This week, Ira Sternberg spoke with Brad Sherwood, who (along with Colin Mochrie) will be performing in “Scared Scriptless” at the Pavilion Theater at Tropicana Laughlin June 25. In this episode of Talk About Las Vegas, Brad talks about why he liked being funny as a kid as a way to adjust to new circumstances; taking his first improv class and realizing he had found his career; why it’s important to establish a relationship with the audience; why he doesn’t have nerves before going on stage, but instead has “focused adrenaline”; how he was hired for “Whose Line Is It Anyway”; when he met Colin and how they became an act together; why their act appeals to a wide demographic: and why he considers improv a combination comedy show and a magic act.
Brad Sherwood is one of the greatest living American improvisers and loves writing about himself in the third person.
He is best known for his eighteen seasons, as a series regular, on the Emmy nominated ‘Whose Line Is It Anyway?‘ He continues to be a regular on “Whose Line,” which currently airs on the CW Network.
Brad has been touring the world in the critically acclaimed, live, two-man improv show: “Colin Mochrie & Brad Sherwood: Scared Scriptless!” He is also touring comedy clubs around the US with his fast and furious solo improv comedy show.
