TCCS #3: All the Awards
In episode 3 of The Talent Crush Chat Show, Chris & Stevie learn The Truth About Licorice. Stevie gets so loquacious about the tremendously talented Viola Davis that there’s no time for Chris to have a crush. Then the pair interview the delightful LA-and-Portland-based multi-talent Carla Cackowski! Plus, Unreliable Advice!
Viola Davis is phenomenal. She is an activist, philanthropist, and a Triple Crown of Acting winner. Viola can currently be found on How to Get Away with Murder, and has starred in such films as The Help, Doubt, Prisoners, and Fences.
In Doubt. ([S] This should have won the Oscar. If you’re not weeping by the end of this scene you don’t have a soul.)
Carla Cackowski is a writer, actor, voiceover artist, improviser, improv teacher, and podcaster extraordinaire! She hosts the podcast Improv Yak, where she talks to fellow improvisors about all things improv, and also co-hosts the Craig's List Podcast with her husband Craig, wherein they watch and talk about his 100 favorite movies (and some of Carla's favorites, as well!) She is currently the Co-Artistic Director of Curious Comedy Theatre in Portland, OR, and will soon be taking on the position of Training Centre Director at M.I.’s Westside Comedy Theatre in Los Angeles.
