10 Mintues with Michael Ananins
SAY WHHHHHAAAAATTTT??? WHAT AN INCREDIBLE “10 Mintues with Michael Ananins!!!” Thanks to Mark Turpin for the suggestion “I can’t believe it!” Stick around after as we talk about how Michael got into improv, the huge effect dogs and Emma Bird have have had on his life, having a safe space to play and pretend, finding the connections and more. Michael also shares his story about having schizophrenia and not being embarrased by it. How it shouldn’t be treated as a punchline, especially why people think of it more like a personality disorder. Michael is such a gentle soul and it shows. He takes each moment and plays it with gusto. He also focused on our relationship and making the word “unbelievable” so important in this scene, which reinforced the fun of the suggestion. He has such talent and it was a joy to play this scene. Follow him on Facebook and like his group Liverpool Comedy Improv.
