Comedian Fills Big Shoes At Second City
In summary, a 21-year-old from the KC area took one improv class on a whim to fulfill an elective. Her teacher (EDIT: Brian Posen, who is actually a teacher at Second City, not Brian Posehn, who Bull correctly suggests would not be allowed near college students) suggested she try out for SECOND FREAKING CITY.
Of course, she was accepted.
After one improv class.
Now, granted, she IS a musical theater major, so she had already honed a lot of the tools that would make her a valuable commodity to Second City.
But how does that make you feel?
I admittedly rolled my eyes and thought, well yeah...she probably got accepted into the training program, or MAYBE the touring company.
But I don't know the details, and those thoughts were only to minimize her accomplishments to make me feel better.
If I'm being truthful with myself, my emotions were as follows: jealousy and resentment.
