MiaB: What’s the name of your team?
LB: Scandal! (coached by one Alex Berg)
MiaB: How long have you been with the UCB?
LB: I’ve been on a UCB team for 7-8 months. I started taking classes the
day after I moved to Los Angeles, which was two years ago on June 18th
MiaB: What got you into improv?
LB: I got into improv to write sketch. I didn’t understand what longform
was at all. I still remember the first time someone explained a
Harold to me. I think my head nearly exploded. Actually, harold’s
still make my head explode now.
MiaB: Who is your favorite improv performer/team to watch?
LB: My favorite teams are, by far, The Smokes, Convoy, and Bangarang!
Which is more than one team. But they all offer such different
things! I can’t choose just one.
MiaB: What has been your favorite moment doing improv?
LB: Cheeze, there’s a new one every week. But I really like doing radio
harold’s with my team. One of our best all time scenes came from
talking about lake shrimp. You guys, there’s no such thing as lake
shrimp, and that’s why it was sooo funny. Describing improv scenes is
MiaB: Have you ever performed at the Del Close Marathon before?
LB: This is my first time going to DCM and I’m sooo excited. I hope I can
stay awake. I get really cranky if I don’t get a lot sleep. This is
more of an aside to my roommates.
MiaB: What time is your slot?
LB: Scandal! performs at 9:00 pm at UCB East(Friday)
MiaB: Is there anything that you would like to say to the people out there in the internets?

Thank you, Lindsey! Good luck this weekend and we will follow you on Twitter!
