"Beautiful Boy"

While the film attempts to create a conversation between father and son, sponsor and addict, it sometimes falls short, making it feel more like a monologue than a dialogue.

The Improv Project students

Marc Evan Jackson only plays a demon on TV, or so he told me. The man behind the all-knowing judge of all matters in the afterlife is Marc Evan Jackson. Despite his role as the devil in charge Shawn on “The Good Place,” Mr. Jackson is anything but evil and, like me, a self-professed, incurable, devout improv nerd.

In a phone call with The Daily, Jackson described his first exposure to improvisational comedy as “life-opening.” He discovered improv by playing piano at rehearsal for River City Improv, a group formed by his former Calvin College classmates.

Gene Wilder in 'Young Frankenstein'

The great thing about a sense of humor is that it’s yours, and with the ever-expanding sphere of comedic content, you’re bound to find your funny.

"Three Identical Strangers"

What seems like a happily-ever-after type of tale twists itself into a dark nightmarish saga of deception, experimentation and loss as the nature of the triplets’ adoption becomes more clear.

As a woman (since the age of 11, thanks Aunt Flo) I have heard time and time again to censor myself.

Gilda Radner

Before there was Kate McKinnon, Tina Fey or Amy Schumer, there was Gilda Radner. Gilda was one seventh of the original 1975 Saturday Night Live cast also known as The Not Ready For Prime-Time Players (the other six were Jane Curtin, Larraine Newman, John Belushi, Chevy Chase, Garrett Morris and Dan Akroyd) and paved the way for so many comedians, especially women. The documentary “Love, Gilda” (which I was able to watch a screening of at the Nantucket Film Festival) tells the story of Gilda’s life from the funny to the un-funny, using archival voice recording narrations from Gilda herself.
