When I went to NYU, I joined a sketch comedy group started by Mo Willems. It got too big, so a couple of us branched off and started a New Group, and that is where I met the fabulous Michael Showalter. I remember vividly one rehearsal where he did a sketch that was a guy trying to impress a girl on a date to the supermarket produce section, where they lay in the aisle staring up at the veggies. You probably know him from his excellent turns in The State, Stella, Wet Hot American Summer and The Baxter.
He's brilliant, hysterical, multi-talented and if you've seen some of his comedy, you know that he is a big music lover.
