to NYC from Chicago with Chicago City Limits improv troupe, modeled after Second City. They performed short form improv and put on full sketch shows. Bill was the comedy cog that made the group 'tick'. Bill was also Workshop Director of New York’s First Amendment Improv Company for seven years, during which time he taught none other than actor and comedian John Leguizamo.
