Description

Joe Canale has done it all in the improv world. He’s an alumni of The Second City Main Stage in Chicago, and has performed too many shows to list at iO and Boom Chicago. Jimmy talks with Joe about why he’s so comfortable being “a lighting rod,” what he learned from hosting an improv jam when he was just starting out, and why he wishes he would’ve stayed at Boom Chicago and Second City for just one more year. Joe Canale is always honest and always insightful.
