Seriously Unprepared Presents: Lives of the Prepared Image

When: Wednesdays. Continues through Feb. 8 2017

Comedy students and writers'-room diehards will get the most out of this laid-back conversation and two-person improv set emceed by Seriously Unprepared duo Jo Scott and Jeff Murdoch. Each week a different iO alum video calls in and answers questions about his or her professional experience postgraduation. At the show I attended, Conner O'Malley discussed his stint writing for Late Night With Seth Meyers and how routine it felt to develop material that was warmly received in the office but that unquestionably had no place on the show. Murdoch and Scott's set inspired by the chat ran a little longer than it ought to, but they did achieve the dubious distinction of pulling off the most macabre pregnancy-related joke I've ever heard. —Dan Jakes
