You'd think that after a high-energy improv gig at Theatre 99, the visiting members of the Upright Citizens Brigade Touring Co. would want to kick back and relax. Instead, they partied in the lobby until midnight.
The frolicsome personae of Jim Woods, Neil Casey, Lennon Parham, Shannon O'Neill, and friends are not just something they switch on for the stage. These people have no off button. They didn't act up just because they were being filmed. They did it because it's in their blood.
I talked to a couple of the performers as well as local comedy hero Greg Tavares (The Have Nots!) and Theatre 99 alumni John Brennan (The Banana MANalogues).
