“Taco Bell Party”
August 13th, 2012

Improv emphasizes showing over telling, a principle that often manifests in a technique known as “the invisible game” on Key & Peele. The central joke of these scenes is ladled out, beat by beat, but never spoken of. “The audience loves to figure things out,” says Key, who has extensive professional acting experience and a unique physicality honed by emulating silent masters such as Chaplin and Keaton. “They love it when a performer leaves a trail of bread crumbs for them, and they get to participate in the comedy.”

Somehow, quietly announced earlier this month (we didn’t hear about it until reading this interview over at Splitsider), Dan St. Germain has several projects going at Comedy Central including a web series and a possible TV series.
Hopefully, all of this gets picked up and put on screens soon.
Oh yeah, his episode of Comedy Central’s The Half Hour is this Fri. May 17th at 12AM.
This is great!
I’m pretty sure I saw Dan at the pizza place I go to last week, but I didn’t say hi cause when I’m getting pizza that’s my number one, ya know
