Today’s episode I sit down (and drink) with Chris Evan Simpson.
Chris is a great guy, and it was a blast talking with him. He’s an example of how being a likable person can actually lead to good opportunities.
Actor/Comedian/Singer, Chris and I met performing on Musical Megawatt at Magnet Theater. Improvising entire musicals, Musical Megawatt showcases some of the best in the scene. Chris is one of the longest performing players on Musical Megawatt. It’s not surprising. He’s a cool and funny dude, and he commits hard on stage.
We spoke right before the final performances of “Puffs!” ended it’s Off-Broadway run at New World Stages. "Puffs," or, "Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic & Magic," is a Potter inspired comedy for anyone who has ever felt like a secondary character in someone else's story. Hilarious and surprisingly heartfelt, it really is a magical show. Chris talks about his time there as the swing for “Cedric / Oliver,” as well as navigating through this industry and the many ways musical improv is amazing.
He also deals with me getting tipsy off one beer.
