In comedy, creating a good character is hard.  This week’s guest, Livia Scott, is creating 365 good characters in 365 days.  That’s 1 a day.  See, we told you we could do math.  (We’re learning about imaginary numbers next week.  Dustin doesn’t believe they exist.  Dan thinks he might be right)

We discuss:  How can you come up with a solid character?  What comedy group does the most impressive characters? How to create characters that are a different sex, race, ethnicity or hair color than you? (spoiler: redhead is the hardest to do)  Afterward check out Livia’s characters so far on her YouTube page and become her fan/friend on facebook.

And don’t miss another hilarious clip from our buddy Lou Fernandez over at
