What a delight to chat with beloved improviser, Jonathan Pitts. We chatted about improv, mythology, Joseph Campbell, and psychiatrist Car Jung who were some of his influences.
My interview with Jonathan was so much fun, I’m posting it as a two-part interview with our fascinating guest!
I’d taken a few classes with Jonathan, whose 30-plus years as an improviser and coach make him a master artist.
