TSOYA Classics: Live in New York (December 1st, 2006)


This week's classic episode brings us part one of The Sound of Young America's first live on-stage show (aw!), recorded at The People's Improv Theater in New York City.

The standup comedian Heather Lawless, who is part of the live show Variety Shac, begins with ruminations on her body issues and other relatable topics, related in her fabulous Southern drawl.

Then we hear from Mike Daisey, the amazing storyteller, actor, and author of 21 Dog Years: A Cube Dweller's Tale. Mike spends some time telling us stories of his time spent in frozen Northern Maine, giving us a alternately funny and scary portrait of his youth.

The actor, director, and writer David Wain then joins the stage for a conversation with Jesse to talk about his film The Ten and being a part of the hotbed of creative talent that was the sketch comedy show The State.

And finally, we wrap up with a performance from hip-hop group Tanya Morgan. Enjoy.
