IMPROV TO GET EXCITED ABOUT - LAURA KRAFFT, JODI LENNON & MIRIAM TOLAN

Fridays in December just got more awesome. Grand masters of improv and longtime lady pals Laura Krafft (The Colbert Report), Jodi Lennon (Exit 57) and Miriam Tolan (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart), take the Magnet stage in "What a Year! An Improvised Play." I asked Jodi Lennon for the important deets:

"What a Year!" will be 30 minutes of improvisation. For a limited time, the three of us are in the same place at the same time. So we're thankful to get the 7PM Friday slots because they work with our crazy schedules.

If you're not familiar with Krafft, Lennon and Tolan, Lennon says:

We were all in Chicago studying and performing improv in the '90s. I called the Annoyance Theater my home and performed with improv Olympic and at Second City. Laura and Miriam were both at Second City and iO, as well.

I met Miriam at Second City in Chicago and met Laura in Los Angeles. We  had a lot of friends in common. I performed with Laura a bit in L.A. at an iO West show she hosted. I was hooked. I also did "Let's Have a Ball" with Laura at the UCBT-NY. Laura is super duper funny and smart.

Miriam and I saw each other around here in New York; we would do A.S.S.S.S.S.C.A.T. together occasionally or Conan bits. Miriam is also crazy funny and a smarty pants -- she kills me. And her accent is AMAZING. Miriam and I did a short run of a show called the Goofaround Gang at the UCB (me, Miriam,  Brian McCann, Kevin Dorff and Jon Glaser). It was goofy improvisation.
