Miles Stroth invites a guest from the improv and acting community for a live interview before a 25 minute long form improvisation set.
Miles Stroth began his study of improvisation in 1987 at the famed Second City Theater in Chicago. In 1990 he began working with Charna Halpern and Del Close at the then ImprovOlympic, now IO in Chicago. Miles has been associated with the IO, teaching, performing, directing, ever since. Wanting to express his own unique perceptions of the work to students, Miles opened The Miles Stroth Workshop in 2007.
Miles was a member of the seminal improv team The Family, whose members included Adam Mckay, Matt Besser, Ian Roberts, Neil Flynn and Ali Farahnakian. The Family, directed by Del Close, created and introduced into the improv world The Deconstruction and The Movie forms. Miles had the privilege of working with the late Del Close for eight years. Del saw the improv community as a tribe with himself as the Mojo Man and referred to Miles as his Warchief.
