Alchemy This — A New Improv Comedy Podcast Now on iHeartRadio!
You’ve never heard improv comedy like this before—award-winning comedian and actor/director Kevin Pollak is rounding up five of his favorite, extraordinarily-talented improvisers to perform for Alchemy This, the newest iHeartRadio Original podcast live today!
Fans of the new hit comedy The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel will recognize Pollak from the show, where he stars as Miriam Maisel’s father-in-law, but Pollak’s no newcomer to the comedy scene. Comedy Central has named him one of the Top 100 Comedians of All Time, and he has appeared in dozens of films including The Usual Suspects, A Few Good Men, The Whole Nine Yards, Jason Reitman’s The Front Runner and 83 others.
In each episode of Alchemy This, Pollak will present his cast of improvisers—the “Alchemists”— with uniquely bizarre scenarios for them to bring to life together and capture lighting in a bottle, the way that only a great improv can. Listeners will also be invited to offer up settings, scenes and/or bizarre worlds to explore on the show.
